Publisher's Summary

Following such best sellers as The Shunning and The Postcard, Beverly Lewis's explosive new novel, The Covenant, unveils the layers of deeply rooted Amish tradition as seen through the eyes of Leah and Sadie Ebersol, two courting-age sisters.

The Amish community of Gobbler's Knob holds everything Leah has ever desired until a pact with her older sister, lured by the outside world, leaves her clinging to God's promises.

Critic Reviews

"Lewis is a master of eliciting empathy for characters caught in troubles of their own making. The Amish community with all of its intricacies is vibrantly drawn (Lewis grew up in Pennsylvania Dutch country), and the tension between it and the encroaching English world is palpable." (Library Journal)

Lovely yet heart wrenching story

Aimee Lilly does a superb job of bringing this book to life, pronouncing the speech of the old order Amish so well, as she reads another story written in the hand of Beverly Lewis. This one has me on the edge of my seat, so to speak. Unlike watching a mystery show on TV, I can totally relax as I lie down, eyes closed, allowing the author to paint scene after scene of her books. I'm off to buy book two as this tale is far from over. So many loose ends to tie. My advice? Enjoy!
