In The Preacher's Daughter, the town of Paradise seems aptly named---to all but Annie, whose squelched artistic abilities make it feel more like purgatory.

A Nice Start to the Series  May 2, 2008
Overall, I enjoyed this book. I loved getting to know Annie and her community. I know very little about the Amish so I was interested in seeing what their lives are like through the eyes of these characters. The first 1/3 of the book was a little slow for me but after that it picked up quite nicely.

The contrasts between Annie and Louisa (main characters) are as big as the Grand Canyon and, yet, as little as their pinky toe. One lives a "Plain" life, the other a "fancy" one. Despite this, both ladies have a strong determination within that transfers over to every decision they make for their lives. They are "sisters" in spirit. A sweet relationship to watch unfold.

There are many different characters in this story and some of them I wouldn't have expected to find among the Amish community. Like any story, some you love and some you hate. Throughout, I found myself cheering for Annie. She has so much promise and passion and, unfortunately, at the same time, opposition.
Great!  Dec 23, 2007
This was a great book! You really feel like you get to know Annie and her friends. I couldn't put it down! I'm currently reading "The Englisher", which is the second book in the series, and I love that one too. If you are looking for good Christian fiction, be sure to read "The Preacher's Daughter".
A wonderfully interesting tale  Oct 22, 2007
Annie Zook, the daughter of an Amish preacher has long maintained a forbidden secret - she loves to draw and to paint, art forms forbidden amongst her people. Louisa Stratford is the daughter of a successful Colorado lawyer, always having all the money she could possibly want, but knowing that there is something missing from her life. Pen pals since childhood, Annie and Louisa will come to rely on each other as they move forward into a future that they little expected.

This is another great book by Christian author Beverly Lewis. Let me first say what it is not - it is not a book of praise of the Amish life, nor is it an expose; it's not a simple story of faith overcoming all obstacles, and it's not a story of finding God and having all problems drop away. Instead, what this is is a realistic story of Annie, struggling to live her faith, and maintain the standards of her church, even when she does not fully agree with them. And it is the story of Louisa, who sees how complicated life can be, and is often surprising in her concrete grasp of what is important.

Overall, I found this to be a wonderfully interesting tale, making me care for the characters, and what happened to them. I think that this is a great story, one that is sure to please the discriminating reader. Is it the story of steadfast faith? No, not really, it's the story of real people trying to live their lives in a world more complicated than they had thought...just like the rest of us.
Introduction to a new series  Aug 19, 2007
"The Preacher's Daughter" is the first book in a new series by Beverly Lewis. It introduces Annie Zook and her friend Louisa Stratford. Annie is one of the Plain People, she and Louisa have been pen pals for years and now Louisa comes to visit Annie. Louisa is a typical, wealthy, middle class woman. However disgruntled with her last relationship, she comes to meet Annie for the first time then stays as she finds the Plain life uncomplicated and calmer.

I find the Amish lifestyle interesting and Ms Lewis' descriptions of their everyday life fascinating. I have read several of her other novels and enjoyed them. This time, however, I found the ending disappointing as she obviously was just setting up the next book in this series. I would have enjoyed it more if this novel had stood alone rather than just being an introduction to the series.
Endearing  Jun 26, 2007
The only thing I would recommend before purchasing this book is to buy the 3 volume set of Annie's People by Beverly Lewis. This is a fun, heartful way to delve into the life of an Amish girl who is torn between her culture and her drive to explore beyond the strict rules of the Amish people. I feel like I know the characters in the book, and have enjoyed reading the whole series (I am almost done with the second book). I can't wait to see what Annie will choose to do with her life. It's an easy read. I highly recommend it!
