Rendezvous Review: Although Leah Ebersol still loves the missing Jonas, she finds contentment mothering her two younger siblings, Abe and Lydiann. Her sister Sadie continues to grieve over the loss of her family but seems to have found a measure of peace in Gobbler's Knot. Reading Mama's Bible makes Leah and her Pa question some of the teachings of the Amish Church, especially Bishops Bontager's attitude toward Mary Ruth since she joined the Mennonite church. The family is overjoyed to learn Pa and Aunt Lizzie are planning to marry. Sadie is haunted because she's failed to admit Jonas never saw Leah's letter because she got rid of it. Before she gets up enough nerve to confess, the letter is returned. After being appointed a preacher in the Amish church, Leah's brother-in-law married to Mary Ruth becomes as self-righteous as the Bishop. Many miles away in Apple Creek, Ohio, Jonas too is haunted by the letter he never received and decides to return home and learn why Leah never wrote him. After noticing Dr. Schwartz's frequent visit to a small unmarked grave, Sadie is determined to learn why. The sweeping drama of Abram's Daughters continues in THE PRODIGAL. Beverly Lewis's characters are so real that you feel you know them. This author is a treasure chest loaded with gems of faith and hope. -- Mary Thompson (Reviewed 09-01-2004)
