Overview
Readers Eagerly Await the Latest from Beverly Lewis, the #1 Name in Amish Fiction

With her love for all things old-fashioned, Jennifer Burns has often been told she's an "old soul," but no one is prepared for the young woman's decision to set aside her modern life in favor of the Old Order Amish world. Yet Jenny does exactly that, adopting Plain dress and settling in with Samuel and Rebecca Lapp while she works as a mother's helper for the bishop's wife--a far cry from her former job as an x-ray technician.

The people of Hickory Hollow are curious about the beautiful young seeker among them, one handsome Amishman in particular. But he is not the only man vying for Jenny's affections, and Jenny faces many challenges in the Proving time the brethren have set for her...challenges of the heart, as well as the spirit.

Will Jenny's secrets keep her from the peace she longs for? Or will they lead the way home?

Reviews - What do customers think about Secret Keeper (Home To Hickory Hollow V4)?

A DIFFERENT KIND OF AMISH STORY!  Nov 8, 2013
This is the first book in this series I have read, but the story didn’t leave me missing anything from the previous books. Beverly Lewis is on my favorite authors list. I have never read one of her books I didn’t enjoy.
The story line was very different. While so many stories involve Amish who want to leave the life and become “Englishers”, this one is about an “Englisher” that to wanted to leave the world and become Amish!
From the time she was young, Jenny Burns had been drawn to the Amish faith. Everything about them and their way of life deeply touched her. The wealthy, materialistic, fast paced life of Jenny’s family always left her at odds with them and not fitting in. This made her long for the simple life even more.
After corresponding for many years with an Amish friend, Marnie, she met on vacation; she feels she is ready to make the move. She saves her money, sells her earthly possessions, and quits her job. Marnie arranges for her aunt and uncle, the Lapps, to welcome her into their home and help her during her year of “Proving”.
Being a “seeker”, someone from outside desiring to become a church member, the community meets her with distrust or open arms, there doesn’t seem to be a happy medium. Jenny struggles to adapt, learning the language and all the skills she must have to be a true Amish woman. While she is very happy, she finds the way of life more difficult than she thought, but most of all her image of the Amish people being “perfect” is shattered. She finds they are just as human as she is.
Accidentally she stumbles on a secret of another’s that she would have to reveal when she joined the church or she would not be holding true to the Ordnung. That combined with her homesickness for her family, whom she never thought she’d miss nor would miss her, makes her begin to question if she can stay. She had grown to love the people and one young man in particular. What should she do? The ending has an unexpected twist!
I always enjoy the details about daily Amish life but this book gave me something extra. It looked not only into the hearts and minds of the Amish characters but also through the eyes someone outside of the faith seeing it from the inside for the first time. I look forward to reading the other books in this series.
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255




 
The Secret Keeper by Beverly Lewis  Sep 18, 2013
If you think that you've grown weary of Amish fiction you should give it one more try and pick up the Home to Hickory Hollow series by Beverly Lewis. I've been reading Beverly's work from the beginning and I am thrilled with this new series and particularly this fourth book.

This series explores different aspects of the Amish life than what is typically covered in a book of this genre. The main character, Jenny Burns, is a seeker from the English world and is determined to become a devout Amishwoman. I've often wondered what it would entail for someone to become an Amish convert. The story is detailed about the requirements and the hardships someone would face as they try to assimilate to this new lifestyle. I enjoyed the honest way Jenny's struggles were portrayed and also the realistic way the brethren struggled to accept her.

While this is considered a stand-alone novel, several of the characters from previous books in the series make appearances. We are treated to more of the Wise Woman's compassionate yet feisty opinions of the goings on around her. Katie and Dan are still under the Bann but that hasn't stopped them from reaching out to the ones they love the most.

As I said earlier I think this is Beverly's best work yet. The series just continues to surprise me with the different situations that have been introduced. Beverly has definitely earned the status of queen of Amish fiction. I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I have.

I received a book to facilitate this review.
