Harvey's antics stir up the entire schoolhouse, and his fondness for Lily gets under Aaron Yoder's skin. Add in a mischievous dog rescued by Lily's brother, an old Shawnee Indian and a mother bear, and a secret Lily's mother is keeping, and you've got a recipe for laughter, love, and big surprises.
Girls ages 8 to 12 will love navigating the changes in Lily's world with her in this final book in the sweetly simple Adventures of Lily Lapp series.

My Review: 
As many of you know I absolutely Love Amish books. This book was all centered around this young girls life. To say "Change is brewing" is like saying you are putting on some mild coffee. Just let me say. WOW!!!

Lily Lapp is a character that you just fall in love with but all along seeing the mischief and mystery that is all about to happen. 

The story line is easy to follow. Did not want to put it down after the first page. The spins, turns, mystery, animals, secrets, as well as other kids that bring in jealousy. Then add in all the love you could ever need. That is  A Surprise for Lily!    

I whole heartedly recommend this book to all ages as well as both of the Authors of this wonderful story. Their writing style keeps you wanting more. And that my friends is my review for this book.

So for the reasons above I will be giving, (if I had a higher rating I would,)  my Breath of Life rating of:

Five Clock Rating!!! 

Disclosure: I did receive the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and or review. But the Opinions are my own and yours may differ.

About the Authors:  

Suzanne Woods Fisher is the bestselling, award winning author of fiction and non-fiction books about the Old Order Amish for Revell Books, host of the radio-show-turned-blog Amish Wisdom, a columnist for Christian Post and Cooking & Such magazine.

Her interest in the Amish began with her grandfather, who was raised Plain. A theme in her books (her life!) is that you don’t have to “go Amish” to incorporate the principles of simple living.

Suzanne lives in California with her family and raises puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind. To her way of thinking, you just can't life too seriously when a puppy is tearing through your house with someone's underwear in its mouth.
