A Life of Joy {Kauffman Amish Bakery Series #4} by Amy Clipston

Book Description:  Eighteen-year-old Lindsay Bedford is struggling to figure out where she belongs. In the Amish community of Bird-in-Hand? Or in the English world like her older sister? Returning for an extended visit to her hometown in Virginia, Lindsay must reconnect with old friends, face family pressures, and take some surprising turns before she can truly find her way home.

My Review:  I've had the pleasure to read, The Kaufman Bakery Series 
by Amy Clipston.  It's one of my favorite Amish series!
If you've read books 1,2, & 3 then you know that Lindsay Bedford and her sister moved to Bird-In-Hand, Pennsylvania, after the their parents were killed in a car accident and are now living with her aunt, Rebecca and her family.
Now that Lindsay is eighteen she must decide if she should join the church {the Amish church, that is}.  Like many older teenagers, Lindsay, struggles with the what and how of her life.  She loves her family and doesn't mind the Amish way of life.  But is this life really for her?
Before she has to make a decision, Lindsay is asked by her parents best friends, the McCabe's, to come back to Virginia to help care for Trisha after she breaks her leg.  
After leaving Bird-In-Hand and living with all the modern conveniences, Lindsay realizes where she belongs.
Amy Clipston writes an excellent, smooth flowing story that makes the reader feel Lindsay's struggles and her triumphs.  This is not a run.of.the.mill Amish story. Oh!No!  This story has many delightful surprises!
