Sent from Michigan to Pennsylvania following the tragic death of her Amish parents, Lena Rose Schwartz grieves her loss and the separation from her nine siblings. Beside the fact that Lena has never been so far from home, she hasn't met the family she will now be living with. But worse than that is having to live apart from her close-knit brothers and sisters. How will they manage without her to care for them--especially six-year-old Chris? And will her new beau, Hans Bontrager, continue to court her despite the many miles between them? Yet even as Lena Rose holds on to hope for a reunion with those she loves most, she discovers that Lancaster holds charms of its own. Is she willing to open her heart to new possibilities?… (més)

Good story, sadness at the beginning with an very good ending
Another outstanding book by Lewis ( )
  DanJlaf | May 13, 2021 |
The Road Home was my first Beverly Lewis book. So I don’t have anything to compare it to. I think if you are a fan, you will like this book. I like the way her character development, but found the story dragging a little in the beginning. The story picked up in the middle and was an nice easy read. The story was sweet, and full of innocence, love and family. When Lena Rose’s when her parents unexpectedly died, she was separated from her siblings. She had to learn to cope with not being able to help them and find ways to bide her time until she could come home at last. You can’t help but hope things turn out well. I liked the ending with its little twist. ( )

Sometimes location is a big draw for a book. I will read anything Beverly Lewis writes, but I was tickled pink to see that the novel starts out in Centerville, MI!! This is a place not far from me, and I looked for nuggets of familiarity. I was happy to see that the covered bridge, unusual for this area, merits a mention.

I was also happy to see the inclusion of the “Blizzard of ‘78.” Possibly mistimed to fit the story, the blizzard is infamous around these parts for its ferocity and unusual intensity, even here in Michigan.

Lewis has a warm, welcoming writing style that pulls the reader into the story and makes her/him feel part of the family or community described.

It can be easy to adopt the attitudes of those around you. Indeed, immersed in the world of Lena and her family, I first felt love; then heart-wrenching sadness; a strong yearning for loved ones, and desperation borne of that love.

I loved the way that Lena decides, miserable as she is, to “bloom where she is planted.” She has such a positive effect on others around her, even though her heart is breaking inside.

In her own gentle way, Lewis weaves her faith message seamlessly throughout the book. It never seems forced, only natural, presented in small, tasteful bites.
...”Lena wondered if she ought to pray about something so minor. Cousin Mimi likely would. She talks to God about practically everything...”

If you like Christian Amish stories recounted by one of the best, pick up your own copy of Beverly Lewis’s The Road Home. I received a complimentary copy from the publisher and NetGalley. This in no way affected my opinions, given voluntarily, for which I am entirely responsible. Also, I am not related to the author. ( )

I found it interesting to see how Lena Rose was able to work through her grief of not only losing her parents, but being separated from the rest of her family. I am unsure how I would feel about having to move away and begin a new life and have so many changes all at once. I enjoyed reading the book and liked how Lena Rose was able to continue trusting and let thing work out the way they needed to , not necessarily the way she wanted them to.
I received a copy of the book from the publisher, the review is my own. ( )
