Another great read from author Amy Clipston. You fall in love with Miriam from the beginning. You hurt for her, cheer for her, all around feel for her throughout the third book in this wonderful series.
I love the Kauffman family. I wish I could somehow be adopted by them. I want to work in the bakery, dine at their family meal times, and be part of the love that they so willingly bestow on those around them.
This book was just as good as the first two in the series. I have enjoyed reading the entire series and find that once I get started in one of these books, it is very hard to put it down until I have finished it!
Two people who come to the will of God to overcome the challenges thats given to them through the hardships of death and predjudice.To give these challenges over to God and to bring friendship and love.
A Place of Peace is the third book in Amy Clipston's Kauffman Amish Bakery Series, and I hope it's not the last. It was fun to re-visit characters from the other stories and meet some new ones as well. (And there are surely more stories to be written about those characters.)
Miriam Lapp left her Amish community four years earlier and returns home when she learns of her mother's death. Her visit home -- which she hopes will be an opportunity to mend some relationships -- just seems to create more hurt and confusion for Miriam and some of her friends and family. She returns to her "English" way of life in Indiana but is torn more than ever about where she really belongs. When she is called back home again for another family emergency, she learns more about the power of forgiveness and how important it is to untangle lies, separate out the truth, and make important decisions -- no matter how difficult. Forgiveness and reconciliation shine through as important themes in this story.
As in the earlier books in the series, Amy shares several Amish recipes. I can personally recommend the Apple Butter Pie on page 201!
