The River

Sisters Tilly and Ruth have lived apart from their Amish roots for years now. Both having left a past they'd rather not revisit, they really have no desire to return home. So when they get a call from their brother, asking them to come home for their parents anniversary party, they have a serious decision to make. Tilly, who has been in the Englisher world longer than her sister, immediately digs her heels in. But when Ruth gets wind that their father may be ailing she talks her sister into making the trip home. Their welcome home is a mixed reception. While some of the family is happy to see them, its clear others are not, especially for Tilly. So they are glad it will be a short trip. But when their fathers health takes a turn for the worse, the girls find themselves volunteering to stay longer. Even while their pasts are being dredged up and forcing them to face them. Now its up to them to return the way they came, or allow hope and healing to follow them home. I really enjoyed this book. I thought the story line was intriguing. I zipped right through this book with her ease of writing. I think anyone who enjoys amish or christian fiction would really enjoy this book. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review.
