Rose Kauffman pines for prodigal Nick Franco, the Bishop's foster son who left the Amish under a cloud of suspicion after his foster brother's death. His rebellion led to the "silencing" of their beloved Bishop. But is Nick really the rebel he appears to be? Rose's lingering feelings for her wayward friend refuse to fade, but she is frustrated that Nick won't return and make things right with the People. Nick avowed his love for Rose--but will he ever be willing to sacrifice modern life for her? Meanwhile, Rose's older sister, Hen, is living in her parents' Dawdi Haus. Her estranged "English" husband, injured and helpless after a car accident, has reluctantly come to live with her and their young daughter during his recovery. Can their marriage recover, as well? Is there any possible middle ground between a woman reclaiming her old-fashioned Amish lifestyle and thoroughly modern man?… (more)

The final book in this trilogy and I enjoyed how the author brought this to a conclusion (it was the one I wanted, but at times I wasn't sure if things were going to work out the way they did). Once again, it was about two Amish sisters and their yearnings for real and lasting love. These three books could be written as one big book, so I encourage you to read them in the order written.

In this story Hen is still caring for her injured husband and hoping that their marriage can be saved. Loved the way the author brought this all about. Hen's sister Rose keeps trying to find love in those she dates, but something is always missing. And when a certain man moves back and seeks to become "fully Amish", Rose will finally find she can give her whole heart to this man. ( )

Two sisters must decide if love for a man will cause them to choose the Amish life versus the outside world.

A nice ending to this trilogy. I enjoyed all the characters and Mrs. Lewis writes in a way that you can picture the setting and feel the weather. ( )
