Book Review: Levi's Will by W. Dale Cramer

Levi’s Will by W. Dale Cramer is an unforgettable story of man’s journey through life and to God. It is a story about sins of a father and a story about redemption.

As a young man, Will ran from this father and the Old Order Amish community. For years, Will continued to run from the Amish boy he was. He created a new identity and traveled across the world. The day he returned to the farm and to his father, he expected a reunion such as the prodigal son. But instead, his father rejected him. For years, Will tries to gain his father’s approval and love. It is not until his own son has jeopardized his life that Will begins to understand the truth of God and forgiveness.

If you want to be taken to another time and another world, this story swallows you up. The ways of the Amish, and the variations of different orders, come to live in this novel. You felt Will’s pain and wanted to steer him in the right direction. This is a very real reminder of how the sins of the father are passed from generation to generation and the hope for it all is love and forgiveness.

This is the first book I have read by W. Dale Cramer but will be sure to read more! If you enjoy Beverly Lewis, you will be sure to enjoy this!

This book, published by Bethany House, retails for $13.99, but right now, has it for $11.89.

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House publishers to provide and honest review.
