"The Atonement" by Beverly Lewis is a stand alone novel about an Amish woman who has yet to forgive herself for her past. Lucy devotes large amounts of time to several different charities and even takes on some of the charitable personally. She has ceased to attend church activities and dating of any kind. Though Tobe, her admirer, hasn't completely abandoned the idea of courting her and Dale, a non-Amish man who is in her grief group, has taken a liking to her as well, she is keeping both of them at arms length convinced that she is no good for either of them.
This is a good book. The characters are well written and the plot is good. Lewis doesn't do anything spectacular or different here than in any of her others. If you liked them, you'll like this one just as well. I received this book in exchange for a review from Bethany House Publishers.
