This novel is the story of an Amish family that is torn apart by a mysterious accident to the main characters mother. The main story line is about 2 sisters and each one is finding her way through their family, faith and life. I found this to be a good character story that I breezed through quickly. I am glad I waited till all books were available before I started reading. That way I could finish within a brief period of time and not have to sit on pins and needles wond ...more

The story in this one is a little bit better than usual, but everything else is just more of the same, though that isn't a bad thing. I'm curious to see how Ms. Lewis will wrap the series up in the series' finale. As I said in my review of the first book: "If you've read any of Beverly Lewis' Amish books, you know what to expect, and that's what you'll get from this book."
Score: 4.25/5 ...more
The Judgment follows Rose through shifting dynamics in her relationship with her betrothed, Hen through the murky waters of a failing marriage, and the lovable Beth who brings hope and joy to the Kauffman family.
Now I'm just wondering what happens in the final book...glad I found it on the library shelves!
I am reading this series absolutely backwards, because I accidentally picked up the last book in the series and read it first, so when I started to read this one, the second in the Rose Trilogy, I thought I had already read it. But it didn't take me long to realize what had happened, and that although I knew the end result, I didn't know much of what ha ...more

I highly recommend reading this book if you read The Thorn, don't stop there! I very much enjoyed this and read it much faster than The Thorn. I'm looking forward to beginning the third book now, "The Mercy" which I have here reading to read!
Good, Christian reading for all ages.
