The thorn is about two old Amish sisters; one married to an outsider the other unsure of the feelings of her heart. Hen, married to an outsider but longs for the old ways of which she was raised, but torn between her husband and daughter and the ways of her family she has to make hard decisions that will change her and her family’s future forever. Rose, unsure of her feelings for two different men, being courted by one yet devoted to another, the bishop’s rebellious foster son, Nick. Many things happen to the two sisters that change them and those around them, for the better and the worse.
The thorn, the first book in the rose trilogy, is a powerful book that after you have start you never want to put down until the very end. When you reach the end you want to read the next book to find out what happens. Beverly did a great job on this book, like all of her books it was a great read and it held a powerful message behind the story. I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read more books by Beverly Lewis in the years to come. I would recommend this series to an fan of Amish fiction.
I was not made to write a good review, this is my opinion alone. I got this book for review thru backer publishing group.
