The Photograph by Beverly Lewis

In an Amish town in Lancaster, PA, three unmarried sisters live in the house their parents died in. The youngest, 18 years old, decides to try her hand at being English and leaves with only a note to explain. A carriage maker comes for a visit from Ohio and decides to help the family find the run-away girl.

Jed Stutzman finds Little Women on his train ride to PA with notes, comments and hearts desires written in the margins. A photograph is used as a bookmark. Truly  touched by the writings, he hopes to meet her. An amazing twist at the end. 4 stars. Christian Approved.
