I lvoed the book. It was so interesting reading about Amish customs and lifestyle. The book capivated my attention and it was hard to put down. The characters came to life and so did thir feelings.

Beverly Lewis does not disappoint with this first installment in the Abram's Daughters series. Although it is similar to other writers of this type of Christian fiction, Beverly Lewis' books are just a cut above the rest. I enjoyed this book as well as the rest of the series very much. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764223305, Paperback)

Book 1 of Abram's Daughters series from bestselling author Beverly Lewis. Years of secrecy bind the tiny community of Gobbler's Knob together more than the present inhabitants know, and the Plain folk who farm the land rarely interact with the fancy locals. So when Sadie is beguiled by a dark-haired English boy, it is Sadie's younger sister, Leah, who suffers from her sister's shameful loss of innocence. And what of Leah's sweetheart, Jonas Mast, sent to Ohio under the Bishop's command? Drawn into an incomprehensible pact with her older sister, Leah finds her dreams spinning out of control, even as she clings desperately to the promises of God. The Covenant begins a powerful Lancaster portrait of the power of family and the miracle of hope.
