Description of The Guardian, Home to Hickory Hollow Series Book 3 by Beverly Lewis

The Guardian is one of bestselling author Beverly Lewis's most thrilling Amish fiction novels yet!

When schoolteacher Jodi Winfield goes for a morning run, the last thing she expects is to find a disheveled little girl all alone on the side of the Pennsylvania road, clad only in her undergarments, her chubby cheeks streaked with tears. Jodi takes the preschooler home with her, intending to find out where she belongs. But Jodi is mystified when no one seems to know of a missing child, and the girl herself is no help, since she can't speak a word of English. It's as if the child appeared out of nowhere.

As the days pass, Jodi becomes increasingly attached to the mysterious girl, yet she is no closer to learning her identity. Then an unexpected opportunity brings Jodi to Hickory Hollow - and into the cloistered world of the Lancaster Old Order Amish. Might the answers lie there?

3 StarsDisappointed
I was diappointed with the first two books in this series, but still held out hope that Beverly Lewis might redeem herself with this installment. The description of the book sounded much more intriguing than the previous two, and I believed this would be the story to finally wrap up all the loose ends left untied so far in this series. Nope. The description of "The Guardian" that is being used for marketing purposes only applies to about the first 40 pages. At that time the conflict is resolved and the reader is left wondering where in the world the story will head next? It ends up being a very a slow-moving, confusing tale that doesn't relate at all to the previous two books. I am now utterly confused by this series. Where is the uniting factor? Sure, a few of the characters from previous installments are mentioned in passing, but other than that, the connection is lost on me. I still give this book three stars because it is wholesome, God-honoring fiction, and it could be enjoyable for somebody who just wants a light, easy read. But I wish Beverly Lewis would return to the level of artistry she gave us in her early Amish fiction!
