Lyn Reviews Marta Perry’s The Forgiven & THE WINNERS of the Scavenger Hunt

The Forgiven: Keepers of the Promise: Book OneThe Forgiven: Keepers of the Promise: Book One by Marta Perry

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Forgiven is not the first novel I’ve read by award-winning author Marta Perry so I wasn’t surprised at how well written and thought-provoking the story was.

Marta Perry knows what she’s doing in creating characters that spring to life within the pages of her novel. One doesn’t need to be Amish to face the problems that young widow Rebecca Fisher and Matthew, the prodigal nephew, do.

Juxtaposititioned to the present is the old family story of Anna Esch and her sweetheart Jacob facing the challenges of being Amish during WWII.

As Rebecca reads of Anna’s struggles to keep faith in a tumultuous time, she finds the strength to face the challenges of single parenthood and making her own way.

I received an Advanced Reading Copy of this novel from the author who is a friend. HOWEVER, my review is honest. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading Amish or inspirational fiction

Do you enjoy reading Amish novels?–Lyn

Hi, Lyn!
Wow!  I can’t believe it!  I don’t usually win anything!
Thanks so much for letting me know!  I did receive another email with the gift card information.  Thanks so much!  I really enjoyed the scavenger hunt and learned about so many authors that I had not heard of.  There are quite a few books on my wish list, including several of yours.  I will use the gift card to purchase one of the books!
Thanks again!

Congratulations to these ladies. And thanks for your participation. Look forward to the Spring Scavenger Hunt!
