The Missing by Beverly Lewis

 Description: Twenty-one-year-old Grace Byler longs to find her missing mother and to uncover the secret that drove her to leave them three weeks before. Grace suspects the reason has to do with her father and his reserved, uncommunicative ways. This conviction led Grace to break off her betrothal to her quiet, staid beau, and she is now resigned to remain single. But when the young Amishman she thought was courting her best friend takes a sudden interest in her, Grace is befuddled and wonders if he can be trusted. "Englisher" Heather Lang has come to Amish country to relive fond memories of her mother and to contemplate a grave medical prognosis of her own. While in Bird-in-Hand, Heather meets Grace Byler and the two young women strike up a fast friendship, amazed by how well they click. Following the only clue they have, Grace and Heather travel together in hopes of finding Grace''s mother and bringing her home. Will they find what they''re looking for...or something much more?

Review: It was much better than the first book in the series, which seemed to drag a bit. It was interesting to see how the storylines in the book are starting to pick up both on the Lettie and Heather side of things, with the Grace storyline sort of just linking the two of them. Hopefully the third book, which is due out in April, will tie up the storylines.
