If you enjoy reading this genre of literature, you will definitely enjoy this book. I don't always read books in sequence, but as you can tell, it is part of a series, so if it is very important to you to read things in order, read the first two books first.

I find this type of book enjoyable reading because it is "clean" and describes a lifestyle and culture that is different from my own. It is not complicated or serious fiction - often you can predict how things will turn out in the end, but they almost always have a little turn or two you might not quite have predicted.

NYT bestselling author Beverly Lewis. Portrait of the Amish community.

This was a great book! Answers most of the questions brought up in the former two books. Leaves you wanting to follow the lives of Annie, Ben and Esther longer. Surely we won't be left wondering about Annie's friend, Lou. Would really like to see a 4th book!

Final book in the trilogy of Annie's People. The people are al abuzz abour Zeke's arrest, but I can't allow myself to stew, 'cause I need all my strength and courage to help dear Essie and her children, who are floundering so. Even though Essie is holding fast to her newfound faith, she also seems to be holding her breath about Zeke. We all are, really. Because what one person may be found guilty of affects us all.

I am holding my breath too, counting the days till my six-month promise ends. Then I can pick up where I left off with easel and paintbrush...

Despite Ben's departure, my life has not returned to normal. Truth be known, my dreams of Ben keep me awake long into the night. Daydreams distrat me, too. Images I will into existence bymy fobidden yearnings, intermixed as they are with my sdaness at having sent Ben away. Still, I try to remember what the Good Book says, "Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted...."

The author makes you want to sit down and read begining to end without stopping. It will either make you question the path you are following or reaffirm your belief in God. I look forward to reading the other books that are a part of this series.

This is a book based in a fictional Amish setting, but Beverly Lewis' mother came from a Plain family, so her story has believable settings. Very, very good book.

A "wonderful-gut" end to the series. I struggled through the series at first because of the abuse issues, but this third book if worth the sadness in the first two. I was so happy for the ending that I had to stay up late to finished the book with about 50 or so pages to go. Another quick read and I suggest that you read this series in quick order.

Gift copy!
The final book in the trilogy Annie's People, The Brethren picks up with Annie beginning her six month agreement with her preacher father to not paint anything. Annie has also moved into the home of her friend, Essie, who is a shunned member of the Amish community for having come to believe in a religious thought different than their own. Also back is Ben, the Englisher of the previous novel, who is trying to grapple with his own identity and his love for Annie.

Lewis is an excellent storyteller and this novel brings the Amish community to life vividly. I could sympathize with Annie and her torn heart, and I could appreciate the mysteries surrounding the appearance of Ben.books. Overall this is a well-done book and another fine example of Lewis's ability to share the Amish life and create characters who will live in your heart for a long time to come. Highly Recommended!
