Tilly has since married and is the mother of identical twin girls. But Ruth remains single, still smarting from a failed courtship with her first beau. When she sees Will Kauffman again, old feelings resurface, leaving her to ponder anew how things might be different had she stayed in Lancaster County.
Meanwhile, Tilly is faced with a life-altering discover that calls everything she knows into question. As past meets present, Tilly and Ruth struggle to find redemption and embrace acceptance. Can they face the future in the light of a past they can't undo.

    I really enjoyed reading The River by Beverly Lewis. I thought the story was well written and quite interesting. I found myself wanting to learn more about the obscure history of the Lantz family. Why did two of their daughters give up being Amish to enter the outside world of the English? Beverly Lewis has done a great job drawing in her reader and keeping the reader's interest until the last page. I'd definitely recommend this one!

    I have read many Beverly Lewis books, and was very happy to receive one of her books this month. As usual, she doesn't disappoint! I read the book in one day…..it was a lazy summer day to lounge on the porch swing with a good book, and I couldn't wait to start this one. Rather than idealize the Amish and their way of life, Lewis portrays them as real people who face many of the same life issues as the non Amish. Family dynamics are explored as the story moves along, and the characters are developed. There is pain and hurt to be worked through, and ultimately there is reconciliation and forgiveness. Interesting also, is the glimpse into the Amish culture, and the reasons why some Amish make the choice to leave . As the book portrays, many who leave do not turn from their faith in God, but have embraced a more personal relationship with Christ and are active in living their faith. I really enjoy faith based inspirational books that point to Biblical principles as guidelines for how to live our lives, especially when we are facing difficulties. Lewis gets these points across quite well!

    This is a lovely book. It deals with several issues. This story is good as again. Beverly get you reader involves and keep you on in the book. It tell you the story about two sisters, Will Tilly and Ruth find their peace? Do They resolve their relationships? The family need to settle their issues with both sister that left the faith.

    The sister find out their father is ill. It might be their last time for them to get together. There is a secret about one of the sisters that left. Their mother and their father are the ones that know what happen. Tilly finds out why she at odds with her father. They all have to deal with what happen at the river. It also heal some relationships in the family when they go to the River. I think this would be a good book for those that enjoy a little mystery though it does not have many but a few. One is the mystery is about their little sister. A another other with Tilly.

    Two sisters who were raised Amish but are now “English” have returned to the old homestead to celebrate their parents’ wedding anniversary with the extended family. The relationship between the oldest daughter, Tilly, and her father has always been strained. The death of the youngest daughter by drowning and the fact that some blame Tilly for enticing her sister Ruth to the English world just adds fuel to the fire. Other complications in this tale include an unresolved romance between an Amish man and Ruth and the life-threatening illness of the father. Though this story had potential, I found that it was trite and superficial. The characters seemed two-dimensional and plot was predictable. Though it did explore familial relationships, it just wasn’t that well written.

    Good read about an Amish pair of sisters that never join the church. Their English ways significantly bother their Amish family. Tilly has not seen her family in nearly 8 years and for Ruth it has been 3 years. When their father's health declines, they are invited home for their parents' anniversary. They decide to go and Tilly discovers the truth about her father's treatment of her during her childhood. And to top that off, she and eldest brother Melvin discover they each have harbored guilt for their youngest sister's drowning.

    I have read many of Beverly Lewis' books set in Amish country, and other Amish-themed books. The book "The River" stands out in that it features two sisters who have chosen to leave the Amish to become "Englischers" and their return to the home they grew up in at the invitation of their brother for the purpose of celebrating their parents' anniversary.Often in Amish books there are characters who choose to leave the Amish for some reason. Most often, those people are shunned, and the story tells of the difficulties they face as being shunned. This story has a different twist. There is no shunning involved. Instead there is an attempt at reconciliation. Sometimes when I've read a lot of one type of story or several by the same author, the books tend to kind of run together as they are so similar. "The River" will stand out in my mind because of the way Lewis weaves many different aspects of the lives of both the Amish and the Englischers.

    This was another great book by Beverly Lewis. I always enjoy her Amish books.I enjoyed the story of what had happened when the sisters have left their Amish upbringing. Secrets always have a way to come out. I really liked the way they were each forgiven. Ruth really had made the correct choice when she had left her beau in the first place.I really enjoyed the family gathering. It was a very interesting time watching them come together with their opinions expressed in many different ways. I really enjoyed reading this book.
