A Christy Award winner, New York Times best-selling author Beverly Lewis has garnered acclaim as the queen of Amish fiction. The Thorn begins her Rose Trilogy, the stirring saga of two Amish sisters on the fringes of the church—and the unforeseen discoveries that change their lives.
Rose Kauffman finds herself growing closer to the bishop’s foster son, despite the warnings of her older sister, who knows more than she should about falling for the wrong man.

I love Beverly Lewis books. They are all comparable.
When Hen's little girl did not chose to go with her daddy.
Yes indeed. I can hardley ever turn her books off in the middle.
Great to listen to when you can't grab a book to read.
It's just an awesome story.
The story and narrator were great. This is not a fast paced novel as it is about Amish life, so if that is what you are looking for then move on. The story has great characters and character development and is just a great, clean, story that grabbed me enough that I will be listening to the next one in the series.
I've listened to several of Beverly Lewis' books and I will again. I found Christina Moore's voice a little annoying. After a bit I got used to it, but if I stopped listening for a while and then came back, I would have to get used to it all over again.
Did I not just answer this question?
There were times where she would take long breaks. One time I actually checked my Ipod to see if it had died! I'm not sure that's her fault though. That probably falls on the producer.
yes. It was pretty much a lot of lead up to the very last chapter. Even though nothing much happened, I learned so much about the characters that now I have to find out how they end up.
I was very disappointed!!! This book is so boring I haven't been motivated enough to finish it! I felt like the plot could have gotten interesting, but NEVER did! It was like a bad soap opera, it never went anywhere.I know that there were other reviews that said this was a great read, so maybe I'm just not a fan of the amish setting.
I didn't like her male voices and you could tell when she must have taken a break and then started again, it was like her voice sounded completely different in the middle of a paragraph. So probably not.
