She Prayed This Day Would Never Come

Trembling, Melissa James returned the phone to its cradle and hurried to the stairs. She grasped the railing, nearly stumbling as she made her way to the second-floor bedroom. Her heart caught in her throat as she considered the next move. Her only option.

You can do this, she told herself, stifling a sob. You must...

Compelling and inspiring, Sanctuary is a harrowing love story of the power behind revenge, the price for freedom, and the solace found in friendship. It portrays characters both tender and flawed whose search for meaning bring them to a moment of shocking and profound truth.

Ok, I don’t understand why this book is counted as the third book in the series of Amish Country Crossroads, as this book does not follow the two previous books or include any of the previous characters.
Aside from that, I have to say that this isn’t my favorite book by Beverly Lewis.
I liked the book and how I couldn’t put it down due to the action and suspense, and wanting to know what was going to happen. But I didn’t really like how it was fully written and even though the ending shocked me and caught me off guard, I felt like the book just lacked a little in general.

This was a great book. I couldn't put it down. It made me feel like I was right there!! Melissa thought she knew her Husband and he had secret!!

This book is far different than most of Beverly Lewis' books. Although it still deals with issues of faith and involves the Amish, it tells of the life of a girl struggling with fears of her past. This book is how she runs from her fears and lands in the outstretched arms of God.
