Not all journeys come to an end....

1867. Ruth Holtz has more blessings than she can count—a loving husband, an abundant farm, beautiful children, and the warm embrace of the Amish community. Then, the English arrive, spreading incredible stories of free land in the West and inspiring her husband to dream of a new life in Idaho.


Breaking the rules of their Order, Ruths husband packs up his pregnant wife and their four children and joins a wagon train heading west. Though Ruth is determined to keep separate from the English, as stricture demands, the harrowing journey soon compels her to accept help from two unlikely allies: Hortence, the preachers wife, and the tomboyish, teasing Sadie.


But as these new friendships lead to betrayal, what started as a quest for a brighter future ends with Ruth making unthinkable sacrifices, risking faith and family, and transforming into a woman she never imagined shed become….

When Beverly Lewis’ book, The Guardian, came available for me to review, I jumped right on it and could not wait to receive my copy in the mail. Lewis is one of my favorite Christian authors and I could not wait to dive into this gem of a book. In this novel, Lewis transports her readers to Hickory Hollow, Pennsylvania where Jodi Whitfield finds a lost girl wandering on the side of the road. Jodi finds that the girl is unable to speak English and wonders where she has come from. This book is full of drama and mystery as Jodi searches to find the answers behind the young girls past. Beverly Lewis is a master at Amish fiction and does an amazing job of helping the reader to understand the culture of the Amish people. Pick up a copy of the Guardian, you will not be disappointed! I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers for review purposes only.
