Product Description

From the Back Cover

The powerful family saga of four Amish sisters whose way of life and faith in God are as enduring as Lancaster's signature horse and buggy. Or so it seems...

Leah Ebersol has no choice but to believe the worst. Her older sister, Sadie, and Leah's beloved Jonas have betrayed her. Now, two years later, Leah finds herself on the verge of accepting another courting invitation. But when tragedy befalls the Ebersols, Leah must again choose between her own happiness and her family.

Format: Paperback
It has been two years since Leah Ebersol heard the shocking news that her true love and beau, Jonas Mast, had married her wayward and shunned sister, Sadie. Leah has finally found peace and forgiveness toward both Jonas and Sadie, and a romance blooms between Leah and the Smithy's son, Gid. But tragedy strikes the Ebersol family and Leah's life takes a dramatic turn. She is standing in her kitchen one afternoon and looks out the window and sees a face she hasn't seen for years! And once again, life for Leah Ebersol begins to change. Add this one to your list of MUST READ!

I for one wasn't all that frustrated with the lack of "meat" in the story. That might be your impression if you are focused on the Jonas-Sadie-Leah love triangle, because that was a central plot in the previous two books. This book focuses more on the Schwartz family, Abram, Ida, and their twin daughters; as well as Leah's coping in the absence of her sister and old beau. Only toward the end does it return to focus on the original plot. This is a detour from the previous books, but it was a welcome detour for me, because I found the other members of Abram's family to be just as fascinating. The focus on different characters allows for new insights into the world of Lancaster County. "Sacrifice" (more than "Covenant" of "Betrayal") touches on several issues that make the Amish controversial: excessive legalism, the "hex doctors", and the question of salvation. Lewis handles these issues honestly, without getting either overly defensive or judgmental of the Amish people. I'm not giving this book 5 stars because it doesn't really stand on its own as a story. It is a collection of different, related stories that could have used an overriding theme to tie them all together. I don't even know exactly what "The Sacrifice" refers to, but it is still a worthy addition to the series. October will be a long wait, but if the next installment is anything like the previous ones, it will be worth it. I think I could predict what will happen to Leah in the next book (once you get to the end, you'll know what I'm talking about) but the cast of characters is so endearing and true-to-life, I would enjoy it even if it did turn out to be predictable. Anyway, Beverly Lewis has surprised me already, and I wouldn't put it past her to do it again.

I am a huge fan of Beverly Lewis's books, but was just about to lay this one aside when it FINALLY started to get interesting and then - wow!
Leah is the main character and her value and worth are never questioned, especially with the decisions she is called to make. The twins Hannah and Mary Ruth are young ladies now, but their hearts pull them in different directions. Sadie, the shunned oldest daughter is ever in the background until the last few pages. Somehow I feel we have not heard the last of her first, huge sinful encounter which resulted in her banning. I was pleased to see the doctor's family more fully integrated into this book.
Abram and his wife have raised some different children with sharp minds and this book shows the reader the apparent differences and outcomes. The Amish community is beginning to lose some of their young people to the more liberal Mennonites, much to the chagrin of Dat and the bishop. Speaking of Dat, he is portrayed as stubborn, spiteful, and finally softening.
Leah has my admiration and is definitely the star of this book. Her life and relationship to some special little people will pull at your heartstrings.
This book is chock full of surprises and intrigue and Beverly Lewis has plenty to draw from when she releases book 4, "The Prodigal" in October, 2004. I am very excited to order it in advance.
If the whole book had been like the last fourth of the book then it would have been 5+ stars. If just half the book had been, it would have gotten 4. However, this time Lewis took entirely too long to get to the meat and heart of the book, hence, 3 stars.

This book is full of more suprises than you can count! The third book of "Abram's daughters" is yet another well researched, well written book. The great tragedy they refer to in the synopsis is actually the second great tragedy to occur within it's pages, and both are so heart-wrenching it's advisable to keep a box of tissues nearby. I finished it in about 18 hours, and that includes a good nights sleep in there. I just couldn't wait to find out what happens next!
I wonder which sacrifice the title refers to--it could be argued between two of them, one stemming from each tragedy mentioned before. I don't want to give away the plot, it is well worth reading, and far too good to be summed up in a few sentances.
I am waiting on the edge of my seat for #4 The Prodigal to come out in October. Even its very title fills me with hope for a happy ending at long last for our "ever faithful Leah."

Format: Paperback
When reading "The Sacrifice" I was struck by how easy it was to rekindle my relationship with the Ebersol family. Ms. Lewis presents her charaters fully and truthfully. Leah's love of family and sense of duty,inspite of personal feelings, inspire. Sadie's journey holds a life lesson. The twins show that even in the Plain community there is teen-age angst, peer pressure and realization that the furtue is not always so cut and dry. The struggle of Abram and Ida to hold together their family, despie the adult pressures of their life in the Plain community, will touch any parent. Remove the guies of the plain lifestyle, and you will see your own family and take comfort that there is a plan, even if we are not aware of what it is. This is a great read that anyone of any age or background will enjoy. I am looking forward to Ms. Lewis's next novel, "The Prodigal" due out in October 2004.
