Publisher Description:
 
When schoolteacher Jodi Winfield goes for a morning run, the last thing she expects is to find a disheveled little girl all alone on the side of the Pennsylvania road, clad only in her undergarments, her chubby cheeks streaked with tears. Jodi takes the preschooler home with her, intending to find out where she belongs. But Jodi is mystified when no one seems to know of a missing child, and the girl herself is no help, since she can't speak a word of English. It's as if the child appeared out of nowhere.

When Jodi returns Sarah to her family, she is drawn to the simple life of the Old Order Amish.  Amazed at how well the Amish children take to her, the bishop offers her a temporary teaching position at their one-room school house - just until the Amish teacher is available.  Jodi moves in with Sarah's family during her teaching time and slowly begins to seek God once again after her sister's death.

This book is a wonderful story of God's redeeming love and grace.  How many times do we feel like God has forsaken us? Left us alone in our grief? Depression? Loneliness?  Beverly Lewis has reminded us that God has a reason and a purpose for everything we go through.

I received a complimentary copy of The Guardian from Bethany House Publisher for my honest review.

Blessings,

    Hope you are well!
