I really loved the conclusion to this series. This made me laugh and cry. It was hard to put down. This ties up any lose ends. I would love to see some of the other characters get their own stories. I received this from the author for a fair and honest opinion.
Wow, what a great book. A real tear jerker for me. This book continues with Jenny from the second book "The Road Home." I can't find the words to describe this book. It was heartbreaking reading about Jenny and her tragic outcome but she eventually pulls through with her writing. I had tears of sadness and happiness from reading this book. I didn't want this series to end and I was wishing that a new series could be written with Jenny's daughter Rachel. I highly recommend this book to everyone. I also recommend you to read "A Quilt for Jenna" (book 1) and "The Road Home" (book 2). Thank you, Patrick E. Craig for three wonderful books in this series.
I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher/author in exchange for my honest review.
"Jenny's Choice" is the third and final installment of the Apple Creek Dreams Series, and the story has come full circle. It is the summation of Jenny's journey through life, and the events that have molded her into the woman she has become. Jenny possesses a penchant for writing, and after great tragedy threatens her entire existence she eventually begins journaling. Restoration begins as the floodgates of her soul open and she places her stories and thoughts on paper.
The magnitude of her grief is reflected through much of her writing, and the story behind her mother's Rose of Sharon quilt and everything it represented gives credence to the depth of her mother's faith. She continues with her father's story, his strength of character and the devotion he possessed through time in the military and his renascence into the Amish community. His faith and his love for his family were unprecedented, quietly reflected by a glimmer in his eyes. The magnitude of Jenny's love for Jonathan is poignant, and their daughter, Rachel, is the symbol of their love.
"Jenny's Choice" is absorbing, a story told with such strength and depth of feeling that I walked hand in hand with Jenny throughout the events in her life story. Patrick E. Craig is masterful at creating a work of fictional art that evokes the most sensitive emotions, revealing endearing characters with intensity and perception. His voice throughout this series reveals a deep spiritual relationship with God, and a faith that flows into his characters. Patrick is a proficient author who brings the written word to life and reveals the innermost feelings and sensitivity through his characters. The life stories of Jenny's family and their relationships and devotion to one another developed into masterpieces of character.
