Release day review!

My review...

This is the final book in the series, though it could stand alone, and the focus is on Cindy. Returning readers will enjoy seeing familiar characters from the prior books. Things didn't go quite as I expected, but it was an enjoyable story and a nice conclusion to the series. Situations not always addressed in Amish fiction are tackled in this one (such as how the community may treat a member considering a relationship with an Englischer and how that comes into line with their personal and religious convictions). Characters are well developed. Clipston has a way with words that makes Cindy's struggles with finding where she fits relatable for many readers, who may find themselves crying, cheering, and laughing along the way. It's interesting to watch the characters grow spiritually, as well. Some parts were bit predictable, and there were a few lulls, but through it all, God's love and forgiveness is evident. This book is a good way to wrap up the series. On a fun side note, I loved Cindy's cows name!
