The Orchard

Another touching read by Beverly Lewis.  She has a way with words.  Her books about the Amish shows her love for the people she writes about.  
Ellie and her brother learn valuable lessons in this story.  Unfortunately, we have to realize that everyone has free will.  We sometimes can see the error of their ways.  But lecturing to them won't change their mind. We have to sit back and let them make the mistakes. My mother warned me not to marry my 1st husband.  I knew what was best.  NOT!!

In this case, Ellie's brother, Evan, won't file as a conscientious objecter. He could as he was Amish.  But he was determined to serve his country.  He paid a major sacrifice but gained much from this situation.

Have you ever had to go through something that was difficult or emotional?  Did you learn anything about yourself?  

I suggest you pick this up.  A great story.  An example of a family's love for each other.
