The Atonement (Review)
This review is for the book "The Atonement" by Beverly Lewis. This is one of Beverly Lewis' standalone novels. I believe most people are probably familiar with Lewis as an author. I have always enjoyed her Amish fiction, and this book did not disappoint me.
In this book, Lucy Flaud is twenty-five and assumes that she will always live the life of a single woman due to past mistakes. She spends most of her time volunteering as a penance. Once her father strikes up a friendship with an English man who starts coming around the house, Lucy starts thinking about her past, and her relationship with God and others. She is able to talk to her friend Tobe, who has always been there for her, and start coming to grips with her past as well as God's forgiveness.
Another beautiful story by Lewis that focuses on family and God's grace. A great read that will leave you feeling good.
Thank you to Bethany House for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
