Fair Warning: If you have the Ada’s House Trilogy, this book will seem eerily familiar to you.

And the irony is this: We have all three of these books already but having them all in one was just too good to pass up!

Like all of Cindy Woodsmall’s books, the Ada’s House trilogy (aka Hope Crossing) is wonderful!

The Hope of Refuge
I must admit that if this had been one of the first Amish fiction stories I had read, I might have put it down and never read another one.

But then, I was more than a little bit of a book snob in the beginning – blame it on the fact that the very first Amish fiction novel I read being AWESOME!

The first book of Cindy Woodsmall’s I read – A Season for Tending – spoiled me even further.

Fortunately I soon learned that the plain people are more like us “English” than most people realize and I began to calm down and enjoy the wonderful stories!

The Bridge of Peace
Even in her own community, being a tiny bit different has always set her apart. It’s a tough place to be – especially for a young Amish woman.

The more I read of this series, the more I LOVE! Cindy Woodsmall is a GENIUS!

The Harvest of Grace
Another wonderful story to round out this fantastic trilogy! Cindy has a particular talent for writing unique stories that pull you right in!

Her characters are so real, you feel like they are all your own friends, neighbors and family!

All together, a GREAT trilogy! And a fantastic way to have them all in one place! Thank You Waterbrook Multnomah!

I've enjoy reading Cindy Woodsmall's books over the past several years. She is such a gifted writer and I am fascinated with the Amish and the Amish lifestyle.

Hope Crossing is a compilation of the complete Ada House Series and includes The Hope of Refuge, The Bridge of Peace and The Harvest of Grace.

All three books are wonderfully written with deeply engaging characters and a rich story-telling that flowed from one book to the next. As I love reading series, I was thrilled that I could read all three back to back without any waiting for the next book to be released.

I came away from reading these books very relaxed, smiling and renewed. Contented in having read a really good book. In this case, having read THREE really good books! :)

A Big Thank You to Blogging for Books for the opportunity to review this book in exchange for a review. My review is a reflection of my own thoughts, feelings and impressions of this book. ( )
