Description

Product Description

Tessie Miller followed her heart, and now the unthinkable has happened. Will she find a reason for hope, in spite of her desperate plight?

From the Back Cover

Come home to Hickory Hollow, Pennsylvania--the beloved setting where Beverly Lewis''s celebrated Amish novels began--with new characters and new stories of drama, romance, and the ties that draw people together.

"Much of the credit [for the growth of Amish fiction] goes to Beverly Lewis, a Colorado author who gave birth to the genre in 1997 with The Shunning..."
--Associated Press


Of her Old Order parents'' five daughters, Tessie Miller is the last to marry. She has her heart set on Amishman Marcus King, but Tessie''s father opposes the match.

Impetuously, Tessie and Marcus elope to the English world, then return to Hickory Hollow to live as singles, trusting they''ll convince the Millers to give their love a chance over time. But when the unthinkable happens, Tessie faces the almost-certain censure of the People. Will she find a reason for hope in spite of her desperate plight?

"Vivid imagery captures the reader''s attention as Lewis masterfully tugs at their heart-strings." - RT Book Reviews
""Lewis'' latest is a thoughtful tale filled with pastoral imagery, dramatic irony, and gentle
foreshadowing that teases the story forward."- Booklist

h my goodness!!! This book was one of my favorites in the series. My only complaint was that there weren’t quite as many visits with Ella Mae as I like. I just adore that little old lady and I do wish I’d had a few more sips of tea with her this time.

I thought this story was a bit more unique than your humdrum Amish tale. It wasn’t a teen pregnancy story or even a very atypical forbidden romance. Nope, this story had twists and turns and situations that were more than meets the eye. There was depth to the story that is lacking in a lot of Amish fiction. So many other books seem to be the same old story over and over. This one was different.

About the Story:
Tessie Miller is madly in love with Marcus King. Her father has forbidden the union without any explanation whatsoever.

So, Tessie and Marcus elope to the English world and then they return to Hickory Hollow. No one knows of their secret union…

How long can Marcus and Tessie keep this a secret? Then, the unthinkable happens. Tessie finds herself in serious trouble with the church and with her family.

Will she ever find forgiveness or will a simple mistake cost Tessie a lifetime of pain and regret? I have to say, when I read the term, “the unthinkable” in the synopsis? I honestly had very different thoughts about what was going to happen. I was surprised! I mean…I totally wasn’t suspecting what happened to have happened!

I know if you all have read the synopsis that you probably think you’ve got it all figured out but just give the book a chance. Your jaw will drop in that, “dun dun dun” moment and you’ll say, “Wait, what just happened?!”

I really enjoyed the latest book in the Home to Hickory Hollow series. In this latest book Tessie Ann Miller Has to discover that the consequences of her secret bring not only shame to herself but to her family as well. It is an in depth look at how the Amish faith works when someone breaks one of the laws of God. In the end Tessie Ann is forgiven by all when she confesses her secret to the Amish brethen. And she triumphs over the tragedy in her life. And becomes a stronger person. I loved the ending it was a happy one. I''m looking foward to another book from Beverly Lewis soon. I recommend this book to anyone that likes Beverly Lewis. I have read and enjoyed the whole Hickory Hollow Series.

I loved the previous books in the Home to Hickory Hollow series but this one fell flat for me. After seeing that Beverly Lewis has another two books coming out in 5 or 6 months, I have to wonder if she is writing and publishing too fast. I would rather wait a year for a quality read then read disappointing books like this every 3 months. All this book needs is more time spent editing and fine-tuning. Churning out a new book every 3 months is not enough time to write a good book.

All of Beverly Lewis'' books get five stars. She is a wonderful storyteller and author. My husband and I first visited Lancaster County three months after we were married on Valentine''s Day in 1981. We fell in love with the area and the Amish way of life and returned as often as we could. It was our dream to eventually live here, and we bought a townhouse in Leola in Aug. 2001, intending it to be our retirement home when the time came. We commuted here every weekend for two years from our home in Mt. Airy, MD. We decided not to wait until retirement, so my husband found a job here, and we moved here permanently in Oct. 2003. We know the area extensively, especially the farmlands, so when Ms. Lewis intertwines descriptions of this area in her books, we know exactly what and where to which she is referring. I highly recommend Beverly Lewis'' books. I always eagerly anticipate her new books.

I love Beverly Lewis & her books in a series. I love the good ending. I also enjoy her characters and the family ties. I like that the dad was not turned in to a strict old order Amish man.
It did seem though that the relationship of Tessie & Jacob went too fast, it seemed rushed.
It did not give the reader a belief that Jacob was such a perfect young man that he just accepted Tessie no matter what her back ground had been. I just felt that more time should have been given for Jacob to express some kind of concern he & or his family could have had.
All in I love Beverly Lewis books.
