Product Description

Newlywed Matthew Zook is expanding his family's tack and feed store when a surprising property dispute puts the remodel on hold--and raises new questions about the location's mysterious past.

Decades earlier, the same building housed a clock shop run by a young Amish clockmaker named Clayton Raber. Known for his hot temper, Clayton was arrested for the murder of his beloved wife, a crime almost everyone--including his own family members--believed he'd committed, even after charges were dropped. Isolated and feeling condemned by all, Clayton eventually broke from the church, left Lancaster County, and was never heard from again.

Now the only way Matthew can solve the boundary issue and save his family's business is to track down the clockmaker. But does this put Matthew on the trail of a murderer?

A timeless novel of truth, commitment, and the power of enduring love, where secrets of the past give way to hope for the future.

"This heartwarming story calms the soul while reminding us of the kindness that still exists."

"I recently received The Amish Clockmaker and loved it. I was intrigued that it featured an Amish male character as the protagonist, which is rare in the realm of Amish fiction. That, plus it being a mystery that kept me turning page after page late at night."

    A decades old mystery A murder A border dispute

    Not exactly what you expect from an Amish novel

    Mindy Starns Clark and Susan Meissner definitely have a HIT on their hands!

    The story starts out innocently enough with a small dispute about the boundaries of property.

    But its not long before you will find yourself pulled into a mystery, and a mystery you would never expect from as plain and quiet a community as the Amish.

    Matthew Zook has little choice but to follow the clues and try to get to the bottom of this mystery that Mindy and Susan take us on.

    You wont want to put this book down at least until you get to the last page and you may find yourself disappointed when you reach that last page just because the story is over.

    A MUST read!

    I don't usually review a book, but this one was too good to pass by.

    I thoroughly enjoyed it and loved how it went back to explain the characters actions.

    What a wonderful book. I've read hundreds of Amish books and this is one of the best.

    I have enjoyed both Mindy Starns Clark and Susan Meissner's books so when they teamed up for The Men of Lancaster County series I was thrilled. The two women have joined voices to make this an intriguing set of stories that play to each of their strengths.

    The Amish Clockmaker is the final installment and I think it was my favorite. The story centered on a decades old mystery that slowly evolved to a very satisfying conclusion. The present day story is about Matthew Zook and his family. I enjoyed the father-son relationship so much. The two were very different yet they found a way to support and honor each other.

    The mystery comes about when the Zooks are remodeling and expanding the feed store. Years before the Raber family owned the land and were clockmakers but after a horrible family tragedy they sold the land to the Zook family. In the midst of remodeling and expanding the old clockmaker's shop Matthew Zook discovers some surprising circumstances and evidence about the son Clayton Raber. Before Matthew can continue to expand his feed store he must unravel the events of the past.

    This story will take you on a heart-rending journey of love, betrayal, forgiveness and healing. It is a story of learning to look beyond the surface to see the person and to understand what is behind their actions. I was totally overwhelmed by Clayton's faithfulness in the midst of such trials. The ending isn't your typical fairy tale happily ever after. It is much better than that. It is the picture of what Christ would have us base our lives on. Faithfulness. Hope. And above all else love.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

    A Delightful surprise

    I was provided an eARC from the publisher via NetGalley. Here is my honest review.

    I'm not sure how this book is classified: mystery, romance, romantic suspense. I am sure that it was very different from any other book I have read set in the Amish community, which is probably why I enjoyed it so much more than most of the books I read in that genre.

    I found the plot to be really interesting and the writing/story to be incredibly authentic. The authors did a great job exploring how Amish people today work through situations that arise from the English community.

    I don't want to say much so as not to give away any spoilers; there are serious issues that are dealt with in this book (pregnancy, mental illness as well as trust and forgiveness). Oftentimes I read a romance book in the Amish genre and it seems so perfectly idyllic, which is unrealistic.

    The one scene that resonates with me is when Clayton is speaking to his mother after she expressed displeasure towards his wife. He reminds her that Jesus did not require us to be perfect before he sacrificed himself on the cross. He has a deep faith and his view of accepting his wife where she is while wanting peace for her was so touching.

    I enjoyed this story immensely - I practically couldn't put it down. Since this is the third book in a series, I will be looking to read the previous books and will watch for future books as well.
