Book 2 of Abram's Daughters. Spanning three generations, the Abram's Daughters series paints a powerful family portrait of four Amish sisters growing up in Gobbler's Knob, Lancaster County. In Book One, The Covenant, when oldest sister Sadie is beguiled by a handsome, dark-haired "Englischer," it is younger sister Leah who suffers from her sister's shameful behavior. In Book Two, The Betrayal, Leah and her beloved Jonas are separated for half the year when he accepts a long-desired carpenter's apprenticeship in Ohio. They are confident that by letter and heart-felt promises, their love is strong enough to survive the temporary separation. But never could they have foreseen the bitter test facing them and their families.
Leah and Jonas are confident their love is strong enough to span a half-year separation, but more than time and distance conspire to keep them apart.

This is a really good book and a good continuation of this series, although this book is extremely sad (I read the 4th and 5th books first...I know how everything works out in the end, but this book was still sad). It is so well written that when I got to certain parts, I just couldn't take it anymore and would start to cry--and I'm not usually like that. This is probably the saddest book in the series, but I'm happy with how it all turns out in book five, especially after all the discouraging parts, getting frustrated with a couple of the characters and whatnot. :) Overall, this series is a very good read, and I would highly recommend it.
