An Unforgivable Secret - Review

An Unforgivable Secret by J.E.B. Spredemann is the first of her Amish Secrets series.  If you enjoy reading Amish books you’ll enjoy this one.  I actually was given the audiobook by the author and even though I love books I enjoyed listening to it even more. 

Hannah Stolzfus is a wonderful young person that is betrothed to Christian Glick in this story.  In a moment of uncertainty the future is drastically and forever changed for both of them.  Even though problems arise, can they turn to God for help?  Will they?

I love reading about the Amish.  Their faith and their spirituality in God amazes me.  It shouldn’t but it’s something that I long and strife for, that I am drawn to these stories.  Oh, I know that they struggle with their faith like everyone else and they aren’t perfect, but every time I read about the Amish they are so caring.   An Unforgivable Secret is about that faith and how if we look to God he will turn the ugly to beauty.

As I said I listened to this on Audible and there was so many times that I had to pause it and back up because the tears just kept coming.  Lisa Larsen was a wonderful narrator for this book.  At first I was really listening to see if she changed voices enough where I could keep everyone apart but honestly, by the second chapter I was so engrossed in this story it felt like I was there with them so it was easy keeping everyone apart.   I had said that it would be a couple of weeks before I could do this review but once I started listening I couldn’t put it down until I had finished it.  The story spans over many years of Hannah and Christian.  I enjoyed the different time frames in An Unforgivable Secret.

Thank you to the author for giving us a story of redemption and grace.  This review is my honest opinion about An Unforgivable Secret.  I can’t wait for the next in this series.
