Review: The Proving by Beverly Lewis
Blurb (from Amazon):
Amish Fiction's #1 Author Presents a Touching Story of Perseverance and Second Chances
Amanda Dienner hasn't seen her Old Order family in five years when she receives word that her mother has passed away and left her Lancaster County's most popular Amish bed-and-breakfast. Now an Englisher, Mandy is shocked: Her twin sister should have been the obvious choice! What's more, the inheritance comes with a catch: The farmhouse inn will only truly be hers if she is able to successfully run it for twelve consecutive months.
Mandy accepts the challenge even though it means returning to Gordonville and the painful memories she left behind at eighteen. Still, she's determined to prove she is more than capable of running the bed-and-breakfast, no matter that its loyal clientele are expecting an Amish hostess!
The inn isn't Mandy's sole test, however. Rubbing shoulders with her married twin sister reopens wounds that Mandy isn't ready to forgive. And an Englisher guest with a difficult past of her own just complicates matters.
Can Mandy fulfill the terms of her inheritance? Or will this year in Amish country prove a dreadful mistake?
The Proving is the newest release Beverly Lewis. I absolutely loved it. I would have to say it is probably my favorite written by her. I enjoyed all of the characters, especially, Trina. She had grown so much throughout the story. I, also, found myself wondering how one goes about staying in an Amish bed and breakfast. I would love to stay at Butterfly Meadows, as long as, Mandy is not cooking!
The Proving is a sweet and heartwarming story of learning to let go and forgive. Great read!
5 plus stars.
I personally purchased this book brand new. This really is one hundred percent my honest opinion.
