The Photograph by Beverly Lewis

I won this advance reader copy through the LibraryThing Early Review Giveaway.
 I have not read very many Amish books but I love Beverly Lewis' writing. It's clear, non-confusing with just the right amount of description and Amish language without bogging down the story. The Photograph is a sweet story of 3 unmarried sisters surviving after the deaths of their parents within a short time of each other.
The story emphasizes their love and obedience to God and the strong family commitment of the Amish while questioning the innocent desire for love; in the community and in the outside world.
I think this is one of the best books I have read this year. I my reviews on LibraryThing and Goodreads I gave it 4 stars.
