Their Lives Were Neither Plain Nor Simple
The Covenant opened Beverly Lewis’ explosive new fiction series, ABRAM’S DAUGHTERS , unveiling layers of deeply rooted Amish tradition as seen through the eyes of the Ebersol sisters. Now in Book Two, The Betrayal?.
Abram Ebersol and wife, Ida, are raising their four daughters on a firm foundation of Plain traditions, and he expects the girls to carry on that heritage into the future, safe and secure in their cloistered Lancaster County community. But Sadie, the oldest daughter, has found little appeal in her Amish life compared to the lure of the ’’English’’ world surrounding them. When Sadie’s traditional rumschpringe before embracing baptismal vows goes terribly awry, sister Leah’s life also may be forever altered by their secret pact?.
The twins, Hannah and Mary Ruth, have their own distinct and hidden yearnings, and fear clutches at each heart as the two begin to realize where those yearnings might lead.
Is the Ebersol family tapestry unraveling too quickly, too permanently, to be repaired?
