Product description

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-8-A quiet but desperate cry awakens Merry Hanson in the middle of the night-her friend Lissa is once again fleeing from physical abuse. Bruises and wounds brand the girl's flesh, but fear and grief embrace her heart. Merry searches for a way to help without destroying her loyalty to God-she is torn between hiding Lissa and disclosing the truth. Luckily, faith and prayer allow her to make wise decisions. She calls on her Amish friend Rachel for assistance, and Lissa's hideout in the Amish community gives her a new perspective on families and religion. She finally gains enough integrity and inner peace to confront the abusive situation at home head on; her mother comes to her support, and her father agrees to take on counseling for his problem. This book is a palatable example of Christian fiction. However, real-life endings are not always so tidy.?Bambi L. Dunn, Mustang High School, Oklahoma City, OK

From Booklist

Gr. 5^-8. Merry Hanson, heroine of the Summerhill Secrets series, harbors a runaway friend, Lissa, whose father is physically abusing her. When the police arrive, Merry does not turn Lissa in; instead, she confides in an Amish girlfriend, who agrees to hide Lissa in the Amish community. This serene, homespun way of life is a balm for Lissa's wounds, and seeing Lissa's healing and spiritual awakening is a catalyst for Merry's dealing with the death of her twin sister years before. Merry is an appealing, intelligent teenager, compassionate, direct, and unpretentious, and her insights about herself give her character authenticity. Her life comes full circle when she allows herself to grieve for her sister. Shelley Townsend-Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
