The Proving by Beverly Lewis

The Proving by Beverly Lewis

This Book was supplied to me by Harvest House Publishers for a review in return.

Book Description

Amanda Dienner hasn’t seen her Old Order family in five years when she receives word that her mother has passed away and left her Lancaster County’s most popular Amish bed-and-breakfast. Now an Englisher, Mandy is shocked: Her twin sister should have been the obvious choice! What’s more, the inheritance comes with a catch: The farmhouse inn will only truly be hers if she is able to successfully run it for twelve consecutive months.

Mandy accepts the challenge even though it means returning to Gordonville and the painful memories she left behind at eighteen. Still, she’s determined to prove she is more than capable of running the bed-and-breakfast, no matter that its loyal clientele are expecting an Amish hostess!

The inn isn’t Mandy’s sole test, however. Rubbing shoulders with her married twin sister reopens wounds that Mandy isn’t ready to forgive. And an Englisher guest with a difficult past of her own just complicates matters.

Can Mandy fulfill the terms of her inheritance? Or will this year in Amish country prove a dreadful mistake?

My Review

This book is one of the best books I have read by Beverly Lewis.  I love reading about the Amish and this book was so good that I would suggest people who love Amish as much as I do should read it.

The book is about Mandy Dienner and her family.  It starts out that Mandy Dienner has been gone from being an Amish for 5 years.  She is in Kansas when she receives word that her mother has passed away.  She has left the Bed and Breakfast Inn in Gordonville, Pennsylvania.  The inn is hers with stipulations.  So, she loads up and heads for Gordonville.  But, when she arrives and takes over the Inn, the Amish People have doubts.  She fires her sister right off and some of the other people don’t want to work for her.  She does it all herself until she has some of her tenants decide to help her out.

As the book goes on, Mandy falls for one of the hands that her mother hires, Karl.  He has the cutest little boy.  I say that because I bet he is a doll.  As the book goes on, she hires Trina as a cook and Trina falls for on of the guests and she eventually leaves to go to Maryland.

I am not going to say anything else about the book or I will ruin it for you.  I would suggest this book to my family and friends.  Thank you, Beverly Lewis for giving us such a GREAT book to read and give a review.  I just wish it would go on and on.  Thank you Harvest House for giving us such a GREAT book.
