After a devastating loss, Cindy Riehl is still searching for peace. Will she find it in the community she calls home—or will love send her down a new path? 

Over the last few years, Cindy Riehl—the youngest of the Riehl children—has watched her siblings find love and happiness in Lancaster County. But as her family has settled down and grown, Cindy has continued to grieve her mother, whose death left an enormous hole in her heart. Since that haunting day, Cindy has struggled to find peace and wonders if the community is the place for her—and if her faith in God will ever feel the same as it once did.

When a handsome and kind Englisher named Drew crosses Cindy’s path one surprising day, the two of them become fast and easy friends. Drew dreams of starting a family after some losses of his own, and before long, he and Cindy discover that their feelings for each other are romantic. As they spend more time together—often in secret—Cindy is drawn further and further away from the Amish community and the family she loves. In time, she is faced with a difficult choice that threatens to upend her world.

Will Cindy find contentment and love, and will she ever find restored comfort in God and her beloved community? In this final installment of the Amish Homestead series, we return to the charming town of Bird-in-Hand for a story of healing, family, and God’s perfect provision.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts
I am not sure if I am ready to say goodbye to these characters just yet. I have fallen in love with them all, as I do with all of Clipston’s characters, but these ones….these ones have a special place in my heart. The Riehl family has become more than just characters to me, and  visiting them again with Cindy and Drew’s story, really was like coming home after too long away. Seeing Cindy and Drew together was so fun, but I my heart ached for them and their difficult situation.

From start to finish, Clipston weaves hope, love, heartache, understanding and beautiful messages from God together to create a heart warming story. Grab a copy of this 4 star read now, and find your welcome at the Riehl’s door just like I did. They’ll welcome you with open arms and take you on a beautiful ride through Amish country. I can’t wait to see what Clipston has in store for us in her next books!
