The Guardian

My Thoughts:
I think I enjoyed this book more than any of Beverly's other books.  I could relate to the pain the mother of the little girl felt, I also was drawn into the attraction of Jodi, to little Sarah. That was the drawing point for me.  I could relate to the characters.  I cried and laughed as I read along.  I have to say my favorite line in the entire book, was the one where the young bride told her groom if he wanted a hot breakfast, she could set his cornflakes on fire.  I laughed until I cried on that one.  A wonderful story.  A must read.  4.5 stars from this reviewer.

About the Book:
When schoolteacher Jodi Winfield goes for a morning run, the last thing she expects is to find a disheveled little girl all alone on the side of the Pennsylvania road, clad only in her undergarments, her chubby cheeks streaked with tears. Jodi takes the preschooler home with her, intending to find out where she belongs. But Jodi is mystified when no one seems to know of a missing child, and the girl herself is no help, since she can't speak a word of English. It's as if the child appeared out of nowhere.

As the days pass, Jodi becomes increasingly attached to the mysterious girl, yet she is no closer to learning her identity. Then an unexpected opportunity brings Jodi to Hickory Hollow--and into the cloistered world of the Lancaster Old Order Amish. Might the answers lie there?
