Naomi Shrock is content with living with her family and her son Davey. That is until Cap Stoltzfus moves into the area and starts giving Naomi a little attention. The beginning of this story starts out slow, and difficult to keep your attention. But wanting to know the end results for Davey and Naomi, I kept reading and it gets much better. Naomis character got on my nerves some because she has so self confidence, but this was a good thing because it kept me reading to see if that would change. Even when Cap shows interest. I like Cap. He was very good with Davey, and Davey needed the man in his life.
And then he couple shows up claiming to be family of Daveys and wanting to claim the land belonging to Davey. To me this entire scene was off or something. It was too fast happening and almost no details. It just didnt seem to fit, but maybe thats the way things happened back in the 1840s. Overall this is a very nice read. And a nice ending to this series. I encouraged you to grab a copy for yourself. You will enjoy the few hours of entertainment!

This is about Naomi Schrock and her little boy Davey. Along with Cap Stolztfus.
Naomi and Cap have different views of parenting. Despite their differences, love is stronger. A delightful book and series!

I just finished reading Naomi's Hope, the third and final book in the series. The whole series is great. The bits of Indiana life in the 1840s, plus great characters kept me so interested. I really hate to see this series come to an end. I highly recommend this series.
Fitzysmom4 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMJuly 13, 2017FitzysmomQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I have been eagerly waiting for Naomi's story since the beginning of this series. Naomi is such a gentle and giving person and to see her be passed by time after time was heartbreaking. But of course we know that everything comes in God's timing.
It's looking like Naomi is going to have to be content to just be a momma to her adopted son Davey. A husband doesn't seem to be in her future. But just as she's determined to set that dream aside her family gets a new neighbor in the form of Cap Stoltzfus. He's kind and handsome to boot so of course Naomi is sure he would have no interest in her. Naomi is selling Cap short. He sees beyond her physical imperfections and into her heart.
Naomi's Hope was a wonderful conclusion to the Journey to Pleasant Prairie series. Lots of intriguing situations that remind us that the Amish communities face many of the same issues as the rest of the world. Some people are deceitful and can't be trusted. While others can be truthful and very trustworthy. Discerning the difference between the two is a blessing the Holy Spirit brings.
This series left me wanting to know what happens next in the lives of these interesting people. I hope that Jan sneaks some of them in the next series she writes!
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
centraleast25 Stars Out Of 5EnjoyableJuly 7, 2017centraleast2Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I liked reading this book and learning more about the Amish in the 1800's. Many things have not changed for them in this time, but it was interesting to see them in this context. Naomi had tried to get things back together and start a live with her adopted son Davey. She is doing what she can to make things work, but that gets changed when Cap enters her life and takes a liking to Davey. She must now decide what she wants to happen and trust that she will make the right choices.
