This story takes place in the beautiful meadows of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. 

Rose is a hurting young woman.  After the end of one relationship, she wonders if she will ever find the right Amish man to settle down with.  Even is she does find that right man, will she be able to forget the Bishop's foster son, Nick?  She wonders what the Lord has in store for her future.

Hen is taking care of her husband after his accident.  He has agreed to stay in her Amish home for now.  Hen knows that as long as her husband depends on her he will stay, but once he can take care of himself he will leave Mattie and her again.  Will her love for Brandon deepen as he stays and cause her to forget her faith?  Will Brandon ever recognize the need for Jesus in his life?  Does the Lord's plan for Hen include a united God fearing family?

Journey with Rose and Hen as they learn about forgiving, true love, happiness, and most importantly the greatness of the Lord's mercy.

This book was the last book to The Rose Trilogy Series and by far, the one I enjoyed the most after having read all three.  In this book, I learned new things about the characters that were shocking, but so very important.  There were many unexpected twists that made this book all the more enjoyable.  It was funny, sad, bittersweet, and had some clean romance in it.  Although the ending tied up all the loose ends, it was not a predictable read.  The author did a great job with this series' conclusion.

I would recommend this book to all who enjoy Amish fiction and all who enjoy a good read.  

I received this book as a free copy from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.

You can purchase this book at Amazon or CBD.

  1. I am excited to begin this series. I will let you know what I thought of it.


"May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer."
