With book in one hand and kleenex in the other (one of many), I just finished "The Guardian". With somewhat predictable situations but with the mystery of others, it was a really great read. Thank you Beverly Lewis for such a heart-warming story.

I found this book was an interesting look into the life of the Amish people. Jodi is not Amish but she finds the lost Amish child and befriends with the family and the community. It is through their example and friendship that she is able to come to terms with her sister's death and find her way back to her heavenly Father.

The contrast between her modern way of life and that of her new Amish friends was a fresh perspective that I haven't read before. I usually find reading Amish fiction to be like reading historical fiction - you quickly get used to the unusual way of speaking or doing everyday things because it fits in that period or that place. This time contrasting their lives constantly with Jodi's life made it an interesting read. The author also included interesting scenarios that I had never heard of or thought of before. An Amish jogging group? :)

I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Amish fiction. This will keep you interested and fascinated until the end.
