The Proving by Beverly Lewis - A Book Review

The Proving

by Beverly Lewis

A Lesson in Forgiveness

When Mandy Dienner left her Amish roots in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, she wasn’t sure when or if she would ever go back.  But her mother’s unexpected death and the surprise inheritance of her mother’s bread and breakfast inn, called her home and challenged her to run the inn for a year before it would really be legally hers.   

A long ago tiff with her twin sister, Arie Mae, over a man whom Arie eventually married seemed too much to overcome, along with the Mandy’s lack of skills needed to run a B & B.  Could she really keep the success of the most popular inn in Lancaster County going?  How could she fit into the Amish environment which she had abandoned five years before?  Would she be accepted?

Mandy’s year at the Butterfly Meadows Amish Inn brought her life into focus, as she learned what forgiveness and grace could bring to her.  New friends, family, and church came together to show her what was really important. 
This is a typical Beverly Lewis story, full of love and faith inside the Amish culture.
I only wanted Mandy's mother's recipes to be included at the end of the book!

This book was provided to me by Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.
