The Telling...Review

About the book:
Grace Byler leaves Bird-in Hand in a fancy car to search for her mother in Ohio. But what if Lettie Byler doesn't wish to be found? Meanwhile, Lettie continues her private quest to find the missing piece of her life. As clues take her from state to state, she is increasingly torn between the family she has left behind and the yearning for her long-lost child. Struggling to come to terms with a grave medical diagnosis, Heather Nelson is determined to forgo traditional medicine-to her father's chagrin-in hopes of finding answers and healing in Amish country. But first, she offers to drive her Amish friend, Grace Byler, to Ohio. Will mother and daughter, and one seriously ill graduate student, find the answers they long for? Or will "the telling" cause them all further pain?

The third and final book in the Seasons of Grace series. Like the previous two, this one picks up right at the end of the second book. Grace searches for her mother as Lettie searches for the child she gave up for adoption and Heather searches for her own answers. When Lettie returns home from her trip empty-handed, she must confess her past to her husband Judah and her church, a telling that could ruin her life forever, but one she must fulfill in order to heal.

As answers do finally come for everyone, hearts and relationships are healed.

I enjoy Beverly Lewis and I really liked this series. It was easy in the second book to see where things were going, and those suspicions were confirmed early in this book for me. But, I wouldn't call it completely predictable. It was an enjoyable novel and one I read in an afternoon. Easily recommended, especially for those who like Amish-themed stories, and certainly Beverly Lewis fans.

Thanks to my local library for having a copy I could borrow.  You can purchase your own copy here.
