While I do think Beverly Lewis' writing is a little slow moving, I still enjoy the stories. Very sweet love story between an Amish woman and an Englisher.

"The Crossroad" is the sequel to "The Postcard". Rachel who became blind from a terrible accident early in her marriage... may have her vision restored after a journalist, Philip is drawn back to Lancaster with suggestion for a cure for Rachels bindness. Very good book, quick reading, and very hard to put down once you start reading.

This is the sequel to "The Postcard." Phillip Bradley has gone back to NYC and his "fancy" way of life, but can't seem to get the beautiful, blink Rachel Yoder out of his head. He has started going to church and has found spiritual happiness, but he still feels like something is missing. He continues to do research of blindness caused by trauma to try to help Rachel. Rachel has come to a point where she's decided that God will heal her sight if she keeps praying for guidance and keeps refusing the healing of the powwow doctors. She starts to make amends with the tragic accident that took her husband and young son, but hits a wall whenever she tries to push the memories too far. She also can't seem to get Philip Bradley out of her head, though she feel that they could never be together because they come from such different worlds.

Ultimately, I was glad to find out what happened to the characters, but this book seemed to drag in spots. It started off strong, but I felt I was slogging through it by the middle and the ending just seemed rushed. It seemed repetitive and it probably would have been better as a shorter book since there seemed to be a lot of filler. Definitely not as good as the first book, but if you are interested in finding out what happens between Rachel and Phillip from the first book like I was, then it's at least worth it for that.

The Crossroad is the sequel to The Postcard. I would not consider it to be a standalone novel, as it really is a continuation of the first book. I would only recommend reading it, if you have read The Postcard. I enjoyed both books--The Crossroad was even better than The Postcard. I recommend both books to those who enjoy Amish fiction, particularly if you are interested in their beliefs as followers of God.

Rachel, the primary female character, and the focus of the story, has lost her sight due to psychological trauma. The main plotline follows Rachel as she recognizes that she is no longer satisfied with being blind and she is ready to do whatever it takes regain her vision. Although I found this part of the story quite compelling, I was most fascinated with several of the subplots which centered on specific beliefs and traditions held sacred by the Amish. There are numerous interesting threads in the story and I would consider The Crossroad to be the antithesis of a boring read.

Philip Bradley continues to impress readers in this book, as the man who might just possibly be perfect for Rachel. Several secondary characters add interest to the story. Lavina is one that I especially like. She has more than average courage and conviction, though is generally considered to be lacking in some areas. God uses her to bless others in unexpected ways.

I recommend this book to those who enjoy Amish fiction.
