As with The Confession, I really enjoyed the "Englisher" side of the story, but I was really intrigued as Katherine started taking on more Amish ways of life and introducing them to her friends and staff. I thought the volunteer work she did was fantastic and I loved the way she started a quilting group and even invited some Amish neighbors to join in.

The characters were great in this book, though I did think it had a few too many subplots. I was happy to see Katherine's friend Mary finally get married but other than that, I didn't care about any of the other character's plots.

All in all, I thought this was a good conclusion to the series, though The Confession remains my favorite book of all three. What I wanted to have happen didn't, but I think the ending was a good compromise for the entire series. I should also add that this is probably my favorite series I've read so far by Beverly Lewis.

The books are hard to read because you want things to happen & it seems like everyone is making the wrong choices. The thing about this series is that it teaches you that sometimes when you have to make hard choices in life God will always look out for you. Some times you have to give up things for God & love, but God is always there to give you something better. If you still have not read them all you have to read them all to the end. You will be happy you did.

A great book. You must read the entire series if you read one. Plus don't forget the reunion book "October Song" which finishes the story.

Katherine Mayfield (aka Katie Lapp) has the fancy "English" life she's always wanted, and a handsome suitor, as well. Yet something still seems to be missing...

This is the third book in the trilogy; the first is The Shunning; the second is the Confession. I found that this book in the series doesn't stand well on its own; it really helps if you have read the first and second books.

A little "preachy" and too coincidental in parts, but overall, the series is an entertaining story about Katherine (aka Katie) and her loves, losses, and new life.
