I have the series so I was happy when I came across The Betrayal. I wanted to continue reading about Sadie. I feel like I am right there inside the book(s). It's hard to put down once I start reading. It's better to read the series. However, the writer brings it up to speed so you aren't floundering trying to figure out who everyone is.
I love Amish Stories. I really enjoy reading Beverly Lewis.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Corrie D. Bird on May 18 2004

I came across this book and honestly the picture is what grabbed my attention. I picked up the book and starting reading the back cover. I have always been fascinated by the Amish and their culture so I decided to give the book a try. This book lived up to what I had hoped it would. Since I had never read any books by this author I was extremely pleased with the outcome. Beverly Lewis makes you feel as if you are part of the storyline (just as any great writer would) you become close with the characters and honetly feel for them as they go on their journey. I would recommend this book and any other books by Lewis.

I have always found the Amish world fascinating -- perhaps they give us an idea what the lives of our ancestors (who lived without modern conveniences) were like -- or perhaps it is simply because they are mysterious because they separate themselves so completely from the rest of society. This book provides some insight (and I don't know how accurate it is) into what it would be like to grow up Amish. The book is set in the post WWII period, but I don't know to what extent life has changed among the Amish, who seem timeless in many ways.
The plot is worthy of Jane Austen -- seemingly not much happens, and yet a great deal happens, particularly given that women in this culture have their choice of very little except whether they choose to remain within the community by being baptized and then who (among the Amish) they marry. The main character, Leah, plans to be baptized and then marry her sweetheart Jonah, despite the fact that her father would prefer she marry another young man he has in mind. The only thing really troubling her (besides her sweetheart's temporary absence -- he's off learning carpentry) is her sister's explosive secret, which she has promised to keep from their parents. How can she be baptized with such a troubled conscience -- concealing something so important. Is it right to keep her word or break it? Meanwhile, her sister is trying to come to terms with this secret herself, in her own interior struggle.
If I had any complaints, it would be that the pace of the book is slow -- perhaps as slow as the lives of the plain Amish compared to the fancy English around them, the difference between driving a horse and buggy compared to driving a car. Still, the book was quite compelling and I can hardly wait to read the next volume in the series.

I love Beverly Lewis' books. However, this series on Abram's daughters is amazing. Once again, Mrs. Lewis paints a wonderful world, very much like our own, through her beautiful words. If you look for drama, suspence, betrayal and hidden secrets, this series must be your next and last stop. Read them! You won't be disappointed!

Format: Paperback
"The Betrayal" picks up right where "The Covenant" left off and has all the characters I fell in love with in the first book. This book with all the turmoil and heartache made me long to find out what Leah would do on the next page. Leah is girl who struggles between what is expected, and what is desired. I can relate to Leah's struggle and yet I am completely fascinated by the strange customs of a 1947 Amish community. I was thankful for the bad weather the weekend I bought this book so I could spend the day reading the entire book. "The Betrayal" answers many of the questions at the end of "The Covenant" and leaves you with new questions. I can't wait for the next book to see where Mrs. Lewis takes Leah, Sadie, Hannah, and Mary. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interesting in romance, passion or suspense.

Format: Paperback
Bestselling author Beverly Lewis continues to till the rich Lancaster County soil in her latest book, THE BETRAYAL. Set in the fictional Amish community of Gobbler's Knob circa 1947, this is the second installment in the "Abram's Daughters" series and continues the story of the Amish Ebersol sisters --- Sadie, Leah, and twins Mary Ruth and Hannah. The stories of these courting-age girls are woven together, but Leah's narrative takes center stage through the course of this installment.
As the story opens, Sadie and Leah are both dealing with the continued fallout of Sadie's irresponsible behavior during "rumschpringe," a period of time in which young Amish people are given the freedom to explore the outside world to determine whether or not they want to be baptized and commit their lives to the "Plain" way of life. Sadie's downward spiral is chronicled in THE COVENANT, and it's clear her descent is not complete, as anger and sadness eat away at her in THE BETRAYAL.
"After their private talk Sadie had gone inside and created a fuss, all because Mamma had suggested Sadie take herself upstairs and lie down. 'You look so hot in the face,' Mamma had said sweetly, offering a concerned smile, no doubt noticing Sadie's swollen eyes.
'I'm all right, really,' Sadie replied.
'Just thought a rest might do you good.'
Then Sadie burst out crying. 'I'll go out to the pasture if you say to --- coax all the cows home for milking --- do Leah's chores, but I won't be resting!'
Both Hannah and Mamma gasped, though Mamma the louder. 'Such foolish words, Sadie dear. Time you behaved like a baptized church member ... and bite your tongue.'
Sadie brushed her tears away, standing there silent now.
'You best go to your room,' Mamma insisted.
