I found this to be a good character story that I breezed through quickly. I am glad I waited till all books were available before I started reading. That way I could finish within a brief period of time and not have to sit on pins and needles wondering what next. The characters are realistic and and the events are realistic. Of course there are little things that seem less believable although when you know some things about the Amish being accepting of the Lord's Will and plan in their life, it is more understandable.

This story has a climatic ending that made me want for more. I am sincerely thankful that Ms. Lewis writes series, because sometimes a writer can get you so caught up in the characters and their world that I hate to leave it. It was an enjoyable book from start to finish. I was skeptical at first, being afraid that reading a book about Amish life would not relate to me at all, but Lewis with her writing style is able to transfer feelings and emotions that transcends cultures. I deeply connected with the parents, because like them, I, too, worried about choices that my adult children are making.
The main story was well written and very sweet with enough mystery to keep you engaged. Great reading if you want something that will make you feel good and encourage you. Of course this is book 2 of a Trilogy so I would strongly advice to buy book 1 "The Thorn" before engaging in this one. I was not paid to write or read this book. Beverly Lewis is one of the best Authors of Amish Fiction. I have all her books. This latest book, The Judgement, was an easy read in one long afternoon.
The characters and their lives become part of you when you read a Beverly Lewis book. However, I found this book will absolutely require you get the third book of the series. There were so many unresolved issues and tormented lives by the time I reached the last page that I was left hanging in limbo. It left me sad and yes, I have pre-ordered the last of the series.

Disagreements and church splits can be disillusioning, both to those within our churches and to seekers.
Some want to relax church standards in order to be more relevant to the surrounding culture. Others rigidly adhere to traditional lines. Both have strong arguments to back up their views. Who is right? Many of us have wondered at times, Is church life, as I am experiencing it, really what God had in mind? How can ongoing friction accomplish God's plan? Some have decided it's not worth it and have checked out, thinking it easier to worship at home than to deal with the personalities and opinions in the larger church.
Others keep attending church but are constantly on the lookout for something else—something a little more compatible with their view of church. In Church Matters , Gary Miller compares the current state of the church with God's original vision as seen in the book of Acts. His examination of God's purpose for your congregation is a thought-provoking challenge to complacency and drift, and to the conflicts and struggles that keep us from reaching others with the Gospel.

That first evening, Andrea's thoughts churned as she prepared for bed. If only she had a place to plant flowers, she would be content.
