    This review was written for Secret, The - eBook.
    Grace Byler lives in Lancaster County, and her life is that of a typical Amish young woman. Yes, she's a little older than most girls to be still at home, but she has her mind set on a specific young man, and she's waiting patiently for him to ask her the big question. In the meantime, there have been some strange going-ons in the household. Her mother, Lettie, has taken to weeping into the stillness of the night, and going off on walks under the light of the moon after the family is asleep. After a month of strange behavior and growing aloofness, Grace's mother disappears into the night. The entire family is left reeling from the sudden departure of their mother, and nothing can be done to get her back.

    A young Englisher named Heather Nelson comes to stay for the summer at the neighbor's home, desperately trying to put her cancer diagnosis behind her. Terrified because her adoptive mother died pf cancer, she escapes to Amish country to clear her mind and her heart. Truly convinced she can beat her cancer naturally instead of doing chemo, she meets and befriends Grace at the local health food store. What kind of plans does God have for these two brokenhearted young women? Will Lettie ever return to her family? And will Heather find the healing for her body and soul?

    While I found this story to be enjoyable and thoroughly entertaining, my only gripe was that it was somewhat repetitive. Yes, we know Heather is sick, yes, we know Lettie up and disappeared, and yes, we know it's not typical for Amish mothers to do that. We've also read multiple times that Judah is not a man of many words, and I understand the concept.

    But all trivial things aside, this series kept me up all hours, reading way into the night, wondering what would happen to everyone in the end. I was actually taken by surprise at one point, because I didn't see a plot twist coming and got completely blindsided by a major element in the story. While it wasn't the best of the best, it was a solid read, and well worth it.

    This review was written for Secret, The - eBook.
    The story is very captivating and provides excellent reading. It held my attention from start to finish. The story is emotional as well as insightful. You really connect with the characters as they go about their daily lives.

    It was excellent to get this book via e-book download and start immediate reading. Saves us the waiting for delivery.

    Lewis is one of my favorite Christian authors and I have read all of her books. She always does a lot of research into the Amish culture and lifestyle. While I would not rank "The Secret" as Lewis' best book, I would say it is one of her better books. As with many of her series this first book ends with many unanswered questions and with nothing completely resolved. This makes the reader excited for the next book in the series to see what happens. On the whole, it leaves readers excited to see what will happen in the next book by leaving many unanswered questions. It tells an interesting story which keeps readers entertained and is definitely worth reading.
