The Reckoning

By Beverly Lewis

Another beautifully written book by Beverly Lewis!

"The Reckoning" is the third and final book in the Heritage of Lancaster County. Following the story of Katherine Mayfield (Katie Lapp) the story resumes with Katherine assuming her position as Mistress of Mayfield Manor. This is a considerable lifestyle change for a young woman who was raisede Amish by her adoptive parents.

Still struggling with her shunning by the Amish people, she devises a way for her maid to write her best friend in Hickory Hollow.

To further complicate things, her first love who she believes to be dead appears at her door one day.

Faced with many difficult decisions, she agrees to attend church with her maid and butler, and hears of the true gospel and God's love for her. The seess of the Gospel are sown, and Katherine must examine herself, her past, and future.

This is a tremendous story of forgiveness, reconciliation, and redemption.
