Wonderful conclusion to the three books series, "The Courtship of Nellie Fisher". Loose ends are tied as Beverly Lewis brings all the characters together when losses are experienced and this Amish Community back in 1967 finds a way to relate to each other despite the differences among themselves. Wonderful series, and well written. Don't miss this grouping if you love Amish Fiction.
This is not my favorite Beverly Lewis book. The end is wrapped up too neatly as if she knew she didn't have enough for a fourth book but didn't want to take more than the 247 opages of this book to tell the story. I thought this series ended at two books and in retrospect, I think it should have, at least for me!
