Review of "An Unforgivable Secret"
Review of An Unforgivable Secret
by J.E.B. Spredemann
Hannah has a good life. A beautiful home, a loving husband, and a wonderful Amish community are only a few of her daily blessings. But she has carried a heavy burden for years: a secret that no one must know. When tragedy strikes, her secret threatens to be revealed, jeopardizing everything she's ever loved. Will Hannah be able to face her greatest fear and find God's purpose for her life? Inspirational Christian Fiction
MY REVIEW: This was a very engaging work of Amish fiction but I was surprised that several main characters had great difficulty in forgiving since the Amish faith is very outspoken about their forgiveness. It does show the Amish in this book, though, to be very human and struggling with many of the same issues as Englisch. I appreciated the way that the Bishop and elders handled the difficult issues in the book, as well. I won't spoil the book by revealing what those issues were. I finished this book in one evening as I just could not stop reading. I rate this book 5 stars and highly recommend it to others.
