By Beverly Lewis
“Jah, that was undeniably a difficult time, one that opened my eyes in countless ways. And my heart, most of all. It was a season of sorrow and searching, of questions and answers. It was the summer of my first love.”
– Maggie Esh, The First Love

Sweet-spirited Maggie, a young Amish girl suffering from chronic health issues, deeply desires to live a regular life with her loving and wholesome community. In this coming-of-age tale, Beverly Lewis masterfully takes us on a hope-filled journey, elegantly grappling with the question ‘Does God still heal?’. Maggie’s story invites us to journey with her in the space between desire and demand for healing, as she braves the storms of her life, reignites her passion and faith in Jesus, and blossoms into the young woman she was created to be.
The First Love is a truly inspiring, hope-filled, and delightful book.
