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 sh

Very good book that deals with grief and how two very different women have dealt with it. Maryanna lost her husband in an accident leaving her to raise their four children without him. She has done very well but recent events have made her think that perhaps it is time to think of remarrying. When her youngest daughter goes missing she begins to question herself and the way she has been living her life. Her daughter’s return by a young Englischer woman gives her a chance to help someone else. I
Jodi had come to Lancaster to house sit for her cousin and to try to deal with the grief of losing her sister to cancer. This grief had caused her to lose her faith in God and was also creating some stress with her fiance. When she finds a little girl on the side of the road she tries to find out who she belongs to – not easy when the child speaks no English. A suggestion from her cousin sends her to Hickory Hollow, where she reunites Sarah with her family. She is surprised to find herself so warmly welcomed by the Amish family and invited to visit often. She finds Maryanna’s quiet faith comforting, and just being with her and her family begins to renew her own faith. I loved seeing Jodi’s honest struggle with her grief and the realistic way it was portrayed. Her enjoyment of spending time with the Esh family goes a long way toward healing her grief. She was surprised to be invited to teach at the Amish school and worked very hard to make sure she didn’t abuse the trust they placed in her. I loved seeing her become so close with the Amish people of Hickory Hollow and what a difference they made in her life. I loved the epilogue and how it showed what became of the friendship between Jodi and Maryanna.
I wish there was a way to give 0 stars to a book. That’s not because it’s the worst book ever written (I’m sure there’s plenty of competition for that) but because it’s so misleading, nevermind pathetically predictable and filled with nothing but cliches. But the worst part is that it’s presented to an unsuspected reader, who walks into a library and picks it up innocently, as a great mystery about a child that vanished. Then when the child is reunited with the family early on in the book, you a
Beverly Lewis is a fixture among Amish fiction authors and I was thrilled to have the chance to read The Guardian. Little Sarah and her siblings view the Englischer, Jodi Winfield, as a guardian angel who saved her. This is a wonderful book that blends the two worlds as Jodi is “adopted” into the Amish family and community of Hickory Hollow. I felt envious of Jodi as I would love to be able to live among the Amish in an actual Amish home and feel that same peace, quiet, and solitude.
Jodi has ex
