You will enjoy this book if you like stories about Amish life. Read it before its sequel... The Timepiece. I did it backwards though and still enjoyed both.

I liked this book. This is not my favorite book by Beverly Lewis but it was a good book.
I found it interesting to learn about the big secret that was hidden inside the tinderbox and how it slowly unraveled.
This book just really proves that secrets don’t stay buried forever and that it’s really important to always be honest not matter what. Even if you don’t blatantly tell a lie, not telling the whole truth can be just as bad.
Even though I know that the focus of this story was not on Sylvia and her relationship with her beau, I do have to say that I feel like their relationship is doomed and the few scenes we got from them together did not make me like them as a couple. I really hope that they don’t end up together in the sequel book because their relationship just didn’t come across as very healthy and mutual.
