THE TINDERBOX, by Beverly Lewis, Bethany House


With her Amish parents’ twentieth anniversary approaching, eighteen-year-old Sylvia Miller stumbles across a surprise–the old brass tinderbox her clockmaker father keeps in his Lancaster County shop has been left unlocked. Against her better judgment, Sylvia opens the cherished heirloom, not realizing that what she is about to discover will splinter apart her happy life.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

This is not my first Beverly Lewis book. I have read and enjoyed her work before. If you like clean writing and good stories, then you may want to give this author a try.

This author has a clear writing style that you’ll easily enjoy. Her voice weaves you into a world and draws you into the character’s life effortlessly. The plot doesn’t wrap up entirely suggesting perhaps, there will be a series? However, the character reaches her goals.

The premise hooked me in. A family mystery spiced up with what I would consider an unusual (sometimes better) lifestyle, is perfect for a rainy day of reading and rest. I read this book through quickly.

If you love clean writing, this book is for you.
