    Lizzy Ryder has written to Zack, he has jumped the fence, or after being Baptized Amish, left. He returns just in time to help save his sister Claras life; he did just that, by putting her in his car and driving her to the hospital.

    Claras illness is very serious, and Lizzy and her Amish Community are rather frantic, everyone loves and cares for Clara. Zack has to face his past and his future by being around his People, but he is shunned.

    I so enjoyed the interaction between Lizzy and Zack; they have grown up together, and acted like family their whole lives. Then the unthinkable happens, and they have to depend on one another for survival, and there appears to be danger lurking, and very strange things happening. I found this part of the book to be very interesting, and you never know what is going to happen next. Strange things are happening here, and you wonder just how bad the danger is and if the old fear Lizzy has is connected.

    From the beginning to the end I had to wonder if Zack would return, and if his family, other than Clara, will accept him. Also the rest of the community, some seem willing to turn their backs on him, and most seem to avoid him. What could have happened to make him leave where it seems he really wants to be. The answer will astound you and make you very sad, will he be able to return and accept the peace that seems to have followed him home? Will Lizzy and Zack become more than friends? How about Clara, will she survive? Most of the answers are here, and when you get to the end you are going to want more. Yes we there is a preview of the next book, cant wait!

    I received this book through Booketeria Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.

    There seems to be quite a bit of disagreement about this book most people love it but at least two reviews Ive read were clearly not impressed.

    I think a good part of the problem with some judgments might be similar to what we see from fans of historical fiction readers who are familiar with one specific community expect every book to be the same and thats just not how it works.

    Personally, I think the book is written as well as the last book of Beth Shrivers I read.

    No, every Amish fiction story is not the same. Life would be awfully boring if that were the case but Beth Shriver writes an interesting story about Clara and the community she is a part of.

    Claras Wish is a heartwarming Christmas read and a sweet story about friends coming together to give a wonderful gift to a dear friend.

    I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
