My Review:

Genre: Amish fiction.

My Rating: 4 stars.

My Recommendation: 16 up. Warnings below.

My favorite character/s: Hmm, I guess that would have to be Sylvia, she was an interesting character and I liked reading about her but I kinda disliked her relationship with her beau. It was like it was doomed from the start. *shrugs* That may just be me though.

My Verse for Sylvia is Matthew 6:21
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (King James Version.)

My Thoughts: I liked this book, I really did. It's just I didn't love it . . . But that's all on me. In no way is that because of the author. She did a wonderful job with this novel and I look forward to the next book in the series! Let's just go with it's not my cup of tea. Though that ending was slightly surprising and I NEED to read the next one! If you like Amish books you definitely need to check this one out! There was a good bit of intrigue to go along with the rest of the story and the ending has me wanting to read the next book so bad right now!

I'm giving it 3 stars but if the whole book had been like the last page I would have given 5 stars.

Spoiler Below!

Warnings: A character is divorced.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review and am truly happy to provide it! All the thoughts are my own.

Another great book by Beverly Lewis! As always she pulls me in with characters that I can sympathize with and cheer on as they struggle through tough circumstances.
Definitely a must read! ( )

Normally, I'd give this story three stars. However, I've given her last few a pretty low rating, and I liked this one considerably better, so I'm basing this higher rating on that.

Some things I really enjoyed about the book: Earnest is easy to love, having an open, sensitive heart toward his family and such a sweet love for his wife. The family sees that the shunning is extreme and a man-made rule, instead of a God-made rule. The importance of personal prayer is emphasized. Titus is a respectful beau who doesn't throw baby fits.

Things that bugged me: Sylvia acts a little sensitive and immature, in my opinion, by having a chip on her shoulder about Titus' mom's influence. Don't get me wrong---I definitely think a man needs to be ready to leave and cleave if he's gonna get married---but I didn't see anything super detrimental about him considering the advice and wisdom of his parents. And, he was willing to compromise with Sylvia with a good attitude. Also, the twist at the end is just a little (ok, a LOT) too coincidental for the time, but whatever. I'm just glad Lewis didn't try to wrap up that twist in a few short pages. I'll pick up part two from the library tomorrow. ( )

The Tinderbox by Beverly Lewis

Sylvia Miller is an eighteen year old Amish girl. She discovers and old tinderbox in her Father's clock shop. She decides to open it, and what she finds inside holds a secret her Father has been hiding for decades. Soon the Millers life is turned upside down and life as they know (it) may never be the same.

The story moves at a fast pace with well developed characters. Set in Amish Country, I got the feel of what life was like for the Miller family. Ernest (her Father) and Rhoda (her Mother) are both likable as well as Sylvia. They are put through a lot, I wanted to see the family at peace and truly happy. Overall I enjoyed The Tinderbox and recommend to those who like Amish stories. ( )
