The Promise of an Angel

By Ruth Reid
Published by Thomas Nelson

Book Description

In Mescota County, Michigan, an angelic visitor's words inspire Judith to a future she never imagined. After a barn raising accident, Judith Fischer’s convinced she’s met an angel. However, her attempts to convince others end up frustrating her Old-Order Amish community. Only Andrew Lapp believes her, but the rest, including Levi Plank, the man’s she’s waited to marry, demand she forget the nonsense. Meanwhile, her younger sister Martha has taken a fancy to Levi and sees her sister's controversy as a perfect distraction for turning Levi's head.
In a dream, the angel tells Judith she must choose her path. As her faith continues to grow, so do her feelings for Andrew. Will she continue to place her hope in the angel’s message, even if it means losing all she knows and loves?
My Review:
If you like Amish Fiction you will enjoy this book. As the story goes an accident occurs while Judith is in charge of her younger siblings during a barn raising. An angel appears to give a word from the Lord to Judith that her brother will be okay. As she shares this word with others almost everyone turns on her and thinks she is crazy. What I took from the story is to fellow the Lord even when others close to you might not understand or believe.This is my first time to read a book from this author and I would recommend her book to all Amish Fiction fans.
