Book Description: Rose Kauffman pines for prodigal Nick Franco, the Bishop's foster son who left the Amish under a cloud of suspicion after his foster brother's death. His rebellion led to the "silencing" of their beloved Bishop. But is Nick really the rebel he appears to be? Rose's lingering feelings for her wayward friend refuse to fade, but she is frustrated that Nick won't return and make things right with the People. Nick avowed his love for Rose--but will he ever be willing to sacrifice modern life for her?Meanwhile, Rose's older sister, Hen, is living in her parents' Dawdi Haus. Her estranged "English" husband, injured and helpless after a car accident, has reluctantly come to live with her and their young daughter during his recovery. Can their marriage recover, as well? Is there any possible middle ground between a woman reclaiming her old-fashioned Amish lifestyle and thoroughly modern man?
My Review: Having read all of Beverly Lewis' books I was excited to read this third book and final book in the Rose Trilogy.
This is one of Beverly Lewis' finest series (in my opinion).
I was intrigued by all the drama in an Amish family! Guess it just goes to show us that all people are basically the same with some of the same "issues," no matter what our religious beliefs or the way we choose to live.
Rose Ann's employer seems to be hiding something? But what?!?
Will Nick leave the church? Oh, and it seems that Rose would like to be courted by Silas. Will Hen go back to her English husband despite the fact that he does not want to be Amish and Hen wants to go back to being Amish and a part of the church? Loved the life lesson of Hen's story.
So many issues, so many questions! This is a great-tastic read that seemed realistic simply because it shows us that once a decision or a promise has been made it affects every area of our lives.
As always Beverly Lewis brings a thought provoking read that deals with the heart, as well as, the spiritual side of all our decisions.
Even though each book can be read as a stand-alone read, I highly suggest that you read all three books to glean the true story.
