This book review is very special to me for several reasons…but first, read the description on the back of the book (below). When you get to the end, you’ll see why. This is a book you have to read!
Author: Elizabeth Byler Younts
“I was learning about sacrifice as my hungry little brother wanted more than his share of food. I fed him what I had, knowing there would be nothing for me.”
As the oldest in an improvised Amish family, Lydia Lee knows little more of life beyond hard work, sacrifice, and extreme hunger. Yet, even as a young girl, she strives to be content with all that God has provided.
Against the backdrop of the Great Depression, Lydia’s childhood unfolds as her family struggles to survive, finding strength from their Amish faith. But, when Tragedy strikes, that very faith is tested beyond what any child should have to endure. When all hope seems lost, Lydia is reminded that all things have seasons.
The spring of her life has been spent planting prayers in the soil of sadness and heartache . Will she see a summer of true love? Will there be harvest of happiness?
Why this book is special:
- I am on the cover!
- It’s about my great grandmother!
- My amazing Aunt wrote it!
