I am so excited to be a part of this blog tour! I’ve been reading Beth’s books for years, and love them all. But this series in particular, I’ve really just devoured it. I just cannot believe it is over! I am going to miss these characters so much!

An unexpected death and a mysterious visitor unsettle Charlotte, and she begins to question her faith and her choices.
Daniel loves Charlotte and wants to share his life with her, even it if means leaving the only world he’s ever known. But as he walks alongside of her through her struggles, his own world is turned upside down when a loved one receives a grim medical diagnosis and a prodigal relative returns home. Will Charlotte and Daniel’s relationship succumb to the many pressures around them, or will their faith and the strong community around them allow them to weather the storms of their own lives in order to build a life together?
I have been waiting for this book ever since I finished reading book two. I have to say, this book effected me more emotionally then the other two. There was just so much going on, and it’s a good thing the box of tissues was nearby! I can only imagine how Ms. Wiseman must have felt writing this book, and pouring her heart and soul into these characters. The turmoil, the sadness, fear, frustration, and so many other emotions filled the pages of this book. As much as there was a lot of negative things going on, there was also a lot of good. Beth Wiseman has mastered the art of keeping the readers uplifted during difficult times. There may be tears, but it is because you have become a part oft his fiction family, and when they are suffering, you are suffering!
This book also provides a lot of transformation for characters. Some you see up close and personal, and some you sort of just see a small portion of. I have to say, Andrea was my favorite character. I’m not sure if it’s because I like to root for the underdog or not, I just found myself connecting to her. I do wish her circumstances had been different, but I like everything that she did in the book. I think if Beth were to start a new series, it would be neat to check back in on Andrea and see how she is doing with her new life.
There’s the old saying that all good things must come to an end, and most of the time I can agree with that. But I am going to be so sad that I won’t be visiting Hannah again, or having the image of pickled oysters in my mind! By the way, if you are hungry any time soon, just give this book a try – you may find that after all the pickled oyster discussion you won’t be hungry after all! But if you’re an Amish fiction fan, or have enjoyed any other of Beth’s books, you will love this one. Just make sure you’ve read the other two books in the series firsr so that you know who is who!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
