Book 4 in the bestselling Abram's Daughters series. The compelling and continuing chronicle of Abram Ebersol's family, beginning in the mid-1940s, moves forward in time and scope to the late 50s. The devout Ebersols have faced sometimes-painful divisions and separations--if not geographical, those of the heart. Leah, possibly most of all, has borne losses and revelations that would have undone another whose faith was not firmly established in the God her beloved mother knew so fervently. Leah also has endured the ultimate test of her fortitude, the unexpected return of her shunned sister, Sadie, and the renewed sense of betrayal that arrives home with her. But since the close of The Sacri&supl;ce, Leah has occupied her heart and hands with the overseeing of the Ebersol Cottage and the raising of her motherless younger siblings. This includes vivacious Lydiann, who has arrived at the traditional rumschpringe, the time for testing her wings and her willingness to commit to the Old Ways. Will she take the sorrowful path of her older sister Sadie, or will Mamma Leah's good judgment guide Lydiann safely to her baptismal covenant?

I have to admit I had trouble starting this series and wasn't sure if I even wanted to read Beverly Lewis's Books ... they seemed so sad. However, I found that once I got into this darn series I could NOT put them down and where it took me over a year to actually pick up the first book and complete it ... I absolutely LOVED the series and I had purchased the first three books and could not wait for the second two to arrive! This has such a intermix of personalities, situations, heartbreak and yes, even finally happiness .. thank heaven's ... but I loved it! I am a "happy ever after" type of person ... yes, at 60 years of age, being happily married for 40 years this year to the man I am still head-over heels in love with ... along with our having 2 adult children that have given us 6 precious grandchildren ... and as a "Proud-to-be Christian Woman" I can say ... even with the struggles of life ... I BELIEVE in happy every after ... and love reading about them. This series was fantastic and I recommend it to anyone that loves Amish books ... it is filled with struggles ... I guarantee you, that it will exasperate you at times, break your heart at times, but it is very well written and well worth the time to read it. I had trouble putting the lasts 4 books down and even the first one after I got into it! GREAT SERIES!

I've read others by Lewis, although not all in this series. I thought that this one was more "Christian" than the others, and by that I mean that the author had particular beliefs that she was preaching in this book -- I am a Christian but found all the preaching annoying. I also found the "secrets revealed" angle just a bit too much -- overdone so that the effect was kind of soap opera-ish.

Nevertheless -- I enjoyed reading this book. This series is quiet and a bit slow, but these books do give you an idea of what it might be like to live as one of the Plain people (the Amish). It is, perhaps, idealized -- we know that the Amish are not exempt from some of the domestic problems that plague the rest of society. But this is largely a loving family, and the author helps us understand why so many of the Amish teenagers who must choose whether to remain among the Plain people or leave choose to stay. Perhaps the appeal of the Amish to the English (as they call non-Amish) is a longing for the tight-knit community portrayed among the Amish.

The plot isn't so much a plot as more like covering a number of years in the lives of these characters, whom we have gotten to know in earlier books in the series. Leah's mother has died in childbirth before this books begins, so when this volume begins, Leah is raising her younger brother and sister in a household that includes her father, grandfather, and bad-girl sister Sadie, whose husband has died and who has only had miscarriages after a disasterous teenage pregnancy (covered in earlier books). Leah is a loving, forgiving sister, and she has much to forgive her sister for -- but Sadie still grieves for the son who died at birth. Much of the book centers around that event and Sadie's struggle to be accepted back into the Amish community (she is more or less on probation, having been shunned previously but returning when her husband died.) Yes it's all very complicated, but as I said, this is a family saga kind of series. Lewis creates distinctive characters whom the reader grows to care about.

But perhaps other reviewers are right when they say that the series has really come to an end. Nevertheless, this book is well worth a read although perhaps not as good as the previous books in the series.

This was a marvelous way to see how God can and does work miracles in people's lives, but those miracles don't always happen on our time schedule. You also see the interweaving of God's plan in people's lives and how we can (and often do) try to go our own way with disastrous results.
  • Painbrand
This series is very good. You really need to read the first book which I believe is "The Covenant" and then proceed to the rest. All five are very good. You begin to "feel at home" when you read about these people and grow to love them. I am at the end of the last book and hate to finish it! The story line starts with the two oldest of Abram's daughters and weaves much of their lives throughout all of the books but this book in particualr focus's a lot on the things that having been brewing in Abram's life and brings some of his issues to a head. I have enjoyed all of them immensely but I as I already stated I do believe you have to read them from the beginning to benefit from the real story. Keep with them, becasue at some point you may be disappointed at how the story is going but you will see a wonderful story unfold if you continue on.

I found myself throughout the entire book wondering what would happen next.
I believe of the 4 out of 5 series that I've read number 4 is the best. Which means I of course am going to buy the last Revelation. I highly recommend all
4 so far. They have such strong characters, good storylines and endings. If you
want good Christian stories read this series.

The Prodical continues the story of the Amish family of Abram Ebersol. Beverly Lewis has a deep knowledge of the Amish beliefs of religion and following the lead of the Bishop of their church area. Because of the harsh attitude of the Bishop, Jonas cannot continue his woodworking vocation if he returns to the fold to marry his true love Leah Ebersol. He pledges to give up his life's work so that he can marry Leah. Lewis's weaving the story of these two who have saved themselves for so long for each other shows how strong the Amish religion is for those who follow its precepts.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the stories of Abram's daughters.

Beverly has done it again. The Prodigal is a Fabulous read. I love reading her books. I like the fact that they are very clean where most books of our time are not. It is so refreshing to find a writer that will write books with Values. Her books are very hard to put down. I have been a fan of her writing for years.
This series is the best I've read by Beverly Lewis. I usually don't spend a lot on e-books, but I couldn't resist. I was very captivated by the characters, especially Leah. I also enjoyed the growth in the characters' faith in Jesus.
