I was very eager to open this book, and it took me a little over a day to read this. I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed The Heritage of Lancaster County and The Postcard. I thought that towards the end Rachel would shut the door on Philip, only to see that somehow God told Philip to go back to where Rachel lives, and then have his whole life changed to the Amish ways. I eagerly await more fictional books on the Amish. I only got started.
Although The Postcard and this book, The Crossing do not come close to the interest Beverly Lewis drew in her 3 book series, Shunning, Confession and Reckoning, this book was good enough to hold my interest and a fitting conclusion to the Postcard. It seemed shallow compared to the other 3 books, and had a very predictable outcome. I do hope Beverly will write more of the quality found in the Shunning series.
I thought this was a wonderful ending to the story of Rachel. I read it within a week, but I didn't read quite as fast as I did the Heritage of Lancaster County. But still very good. Allthough I wish the author would have went to more detail about Rachel and Phillips life at the end. I still thought it was good and I'm looking forward to her next book.

I have enjoyed this series even more than the Heritage of Lancaster series. Rachel seemed like a real person, a friend that I could sympathize and rejoice with. Hopefully, Beverly Lewis will tell us more of what happens with Rachel now that she has found her way in life again.
