Item description for Reckoning (Heritage Lancaster V3) (Repack) by Beverly Lewis...

Katherine Mayfield, the new Mistress of Mayfield Manor, always dreamed of a fancy "English" life. But as the seasons pass, she finds herself grieving the loss of her Amish family and dearest friend, Mary Stolzfus. Shunned from the Plain life she once knew, Katherine finds solace in volunteer work with hospice patients--a labor of love she hopes will bring honor to the memory of her birth mother.

Unknown to Katherine, her long-lost love, Daniel Fisher, is desperate to locate his "Sweetheart girl," only to be frustrated at nearly every turn. Meanwhile, she delights in the modern world--once forbidden--cherishing the attention of Justin Wirth, her handsome suitor.

Her childhood entwined with Daniel's, yet her present life far removed from Lancaster County, Katherine longs for the peace that reigned in her mother's heart. And once again, she is compelled to face the heritage of her past.

Publishers Description
Unknown to Katie, her long-lost love seeks her even as she has another interest. Yet she yearns for peace, which requires facing her plain heritage.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reckoning (Heritage Lancaster V3) (Repack)?

A Good Ending  Apr 4, 2010
The Reckoning is the third book in Beverly Lewis' Heritage of Lancaster County series. While I loved the first book, and abhorred the second, I have mixed feelings about the third.

The story starts with Katherine becoming accustomed to life at the mansion after her biological mother's death. Just as she is settling in and getting used to things, Daniel, an old boyfriend whom she thought dead shows up on her doorstep begging forgiveness. Its a little more than Katherine can handle and she send him away.

Meanwhile, to fill her time she dates the charming painter Justin and volunteers at a hospice where she makes friends with a young boy dying from terminal cancer. She also hosts a quilting class in her home with several friends and also some newer friends, local amish people.

Something is missing from her life though and as the ban on her shunning is partially lifted she returns home to talk with her family and friends and somewhat misses the Amish even though she has found a new religious relationship.

The ending came as quite a surprise for me. While I had a suspicion that it might end up the way it did, I never imagined the destination to be what it was. It was as if Lewis changed her mind literally between paragraphs to a different ending and followed through with it.

While I was pleased to see the development of characters improve in this novel over the second, I have some reservations about the novel. There seemed to be a quite open agenda throughout the entire novel, a theme if you will. While I realize Beverly Lewis' writings are technically classified as Christian fiction, this book was so blatant about its proselytizing it was almost off-putting. While I love reading about the Amish and their culture, the constant references to being saved by Jesus in the Mennonite and regular Christian churches Catherine attends was heavy handed.

Lewis still offers a lot of detail in her writing and a nice history of the Amish. While most of it is written in the 3rd person, the prologue and epilogue are written through Katherine's eyes. It brings a nice change and divide in the novel.

Splendid  Mar 12, 2010
This was a wonderful book. I read it 1st since I did not know it was 3rd of a series.I loved the book enough to order all 3 in the series and re-read the #3 book. Excellent author. Outstanding book
 
good reading  Jan 23, 2010
I enjoyed the Reckoning, but not as much as I thought I would. It was a little slower than the Confession. I could still still the Lord working through Katherine's life. Best of all God got the glory in the end.
 
GIven as a gift  Jan 21, 2010
I don't know anything about this book. It was requested by someone and I gave it as a gift.
 
Great Book  Oct 16, 2009
The Reckoning was a great book. I could not wait to get to the end of the book.
Beverly Lewis is a great writer by keeping you interested all through the book.
There are things that happen that you don't expect to happen -- that is what keeps
the book so interesting.
