Publisher's Summary

The Secret by New York Times best-selling author Beverly Lewis, is a compelling portrait of an Amish family's struggle to overcome the effects of a baffling secret. Soon-to-be-engaged Grace Byler is perplexed by her mom's nocturnal weeping and wandering - and her dad's refusal to discuss what's wrong. But when her mom runs off, Grace puts her own life on hold to pick up the pieces her mother left behind.


What the Critics Say

"Two young women, Amish Grace Byler and graduate student Heather Nelson, stand as counterpoints in parallel plots involving two secrets. Grace's mother is troubled; Heather, whose mother has died of cancer, tells no one in her circle of her own diagnosis of terminal illness, which drives her to Pennsylvania Amish country in search of healing. Grace's mother makes a decision that painfully complicates the action and drives it forward. Grace, her family and friends and the Amish milieu are drawn with characteristically ample detail, right down to jars of preserves set out on the tables at many bountiful Amish meals. Lots of powerful emotions go characteristically unspoken in this reticent culture, though the reader won't miss them." (Publishers Weekly)
"No one does Amish-based inspirationals better than Lewis." (Booklist)

Enjoy all of Beverly's books

I enjoy all the books that Beverly Lewis has written. I am intrigued with the Amish stories. This series is one that you must listen to all three books to find out the ending. If you want a wholesome, clean series, this is the one for you. Take time to share these with the young people in your home.

Not my favorite Amish/Lewis story

Reader had strong articulation, but her little girl voice distracted throughout. Slow story line. It felt like she was drawing it out to have enough for a series. Overall, pleasant...but I wouldn't buy again if I had it to do over.
