Series: Kauffman Amish Bakery
The author tells the story by using multiple viewpoints that allow readers a peek into the mindset of an Amish community. Readers will be caught up in character conflict as they watch sparks fly between Miriam and her former love interest. It is this relationship in particular that reveals the most artfully-woven plot points. Readers are sure to be properly frustrated by the author's page-turning ability to keep her main characters apart.
The central portion of the plot revolves around Miriam and her desire to be reunited with her Amish roots. Though she is continually shunned by her family, Miriam slowly wins her way back into the hearts of her friends and even manages to catch the eye of her old sweetheart, Timothy Kauffman. But the opening of old wounds and the unraveling of a deceitful web leaves Miriam's future hanging in the balance. Ultimately, Miriam must decide if she will return to her Amish upbringing or permanently abandon it in favor of a comfortable English life.
Miriam Lapp is a sweet, confused human who desires to be accepted and loved by those people she cares for most. While her long-suffering nature can make her seem almost too perfect at times, her loyalty to family and concern for friends is admirable. It is also notable that minor characters who are initially portrayed as antagonists are, in the end, only well-meaning members of what is essentially a somewhat dysfunctional, Amish family. Overall, the theme of Clipston's latest tale solidly upholds biblical truths, such as those found in Colossians 3:13: Bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.
Reading A Place of Peace was an experience that can be compared to eating a whoopie pie. The first few bites were tasty, but by the time the entire dessert was consumed, I was left wondering if Clipston's creation was just a little too sweet. However, unlike the empty calories of a whoopie pie, this Amish treat does offer up some nutritious value. Generous portions of Christian love and forgiveness, along with liberal dashes of loyalty and friendship, are found throughout the book. Top it all off with a dollop of romance, and you have a recipe for a story that any Beverly Lewis or Wanda Brunstetter fan will be sure to enjoy. Kari Travis, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
