"The Atonement"
Beverly Lewis

Wrapped up in her mistakes of the past and unable to forgive herself and others, Lucy Flaud throws herself into doing volunteer work.  The more she can do, the more she is able to forget what happened during her running around time.  That is until something makes her remember.

Her father begins going to an Englisch grief counseling group at a nearby church.  He becomes friends with an Englisch young man who is curious about the Amish way of life.  Mr. Flaud invites Dale to visit their farm where he meets Lucy.  It looks as if history is going to repeat itself when Dale and Lucy start spending a lot of time together, seemingly to help a homeless young woman and her little boy.  

What about Tobe Glick?  He has loved Lucy forever but she feels she cannot date him because of her past.  Tobe is moving with his family to Colorado.  Will Lucy ever see her friend again?  

Will lucy ever accept God's forgiveness and can she forgive herself?  Read Beverly Lewis' novel and discover what happens when you accept God at His Word.

I enjoyed this book very much.  I will have to admit that it takes many chapters before you find out what has happened to Lucy and her father.  At times, this was a little frustrating.  I appreciate Mrs.  Lewi's emphasizing the King James Bible in her novel.  This was a great story on God's forgiveness.  I would give this book 5 stars.
