Book 12 and 13 in 2018.
“The Prodigal” and “The Revelation” by Beverly Lewis
Ok, so I tried to read three other books before going back to finish the “Abram’s Daughters” series. I made it sixty to hundred pages in each book, until I decided for each one, I just didn’t care to finish any of them. Ha. I have kinda been in a reading funk. Anyway, oh, Amish drama. I know in previous posts I carried on how much I hated these books. I guess it could be more like a love/hate thing.
In these two books years have gone by, and we are now in the 1960’s. Leah is still raising her dear mama’s children, but Lydiann and Abe are now sixteen and thirteen. Abram has finally given in to his feelings for his deceased wife’s sister Lizzie, and has married her. Lydiann is courting Jake Mast, (Leah’s Jonas’ youngest brother) which is a scandal in itself because the Mast family has shunned the Ebersol’s since they thought it was Leah’s fault that Jonas was shunned. Even more of a scandal is the fact that we find out (follow closely) that Jake is actually Sadie’s baby, that we thought died , but Dr Schwartz switched out Jake’s Mom’s deceased twin body with his! Whew. So actually Jake Mast is Lydiann’s nephew. Drama ensues. More drama. Heartache. Death. Tragedy. (I am paraphrasing for you) Then Jonas, Leah’s long lost love, discovers Leah has never married, and returns to pursue her! Yes!! Finally, that was all I was really waiting for. Even with all the spoilers I have given you, I feel like I cannot give away the ending of this series. Sorry.
I think I could of read book one, then the last two chapters of book five, and been completely satisfied. But, I of course would not of been able to ride the emotional, and ridiculously long, roller coaster this series offers it’s readers. Kudos to you if you can make it through. Overall afterthought, I regret nothing.
