Product Description

Take a trip to Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, where you'll meet the women of the Kauffman Amish Bakery in Lancaster County. As each woman's story unfolds, you will share in her heartaches, trials, joys, dreams . and secrets. You'll discover how the simplicity of the Amish lifestyle can clash with the "English" way of life-and the decisions and consequences that follow. Most importantly, you will be encouraged by the hope and faith of these women, and the importance they place on their families. In A Life of Joy, the fourth installment in the series, eighteen-year-old Lindsay Bedford has reached a crossroads. Should she stay in the small Amish community she's known and loved for four years or return to the English life in her hometown in Virginia where her older sister is a college student? An extended visit to Virginia might just tip the scales as Lindsay reconnects with friends, joins a new church, works on her GED, and is pressured by her sister to stay and "make something of herself."

    What! Youre kidding me, right?

    Okay Ill level with you

    Amy Clipston has done it again! I thought when I saw the title of this book, that it meant one of two things that Jessica returns home and joins the Amish life, or that Lindsay would join the church and live, well, live a life of joy!

    What I didnt expect was for Lindsay to have doubts! She who has been determined all along is suddenly unsure of what direction to take. But Amy knows Lindsay better than me and she knew Lindsay needed time to decide the best for her future, especially since Jessica keeps hounding her to join the real world and making her feel bad about her current choices.

    Amy is such an amazing writer! As difficult as it is, I refuse to say anything else, so if you havent read the book, I wont spoil anything. Be sure to read it its great!

    (Okay, I will say one thing Amy leads you around lots of curves, all the way to the end and makes certain youre dying to read the next one and see what happens oh no, I cant stand it oh wait, the next one is available, so you wont have to worry about passing the time until it comes out, you can read it now! yay).

    Review: I loved the characters in this book. The story line was believable and engrossing with characters you would root for and care about. The book was the fourth in a series and had many reoccurring characters and a continuous storyline of faith and family. I have not read all of the other books aside from one novella for the holidays I found it was easy to ease into the characters and relationships that were explained and never overdone. The book was easy to read and enjoyable throughout the story. The only problem I had was that the end seemed abrupt and with more questions than answers. I realize that this is a book in a series, however many resolve the main theme in the current book. This ending would not deter me from reading more books by this author.

    I would like to thank Net Galley and Zondervan Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
