This is the third book in an amazing series. What I love about this book and all Tricia's work is the spiritual thread wolven throughout every page. I love and read Christian fiction for this reason. Not only have I grown to love the characters from this series, but I have learned and grown spiritually from them. I would recommend anyone interested in this book read the two previous ones. This is a complex story of family, friends, sacrifice, finding God, and LOVE:-)

Format: Paperback
Marianna is headed back to Indiana to be with her brother and his future wife, and to marry Aaron. She has convinced herself that he is the man she is supposed to marry. He is a good man and follows the ways of their Amish community; he has built her a home and promises her love and affection.

Marianna has changed though since she has lived among the Amish in Montana. She has learned more about a personal relationship with Jesus and how freeing that is. She has also learned how to live among the Englisch. When she returns to Indiana she once again feels the burden of being watched by her neighbors. She wants to be a good wife to Aaron, but she also cannot deny her growing relationship with the Lord. Another thing she cannot deny is her longing for Montana and one particular person-Ben.

Ben has gone on tour with his music. He's not happy about once again being thrust into stardom with all of its temptations. He also is longing for Marianna, the girl that he wrote his number one song about. All over the country people are hearing his song to her; it is the highlight of each concert he performs.

As Ben and Marianna are separated by many miles they both must learn to trust in the Lord more than they ever have before. Both must make life-changing decisions in order to follow what the Lord has revealed to each.

I really enjoyed this last installment of the Big Sky series. Marianna has such a sweet spirit. She desires only to follow the Lord and do His will, which sometimes goes against all of the rules of the Amish community she was brought up in. I admired her ability to be sweet and stand firm in her convictions.

Marianne is going to help her brother Levi and his girlfriend in Indiana . She goes back with Aaron and wants to wait til after Naomi has her baby before she sets a date with Aaron. She finally sees the house that Aaron built for her. She is still in love with Ben, but fighting it because hse wants to make the right choice. Ben is the English man who was the driver when they first came to town.

Ben song about Marianna becomes famous on the radio. He also starts touring with his song. He is still thinking about her and wants to remain faithful to her even though there have been no promises made to each other.

While in town with the other Amish, she realizes that she has changed but not everyone sees that. There is more gossiping since she doesn't adhere to the rules of this Amish town. She misses Montana and Ben. While there she also finds out that there some secrets around her. She also meets some one who had an attraction to her mother.

I wanted to read this book to see how it ends, and who Marianna picks to spend the rest of her life. I had read and reviewed all the books in this series on the blog. This was a fast read and I stayed up late to see who she picks. There are some recipes again in the back of the book.

Htb12 seems to have read other Tricia goyer books but I wonder if you have read the 2 previous books prior to beyond hopes valley?This book read alone I guess would not be a good read if you do not know the storyline up to this last book, you didn't explain if u had. The series was wonderful! The best Amish series I have read . The setting and story line had me hooked right from the first page of the first book. I loved the characters , as I came to the end of beyond hopes valley I was hoping there might be a fourth book. I was hoping to read an excerpt. I am disappointed that Its done. I was hoping to read more of Ben and Marianna's story as they marry and start a family. I will miss reading about them.

I enjoyed reading about Marianna's life back in Indiana, as she and Aaron prepare for their wedding. The people there sure made things hard for her. I enjoyed the letters scattered throughout the book, and trying to decide whether Ben or Aaron wrote them. The end of the series was satisfying, though I'm sad there won't be any more books about Marianna. I would love to see a book about Naomi & Levi, as well as more about Aaron, Rebecca, Ike, Annie, maybe even Marianna's Aunt Ida (what turned her into such a judgmental sourpuss anyway?!) and others from the series... Mostly, I'm sad to see the series end.

With thanks to B&H Publishing via NetGalley for my review copy.

Marianna Sommer knew she had changed from living in Montana. She was no longer just following traditions that were passed down from one generation to the next. She had a personal relationship with Jesus. She was reading her Bible and praying on her own. She experienced a closeness with God that she never thought possible. Now she was back in Indiana wondering how she was going to fit in again. Here, rules and traditions were above all else. One of those rules hit her square in the face the moment she arrived back in Indiana.

At the train station, a little English girl had gotten hurt. Marianna quickly went over to help her. She saw the staring eyes of the Amish around her looking in disbelief. The Amish didn't associate with the English in Indiana like they did in Montana. At least she had Aaron Zook with her and the life they planned to spend together. They would be married soon. Marianna came back to Indiana to be with Aaron and help her brother, Levi, and his girlfriend, Naomi, with their wedding plans. She also was there to help Naomi throughout her pregnancy and after the baby was born. Levi had left the Amish, but returned when he discovered that Naomi was pregnant.

Aaron had also dated Naomi. They had a short lived relationship when Levi left the community and Marianna and her family left the state. But Aaron loved Marianna more than anything. He was happy Marianna agreed to be his wife. He would do anything to be with her. Aaron had already built the house where they would live. He was glad to back to the life he knew in Indiana. He was an upstanding member of the community.

Marianna longed for Montana, her family and English friends still there, and mostly for how she felt so close to God.
