Excellent reading for a little quiet time! Feb 5, 2008
I've read Beverly Lewis' Abram's Daughters series, so when I picked this book up at my local Borders I already knew I would find the writing well worth my time. I first loved the fact that I was getting all 3 of the series in one book, which meant no suspenseful waiting for a new release. With a few Lancaster County genealogical connections on my paternal grandmother's side of the family, these stories seem to give me a sense of how things must have been for some of my ancestors...even though this book is written in modern times. I love that the story's protagonist grew up plain and let us go into the barn's hayloft, on an island, and run barefoot with her. I also love the fact that Beverly Lewis can let us in on the inner struggle Katie Lapp has between wanting to be plain and more modern (or English). I think it's a struggle any Christian actually goes through (to be in this world, but not of it) if they are searching for what God would want for their lives. Even as Katherine Mayfield that struggle still continues for her. This series also has a great love story in it and is well worth the journey. As a Christian, I enjoy reading a story that includes the spiritual side of life and doesn't leave that part out. So, if you enjoy a good love story, a spiritual struggle of the heart, and just a good read, then you'll love the Heritage of Lancaster County series for your next appointed quiet time!

Beverly is a fantastic writer and so infomative of the Amish. So easy to read and once you start you don't want to put them down.
Not our favorite Beverly Lewis book Feb 23, 2007
My husband and I got hooked on Beverly Lewis's excellent writing in the Annie's People and Abram's Daughters series. She's truly a master of suspense and intrigue in these books. I passed them on to my father, who loved them too. We've often visited Lancaster County and especially enjoyed this chance to "go inside" the lovely farmhouses we've admired from outside. However, we just finished Heritage of Lancaster County and both of us were very disappointed in it. The main characters don't seem to have an ounce of common sense and the plot is bit of a stretch. Katie (Katherine) comes off as stupid and selfish. Compared with Annie of Annie's People and Leah of Abram's Daughters, this heroine is a flop!
I believe this book was written earlier than the other two, which may account for the difference. We're glad we read the others first - they are wonderful!
Awesome book!! Feb 14, 2007
Beverly Lewis has got to be my favorite author these days. I thoroughly enjoyed this book series (which included all 3 novels in one large edition). I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves Christian fiction - and anyone who loves to read about the Amish. Excellent series - can't wait to read more!!
