Adam Beachy's past haunts him, with abandonment always lurking beneath the surface of his thoughts. Upon the sudden deaths of his sister and her husband Adam is faced with the responsibilities of raising his three nieces. Leah Mast has reached a time in her life that marriage seems only a distant dream. Her gift of reflexology is one of her joys in life, as she helps members of her community find relief from their ailments. Adam sees her gift as hocus pocus, creating a bone of contention between them. In spite of their differences Leah agrees to care for Adam's nieces while he tends to his hardware business.
The second in The Prairie State Friends series, The Gift captured my attention with its detailed and heart-wrenching events. Developments throughout this poignant story evoke emotions of considerable proportions. Credible events create a realistic portrayal of humanity. I was captivated and impassioned throughout this impressive novel of overcoming significant obstacles in life's pathways.
The author possesses a wealth of knowledge of the Amish community, and is a master at creating inspiring plots and engaging characters. The Gift is a impressive depiction of life and the impact that profound circumstances places on those illustrated throughout this remarkable story of tolerance, forgiveness and faith. I highly recommend The Gift and its prequel, The Decision. This series is an unforgettable testament to the author's expertise.
