Review: The First Love by Beverly Lewis

Blurb (from Amazon):

It's the summer of 1951, and Maggie Esh is in need of some hope. Sweet-spirited and uncommonly pretty despite struggling with chronic illness, she is used to being treated kindly by the young men of her Old Order Amish church district. Yet Maggie wishes she were more like other courting-age girls so she could live a normal, healthy life.

To make matters more complicated, Dat has recently remarried, less than a year after her mother died. And while her stepmother is kind, Rachel is much younger than Mamm, and she simply doesn't understand Maggie or her illness the way Mamm did.

When tent revival meetings come to the area, Maggie is curious, and the words of the Mennonite preacher challenge her to reconsider what she knows about faith. Can she learn to trust God even when hope seems a distant dream?

My Review:

The First Love is yet another great read by Beverly Lewis. She never fails to write a fabulous Amish tale and this one does not disappoint. I enjoyed Maggie and Esh's story of love, hope and inspiration. I loved the plot line and I found it to be unique, as well as, heartwarming.

I give The First Love a well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for those who love faith filled Amish fiction.

I received this book from the publisher, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
