Product Description

Twenty-one-year-old Grace Byler longs to find her missing mother and to uncover the secret that drove her to leave them three weeks before. Grace suspects the reason has to do with her father and his reserved, uncommunicative ways. This conviction led Grace to break off her betrothal to her quiet, staid beau, and she is now resigned to remain single. But when the young Amishman she thought was courting her best friend takes a sudden interest in her, Grace is befuddled and wonders if he can be trusted.

"Englisher" Heather Lang has come to Amish country to relive fond memories of her mother and to contemplate a grave medical prognosis of her own. While in Bird-in-Hand, Heather meets Grace Byler and the two young women strike up a fast friendship, amazed by how well they click.

    This review was written for Missing, The - eBook.
    Lettie Byler is still absent from her family, but she is no closer to finding what she seeks on her journey. Grace is convinced that her father Judah's uncommunicative, silent manner is what drove her Mamma away. Breaking things off with her now-serious beau, Grace seeks to find the answers to her mother's disappearance. Grace's grandparents are mysteriously mum about what could have caused their daughter to leave, and while Judah's heart breaks every day for his missing wife, Grace pulls the family together during the busiest time of the year, lambing season.

    Heather Nelson strikes up a quick friendship with Grace, and finally tells her of her grave diagnosis. Grace is supportive of Heather seeking natural, alternative methods before seeking conventional medicine. While Heather has lost her adoptive mother to death, Grace has lost hers to an unknown reason that she has yet to discover. The girls seek solace from each other's company, all the while seeking answers to their big questions. Is Lettie ever truly planning to return? Or has she run away for good?

    While the first book in the series "The Secret" left readers with many unanswered questions, this book answers many of them for the reader. Unfortunately many of these questions are still unanswered for the characters in the book. Lewis does a great job of painting the frustration felt by each of the characters. Grace is frustrated by not being allowed to go search for her mother and having little to aid her in her search, Lettie encounters many difficulties in her search for the midwife, and Heather has a lot trouble trying to convince her father to her use the natural healing method. As a reader you cannot help but sympathize with each of the characters, what they are going through and wanting to help them with their situation. I particularly felt this way about Grace. I wanted to enter into the story, put my arm around her and tell her where her mother is.

    I like the fact that the book(s) is/are realistic, that not all is "rosy" all the time in this series of books and I feel it is imperative to get all 3 books in the series to understand just what is happening. I read every chance I get and try to guess what is going to happen next. It's keeping me on the edge of my seat wondering...is it going to turn out like I expect?

Author/Artist Review

Author: Beverly Lewis
Submitted: August 07, 2009

    Tell us a little about yourself.  My maternal grandmother was shunned from her cloistered, Plain community--in Paradise, PA, in Lancaster County, PA. Having heard the stories of her courageous move (toward Christ), I believed the world should hear her story. So I began writing adult fiction loosely based on her life.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  The amazing courage my grandmother, Ada Buchwalter, exhibited when she accepted Jesus as her Savior and Lord and began dating a ministerial student, whom she eventually married...and whom helped move her away from the Plain community, of which she was entrenched.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  THE MISSING is Book Two of my most recent series, "Seasons of Grace." I hope my readers will see and feel, through Grace Byler's viewpoint what happens when a family keeps secrets from each other. The havoc it can cause, as well as the redemption that comes with forgiveness.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  For several years, I've wanted to write this story about an Amish woman who flees her home and community in search of her past--to attempt to make right the wrongs she committed as a teenager. Lettie Byler's continuing story has brought me to an even more powerful knowledge of God's mercy and grace on all our lives!

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  God's Word is first and foremost for my inspirational reading. A true compass by which to measure one's life. I love, also, anything by Chip Ingram, Tozer, Andrew Murray, and Ogilvie. For my fiction reading pleasure, I enjoy very much: Dale Cramer's book, Levi's Will, and Lynn Austin's historicals, along with general market novelists--Kim Edwards, Elizabeth Strout, Alice Munro, Olive Ann Burns, and all the classic literature.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I love hearing from my readers and still attempt to answer hundreds of emails (via my web site) each month. Feel free to comment on my stories--I love your input. And have a delightful rest of the summer!
