    1. Child of Mine by David and Beverly Lewis is the story of a woman who is looking for her daughter who was kidnapped as a baby. Jack is the uncle of Nattie who he is raising after the death of her parents. Laura is the Amish nanny who has been with Nattie four years and is more like family to her than a babysitter. San is Jack’s sister who sometimes stickers her nose in where she shouldn’t but seems to have good intentions. Their lives all intertwine when Kelly pursues a lead from her private [...]


    2. It's not very often that I tell other readers that a book is awesome, because when I do, I don't take the term lightly. For me to rank a book this way, I need to have my interest held all throughout the story; there needs to be several subplots expertly woven together with a few surprise twists that I don't anticipate. The characters need to be portrayed in such a way that I'm invested in their lives, while I come to care for them. When the book is finished, I still feel their presence and circu [...]


    3. Child of Mine was my second foray into Christian fiction and my first time reading a book by the authors. While the premise piqued my interest I found the end less than satisfying. The story follows Jack the father of eight year old Nattie adopted as an infant and Kelly who's baby daughter, Emily, was kidnapped around the same time. So ya see where it's goingJack is a pilot who runs a successful small business during the day and spends his evenings dating various women in an effort to find a mom [...]



    4. This was my first book I've read by Beverly Lewis, as I'm just getting into Amish fiction. I loved it. (Although I don't think that this book should even really be classified as an Amish fiction book - Nattie has an Amish nanny (view spoiler)[ who eventually leaves(hide spoiler)]. That's it.) Nattie was the sweetest little kid. She just made me smile. :) (view spoiler)[ I wish that Laura had stayed with the Livingstons. She was sweet.(hide spoiler)] I really liked Jack and Kelly. Basically all t [...]


    5. Beverly Lewis is easily my favorite author of Amish Fiction and I eagerly await her new books. Child of Mine however, is not going on my shelf for rereading. I really struggled with this one. I liked the characters of Jack and Natalie and Laura. I never did connect with Kelly and found her part of the story implausible, especially wealthy benefactors who fund her search and her unorthodox and dishonest ways of getting DNA from potential children. The feel of the book is different than her others [...]


    6. Combining their efforts for a solidly entertaining read, husband and wife David and Beverly Lewis offer up an intriguing story in their latest book "Child of Mine". What would you do if your baby daughter was kidnapped? How long would you search before you gave up, if you did at all? Would you ever be able to move on? The authors have tackled this difficult "what if" scenario through the eyes of character Kelly Maine, and have done a wonderful job at dealing with something so heartbreaking while [...]


    7. I had the privilege of reading Child of Mine by David and Beverly Lewis. I love Ms. Lewis’ books and I knew I would thoroughly enjoy this book too. I read it in one day - not because it was too short, but because I had to figure out how it all ended. It was great - it had enough twists and turns in it that I was surprised up until the very end. I didn’t suspect the outcome which made it even better. Yet, it wasn’t the suspense of the book - it was the way Ms. Lewis and David wrote the char [...]


    8. This was a long book. I think the story could of been told in a 100 pages less. It had some great parts in it and a few that I wonder why it was there.We start with 2 main stories. Kelly, who is looking for her daughter that was kidnapped 9 years ago. In Kelly's life is Chet and his wife and the PI, Ernie, who are all trying to help Kelly find her daughter God's way. Oh almost forget Melody. Kelly's story starts with her being all consumed with finding her daughter then its like she quits but th [...]


    9. Going back and forth with how to rate this! I hate when I can't decide between half and whole stars! Overall I loved the story and the end was a surprise. For some reason I never grew to like Kelly, but others might very well like her. Jack and Nattie's relationship was sweet and I smiled at nearly all their conversation. I'm so glad to finally read a book where the hero has the name Jack. That and him being a fight instructor won me over :) Laura, Nattie's nanny, is probably my favorite charact [...]


    10. I got 99 problems and Amish romance novels are one of them. I don't go purposely looking for them or anything and more often than not I get kind of angry at the authors for assuming the Amish are these perfect, angel like creatures who fall into gentle, totally G rated love with each other and never experience problems worse than pissing off the bishop by daring to read a magazine. But that's also kind of why I love them. There's something comforting about the idea that faith in god and living a [...]


    11. I really enjoyed this book. Flight instructor Jack Livingston has been raising his eight year old adopted neice, Natalie, since the accident that took her p parents lives. When he travels she is cared for by her Amish nanny, Laura Mast, who loves her like she's her own. Eight years ago, Kelly Maines baby was kidnapped. Determined to find her child, Kelly persues every lead to its bitter end. And now one last clue from a PI there is a young girl miles away who fits that profile. Can it be Kelly's [...]


    12. Read this on the KindleI enjoyed this book you had two stories which intertwined you had Jack who has adopted his adopted Niece Natalie after his brother & wife were killed Laura who is Amish she is the NannyThen you have Kelly looking for her daughter who was kidnapped when was only a few weeks old now nearly 9 years later she still looking Is Natalie Kelly's daughter This has a very good twist at the end with a nice ending


    13. Wow, what an ending! I did NOT see that one coming. David & Beverly Lewis have outdone their writing style again with this carefully woven tale of intrigue, betrayal, and deceit.


    14. Great readLove reading her books. Lots of twists to her stories but always a fantastic ending. Never what you excpect. Highly recommend.


    15. Read this as a book club selection. Not terribly thrilled by this -- I'd give it a 1.5 star rating if only for the "twist" ending, but boy, was it rough to get there. The details were a bit pointless: we got pages on what flavors of Pop-Tarts Nattie likes, and we only got a mention towards the end that Jack had recovered from an earlier alcohol problem. Wait, what? You want to maybe re-think which situation might add more depth and insight to your characters (and hint, expand on those situations [...]


    16. Despite the Amish lady on the cover, this isn't really an Amish book, hence the reason it is shelved as Christian Fiction. This is the story of a guy named Jack and a girl named Kelly and a kid named Nattie. Hilarity ensues. Okay, not really but I kind of felt like I was in a bit of a rom com what with hapless Jack trying to fix everything.It wasn't a terrible book. Though it often felt like it was the second in a series. I'm usually pretty good about telling these things and so I was surprised [...]


    17. ★★★I enjoyed the book and had second guessed myself a few times when trying to figure out the mother of young Nattie. This book does not directly involve the Amish lifestyle as Lewis other books are. But it still had some which made it very enjoyable as it isn't a normal Amish book but still affect the characters within the story.This book is about a young woman looking for her lost daughter. Years ago, her stoner ex-husband sold her baby and O'D leaving no trace of where her precious baby [...]


    18. Sometimes after closing a book at the end of the story you question 'what would you have done in this situation?" That is what I found myself doing with the main character's decision at the end of her years' long search for her daughter. Kelly Maines' daughter had been stolen as an infant and sold on the black market. A part of me understands the decision Kelly felt compelled to make, but the other part of me doesn't think I could have come to the same conclusion. This thought provoking story, i [...]


    19. this was an amazing book, but then, Beverly Lewis is an amazing writer! This time she teams up with her husband, David Lewis, to write a thoroughly captivating and emotionally gripping novel about a woman who has spent the last eight years looking for the daughter who was stolen from her by her husband, sold on the black market,and the money received put to use by purchasing the drugs that would ultimately kill him, along with the secrets he harbors about their baby's whereabouts. Meanwhile, Jac [...]


    20. It's always such a joy to read a Beverly Lewis book. She's a very thorough author, so I was fascinated to see that she wrote this jointly with her husband. I have no complaints. I read this book throughout a single day. I'm going to put it away for now, but I am certain that I will pick it up again in the near future. Knowing the ending, I would now like to read it through again with that knowledge and get the nuances that I know I missed, so I can get a better understanding of how all of the ch [...]


    21. I enjoyed some of the relationships in this book. I loved that Nattie gave Jack a stuffed animal every night to sleep with. Laura didn't really seem Amish to me but I liked her. Kelly felt a little creepy to me and I didn't like San at all. The storyline felt forced at times and I felt it could have been shorter. There was just something off with this book.


    22. Not very deep, and it took a lot of time to tell a story that wasn't very complicated, but appreciated the idea behind it: that a child doesn't have to be your blood to be your child, and a child of your blood could be better off being raised by different parents.Annoying that them seemed to live in a world where everyone was magically a Christian, but whatever.


    23. this is a really good book. Lots of twist and turns you don't see coming. Its the story of Nattie and her life. Who is her mother? What happens when things fall apart and you don't understand why.


    24. This was a fantasic read It wasn't focused on the Amish as most of her other novels, but I really enjoyed it. This book made me think and feel One of the best books I have ever read by this author. highly recommended


    25. I hadn't read a Beverly Lewis book in so long that I was afraid I might not like them as much as my younger self had…but as it turns out, Beverly Lewis is just that good of a writer. This book was precious.


    26. I was interested all the way through. There were quite a few surprises. The ending was what I thought it might be. I was a bit disappointed that it didn't go a different direction. There were many clues and difficult to put the book down. A happy ending was enjoyed by all.


    27. UpliftingI was caught off in the beginning by the suspense. It grabbed my attention. At first I thought I was reading a thriller. Good, believable characters. It was hard to put down.


    28. A hard to put down bookI loved it from beginning to end. I liked the fact that if she had let God instead og her trying to do it everything would have worked out in the end as it idid.


    29. Loved it. Good read. Could hardly put it down. Touching story of a mom's love and the sacrifice that true love gives.
