This is the third and final book in this series. I had wondered about Anna’s story after reading the first two books and I enjoyed reading this book.
What I liked: Even though this book had a sad undertone due to the fact that Anna was still grieving her late husband I thought it was well written and the author did a good job expressing Anna’s feelings. The romance between Anna and John was sweet and simple. This is not a deep book but enjoyable for sure. I also liked how some of the characters from previous series make appearances in this book. It is always fun to see how they are doing.
What I did not like: Not a lot I did not like. There was a few times I thought it was going a little slow but nothing major.
Over all a good book. You could read this book as a stand alone but it would be much better to start with book one and work your way through the series as they tie together nicely.
This was an enjoyable series. I enjoyed meeting the three cousins and their grandmother. All three books had subjects that can be uncomfortable to read about but the author did a great job of writing about them and incorporating them with love and hope. All the characters grew though out the books. Also each of the ladies got their time in the books. Sometimes when characters repeat in series past characters can dominate each book but this series we get to know them all equally. Also even though Leah the grandmother never has a first person telling she still finds some closer in the final book and I felt the series wrapped up well. If you like Amish fiction you will enjoy this series. I liked the covers of these books too. The colors where bright and the way the ladies faces and their craft and the horse and buggy are added in each cover was neat and the title of each book really fit the stories.
