book review: the guardian by beverly lewis
an "englisher" finds a sweet girl all alone while jogging the back roads of lancaster county. the girl is hurt and unable to speak english.
this is one of beverly lewis' best novels in my opinion. it is current and up-to-date using iPhone, texting and words such as "nosh." but, more than any of that, i love how the author uses a more than scary situation and brings good out of it weaving very different peolple together. the characters come alive as they deal with grief, love, trust and life.
the third book in the "home to hickory hollow" collection is worth your time.
"Why me, God? she asked. What have you prepared for me to do here?
Although fractured, injured and imperfect, Jodi realized she was willing."
thanks to bethany house publishers for a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review!
