Anna MaeAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Home All Along by Beth WisemanMarch 28, 2018Anna MaeAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Another sweet story from Beth about two couples, Charlotte and Daniel, and Annie and Jacob, and their journeys learning to love God and each other. They are from two different worlds - Amish and English - which route to take? Human stubbornness, and doubt hindered and yet taught them valuable lessons concerning life, true love and happiness.
The sadness of the loss of two beloved Amish "Moms" whose lives displayed rich wisdom touched all of them and continues to live on and influence their lives.
If you enjoy Amish stories, you will love this one and even learn from it. The Amish way is a bit strict but refreshing in that possessions and convenience aren't as important as loving and serving God and others. Community and helping each other is all important.
These two couples struggle and suffer but in the end commit to living happy satisfied lives in the Amish community.
Thank you Fiction Guild for another fine book full of valuable lessons.
Amanda B5 Stars Out Of 5Loved it, as usualMarch 12, 2018Amanda BQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was introduced to Beth Wiseman and the Amish Secrets series through the Thomas Nelson Fiction Guild. I usually don't seek out Amish fiction, but after reading the first two books in the series, I searched this one out. I just had to know how the series ended. I loved the conclusion of Charlotte and Daniel's story, the new relationship Charlotte develops with her sister and niece, and the other sub plots. We see how difficult situations happen to good families, and we see second chances and healing.
Rhonda Nash-hallMadison Heights VAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Still my favorite author for a reason!March 2, 2018Rhonda Nash-hallMadison Heights VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There's a reason whyBeth Wiseman is one of my favorite authors....she is always writing the perfect novel to make me feel happy....to take me away from the world of stress and let me feel like I'm on a vacation! One of my favorite vacations has been to Amish Country. I have visited Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, three time with my family, and I've been to Ohio's Amish Country once, and those have created some of my best family memories.
Faith is very important in the lives of Charlotte and Daniel, and they are each willing to give up the life and faith community they have known and appreciated to be together. My faith has always been vital to me, but it would be very difficult to give up my faith for someone. But love is a strong motivator, isn't it? Readers will eagerly flip the pages of this third book in the Amish Secrets series to see what happens in the lives of Charlotte and Daniel.
I am rating this book 5 ***** stars and highly recommend to lovers of Amish and Christian fiction.
I received a complementary copy of this novel from netgalley and Thomas Nelson Publishing in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.
Jeanine5 Stars Out Of 5Beautifully WrittenFebruary 10, 2018JeanineQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Charlotte lives the life of the Amish in so many ways, but she hasn't taken her vows. She is accepted into the community, welcomed to worship with the women, and even finds love with an Amish man. Still, she can't quite find it in herself to give her heart fully to the Lord. When her mother passes away, her sister Andrea, who Charlotte wasn't even aware of until recently, shows up at the funeral. Andrea has a flashy car and wealthy adopted family- all the trappings that Charlotte never had. And just as quickly, she disappeared. Charlotte was disappointed because Andrea was her only family left and she'd hoped to be able to have a relationship with the sister she'd never had since she was very small. But before long, Andrea was back, and this time, she brought her baby. And her boyfriend's car. That she'd stolen. Things weren't as they seemed for Andrea, and things were about to get very interesting for Charlotte. How would the Amish community react to this new development? And could Charlotte find the courage to give heart fully, not only to her sister, or to her boyfriend, but to the only one who would never turn from her? This story was a beautiful reminder of God's love and how He is with us through all of the times of our lives, even when we don't think He's there.
