Product Description

Truth can be thorny, even heartbreaking, yet Leah is required to make another difficult choice. Will this secret of secrets bring further sorrow for Leah, Sadie and the Ebersol family? At its heart, The Prodigal, is a multi-layered mystery and a saga of love, a story of deceit and untangled webs, of disgrace and redemption, encompassed by the merciful threads that knit families together.

Publisher's Description

Book 4 in the bestselling Abram's Daughters series. The compelling and continuing chronicle of Abram Ebersol's family, beginning in the mid-1940s, moves forward in time and scope to the late 50s. The devout Ebersols have faced sometimes-painful divisions and separations--if not geographical, those of the heart. Leah, possibly most of all, has borne losses and revelations that would have undone another whose faith was not firmly established in the God her beloved mother knew so fervently. Leah also has endured the ultimate test of her fortitude, the unexpected return of her shunned sister, Sadie, and the renewed sense of betrayal that arrives home with her. But since the close of The Sacrice, Leah has occupied her heart and hands with the overseeing of the Ebersol Cottage and the raising of her motherless younger siblings. This includes vivacious Lydiann, who has arrived at the traditional rumschpringe, the time for testing her wings and her willingness to commit to the Old Ways. Will she take the sorrowful path of her older sister Sadie, or will Mamma Leah's good judgment guide Lydiann safely to her baptismal covenant?

    Even though the ending was too good to be true, some of God's surprises in our lives ARE -- just too good to be true. Following God to the fullest produces faith and patience,and sometimes-- a surprise ending. The Prodigal was a good read from beginning to end!

    While I agree with most of the reviews--This series is certainly wonderful. But, this book #4, threw me off a little bit. The twists the book took seemed to me just to stretch it a little too far and cheapen the heartwarming story of this lovely Amish community. All in all, I love the books (and all others by Beverly Lewis) But, the way the story developed thoroughly disappointed me, so yes, it's a good read. But, I liken it to a soap opera now, which is disappointing. Though, of course I'm hooked on the series and will keep reading. Compared to the rest of the books in the series it's probably a one, but on it's own I gave it a three. I hope my comment is helpful.

    I have just finished reading "The Prodigal" and will find it VERY DIFFICULT now to wait until summer of 2005 to read book #5 (The Revelation)!!! I, too, have felt very connected to this Amish family and find myself very convicted in areas regarding sacrifices I am willing to make in my life. Thank you Beverly Lewis for the lessons we learn from reading this series!!

    Beverly Lewis continues to inspire God's purpose in the Abram's daughter fourth book. She continues to draw you in page by page of character's thoughts and actions. She leaves you thinking about true sacrific, and the gift's of God's promise to all who follow him faithfully.

    Once again, Beverly Lewis has written another heartwarming series about the Amish. Her first few series were wonderful and I am glad that I expected nothing but the best from this one. I can't wait to see how the hearfelt story turns out.
