Joshua’s Mission by Vannetta Chapman

What a wonderful story about grace, forgiveness, growth, and the importance of helping others. I had not heard a lot about Amish going on mission trips, and this book certainly opened my eyes to that. More importantly, it reminded me that we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.
I found myself connecting to each of the characters throughout the story. I felt Becca’s sorrow, Joshua’s determination, Alton’s free spirit, and Charlie’s love for others. The pages would not turn fast enough and I found myself getting upset whenever it was time to put the book down. Much like the first book in the series, I enjoyed how the story kept going, similar to life, unlike stopping at a good ending spot. This book dove in deeper and provided a more thorough storyline.
Through the descriptive words I could see myself in the middle of the hurricane, floating down the road. I could see myself riding the bus for hours before arriving at the missions site. I could feel myself worrying about Joshua’s younger brother Alton just as much as he was.
This is a book that will open your heart and mind, make you bite your fingernails in anticipation, and experience hope in the midst of tragedy.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review which I have given.
