Title: THE JUDGMENT
Author: Beverly Lewis
Publisher: Bethany House
Genre: Inspirational/Amish/Women’s fiction
Two Amish sisters, reunited by unforeseen circumstances…
Hen left the Amish years earlier to marry an English man, one that has completely destroyed—even forbidden—her to interact with her family. When Hen takes her four year old daughter and leaves her husband to return home to think, Brandon responds harshly, serving Hen with divorce papers, and threatening to take young Maggie and move near to his parents, and far from her.
Rose is promised to Silas, but she still can’t forget dear Nick, who ran from the Amish community when his foster brother, Christian, is killed. But a new girl has returned to the community as well, and it appears that Silas has eyes for her…not so much for Rose. Plus, Rose’s mother is worse, and it appears to be all Rose’s fault.
With the family in deep turmoil, neither sister nor their father, Solomon, has a moment’s rest. But when another tragedy occurs, it seems things will only get worse.
THE JUDGMENT is the second book in The Rose Trilogy by Beverly Lewis. I was looking forward to reading this book by my long time favorite Amish author and it didn’t disappoint.
I felt for Rose, her sister, Rose, and for Solomon, all three main characters in this book. I was also glad that Nick made a brief appearance in this book. I can’t wait for the third book in the series The Mercy, coming in September of this year. If you like Amish fiction you will want to read this book, beginning with the first book in the series, The Thorn. THE JUDGMENT doesn’t stand alone. $14.99. 330 pages.
