Review of A Sister's Forgiveness by Anna Schmidt & Book Giveaway!

Could you forgive someone who killed your child? Jeannie must, to preserve her family. Sisters Emma and Jeannie are best friends, and so are their teenage daughters Sadie and Tessa. But when a tragic accident results in Tess’s death—and Sadie is responsible—both families are devastated. Each sister must find a way from heartbreak and anguish to solace and forgiveness—but is there anything to be salvaged from a world that lies in ruins?

Anna Schmidt has three times (including this year) been a finalist for the coveted RITA award for romance fiction and has twice before been recognized by Romantic Times magazine with their Reviewer's Choice Award.

My Review

Is this a good book about forgiveness? This book has a very different plot different from a lot of Amish/Mennonite books. I had a hard time with the book being written from six different points of view which made it drag on and on. It was such a sad story I got depressed while reading it. I learned a few things about the Mennonites that I did not know before reading this book and I loved the fact that it took place in Pinecraft.

  6. I would love to enter for this book, Mary. I love too that it is in Pinecraft. This would be such a difficult spot to be in. But, wasn't the sister's fault, was it? Would take a lot of praying and faith.

  10. Mary, you know how much I love reading books about the Amish. While doing my family history I learned we have both Amish and Mennonite history! So interesting!! Forgiveness isn't always easy but God wants us to forgive. I couldn't imagine a situation though where I had to forgive someone for the death of my child? Only through Him would I be able to do that. Sounds like an interesting book; one I'd like to read.
