It’s no secret that Beverly Lewis is arguably the best-known author in the Amish fiction genre. And when she gives her readers such a sweet, gentle novel as her newest release, The Photograph, it’s not difficult to see why.
With a graceful storyline set at a relaxed pace, The Photograph introduces us to a sweet new friend, Eva Esch, and the close-knit Amish community she calls home. Pained after losing both her father and her mother, Eva’s tender heart is put to an even further test when her sister secretly leaves The People – for extremely foolish reasons – to join the English way of life.
For those who enjoy a mellow novel with a protagonist that you truly care about, and picture-perfect ending, The Photograph is for you. It is an easy read for a sunny afternoon, and will touch your heart with the gentleness and sweetness of learning to trust in the Lord, healing from past pain, and, as Eva would say, waiting for love that truly “makes your heart sing”.
