The Promise of an Angel by Ruth Reid

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 Comments :


This is the 1st book of Ruth Reid's "A Heaven On Earth" series. There are 3 books in this series


She had done an amazing work on this first book as the book certainly give a refreshing twist to the usual Amish fiction. Just imagine, nobody believes that Judith have seen an angel. Instead f supports, she was in fact frown upon and thought to be sowing discord among the community.


The character of were quite well developed and it shows us how important to held on something that you believe in inside of just going with the flow. Though our faith may waver sometimes but God would come knocking at our door to lead us back to his folds just like Jesus Parables on the Lost Lamb.


I finished this book in one reading as the story was good and easy to read.


There is only one complaint about this book. Well, actually it's two. I find that the cover looks rather dull. Without reading the synopsis, I don't think I would pick up this book in the stores. But this is only my personal opinion for each person taste is different. 


My second complaint is, this book may have spoilt me for the second instalment as I would have higher expectation for the second book.

I've never read Ruth Reid before but I'd love to now. Btw, finally got around to reading Tilly Bagshawe's Sidney Sheldon's After the Darkness that I found out from one of your blogs last year. Hard to put down indeed! :)
