WHILE A FAMILY WAITS, THE TRUTH BECKONS...I stumbled upon my mother's handkerchief in the cornfield early this morning. Halfway down the row I spotted it--white but soiled, cast in the mire of recent rains. Only one side of the stitched hem was visible, the letter L poking out from the furrow as if to get my attention. I stared at it ...all the emotions of the past three weeks threatening to rise up and choke me right then and there.Twice now, I'd walked the field where Mamma had sometimes wandered late at night. Like our sheep, she'd followed the same trails till ruts developed. I couldn't help wondering where the well-trod path had led her by the light of the lonely moon. Honestly, though, 'tis only in the daylight that I've been compelled to go there, drawn by thoughts of her and the hope of some further word, whenever that might come...."Mamma...where are you?" I whispered to the breeze. "What things don't we know?"

Readers anxiously await the second book in this moving series filled with mystery and family secrets, love and loss, heartbreak and healing. Twenty-one-year-old Grace Byler longs to find her missing mother and to uncover the secret that drove her to leave them three weeks before. Grace suspects the reason has to do with her father and his reserved, uncommunicative ways. This conviction led Grace to break off her betrothal to her quiet, staid beau, and she is now resigned to remain single. But when the young Amishman she thought was courting her best friend takes a sudden interest in her, Grace is befuddled and wonders if he can be trusted. "Englisher" Heather Lang has come to Amish country to relive fond memories of her mother and to contemplate a grave medical prognosis of her own. While in Bird-in-Hand, Heather meets Grace Byler and the two young women strike up a fast friendship, amazed by how well they click. Following the only clue they have, Grace and Heather travel together in

Beverly Lewis

Beverly Lewis was born Beverly Marie Jones in 1949, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and grew up in the heart of 'Pennsylvania Dutch' country. She played and composed on the piano and wrote avidly from a very young age. Beverly's father was an Assemblies of God pastor, and she was raised in that denomination. However, she became fascinated with her ancestral links to the Old Order Mennonite community into which her maternal grandmother, Ada Buchwalter, had been born. Beverly's deep affinity for her Amish heritage has inspired much of her prodigious literary output - over eighty books for both children and adults.

Beverly graduated from Evangel University with a degree in Music Education, and became a schoolteacher. When her own three children were middle school age, Beverly began submitting stories to children's magazines. Her first book Mountain Bikes and Garbanzo Beans was published in 1993.

Beverly's first adult fiction, published in 1997, was the Heritage of Lancaster County trilogy, about the experiences of a young Amish woman Katie Lapp as she moves from the plain traditions of her upbringing into the modern world. Beverly has followed this award-winning bestseller with a stream of popular titles that have established her as one of our time's most beloved storytellers. Her titles include the Cul-De-Sac Kids, the Girls Only (GO!), and the Holly's Heart series for children, and the Amish based Rose, Seasons of Grace, Abram's Daughter, The Courtship of Nellie Fisher, and Annie's People series. She has received numerous awards including two Silver Angel Awards for her novels The Postcard and Annika's Secret Wish, and a Golden Book Award for The Shunning, the first volume of her Heritage of Lancaster County series.

Beverly is a member of the National League of American Pen Women as well as a Distinguished Alumnus of Evangel University. She says of her leisure:

"When I'm between writing deadlines, I enjoy hiking in the Rocky Mountains with my husband. Cooking from scratch, playing Mozart at the piano, and making family memory albums, as well as traveling to meet my devoted readers during book tours, are some of my very favorite things. I also adore reading biographies and memoirs, as well as classic literature."

She makes her home with her husband David in Colorado. In addition to their three adult children, they have three grandchildren.
