I received a copy of Forever Amish from Litfuse in exchange for my review. All opinions listed are 100% my own.
This book is ultimately about forgiveness, and how lying can really do alot more harm then good. I found this book captivating. The book grabs you and keeps you wanting more.
One thing that I enjoy about Amish Fiction is it’s ability to take us to a culture and life that many of us are not familiar with, yet desire. It is about simplicity and community, something many of us don’t have because in today’s society it’s all about go, go, go and don’t get close to people for fear of rejection.
The first two books of the trilogy are Leaving Lancaster followed by Pennsylvania Patchwork, both by the same author. In the final installment, Sally is contacted by a young girl in the Amish community who is interested in buying the special breed of dog she breeds. However, it becomes apparent that Lizzie contacted Sally for reasons no one seems willing to share. Sally’s fiancée has been unconcerned for Sally’s father’s health or anything that matters to Sally including finding her mother. It seems Sally’s father, who she lovingly refers to as Pops, is withholding information and is unwilling or unable to tell about the past that might help Sally come to terms about living without a mother.
If you love Amish books, and love just a bit of suspense and mystery, then this book is definitely one you will want to pick up.
