The Guardian (Home to Hickory Hollow Book #3) by [Lewis, Beverly]


The Guardian (Home to Hickory Hollow Book #3) 


From Amazon:

Must-Have Amish Fiction from #1 Bestselling Author Beverly Lewis

When schoolteacher Jodi Winfield goes for a morning run, the last thing she expects is to find a disheveled little girl all alone on the side of the Pennsylvania road, clad only in her undergarments, her chubby cheeks streaked with tears. Jodi takes the preschooler home with her, intending to find out where she belongs. But Jodi is mystified when no one seems to know of a missing child, and the girl herself is no help, since she can't speak a word of English. It's as if the child appeared out of nowhere.

As the days pass, Jodi becomes increasingly attached to the mysterious girl, yet she is no closer to learning her identity. Then an unexpected opportunity brings Jodi to Hickory Hollow--and into the cloistered world of the Lancaster Old Order Amish. Might the answers lie there?


My Thoughts:

This book had all I needed to want to never put it down, suspense and romance!  Then in the middle of it it all there is the peace and tranquility of Hickory Hollow.  The countryside was so quiet that I could hear the clippity clop of the horse buggies on the lane through the pages.  

I fell in love with the both of the characters Jodi and Maryanna.  They both were strong willed but were willing to listen to instruction and guidance.   Each one going through a different struggle but making it through with the help of God.
Jodi especially spoke to my heart with her willingness to listen and respect the Amish way of life.  

A wonderful, wonderful book!
