Book description: "Tilly and Ruth, two formerly Amish sisters, are plagued by unresolved relationships when they reluctantly return to Lancaster County for their parents' landmark wedding anniversary. Since departing their Plain upbringing, Tilly has married an Englisher, but Ruth remains single and hasn't entirely forgotten her failed courtship with her Amish beau.
Past meets present as Tilly and Ruth yearn for acceptance and redemption. Can they face the future in the light of a past they can't undo?"
My review: The beginning of The River did not flow very smoothly, but once I got into the book a little way the story line seemed to move along more easily. I think there were too many "voices" at the beginning and that caused things to be a bit disjointed. Once I got into the book I thoroughly enjoyed it. Beverly Lewis has a way of telling a story that makes the characters come alive. This is another great Amish fiction that is a bit out of the ordinary. The unusual plot makes for a great read! I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
