The Photograph by Beverly Lewis is the story of three Amish sisters: Frona, Eva, and Lily. The sisters live on their own as both of their parents have died. Unexpectedly, Lily chooses to leave the Amish, and no one knows where she has gone. Eva tries to continue her day to day life, including running her candy shop and getting to know newcomer Jed Stutzman, while trying to solve the mystery of Lily's disappearance. Jed arrives in Eden Valley with a photograph he found on his trip from Ohio. He's sure he knows who is in the photograph, but appearances can be deceiving.
This book is the type of story I've come to expect from Beverly Lewis. Each book is a look into an Amish community and captures the lives of the fictional characters that live there. This book has a bit of mystery and suspense, but I feel it follows a pretty typical plot line for this type of novel. The book is very enjoyable and a pleasant and relaxing read. I'd recommend it to anyone that enjoys well-researched Amish fiction.
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for this review; all opinions are my own.
