"The Amish Clockmaker"
Wow this book like books one and two are like stories within stories, this series is unlike other Christian Amish fiction in that it's told through the eyes of the character duing parts of the book, and at the same time you will still get the romance, scripture, and simple life you are use too.
Matthew Zook wants to expand his families tack and feed store and after much prayer and contenpltion he is finally ready to take the step toward his future, only to find out at the last minute that a surprising land dispute could put a halt to his plans.
Clayton Raber the old clockmaker who lived in Matthew's homestead years prior and in fact his clockmaking business was at onetime Matthew's tack and feed now, left town after he was accused of killing his wife in a fit of rage. Matthew has a special feeling for Clayton since he grew up in his old bedroom, now can he find Clayton some 60 years later and make things right and fix the property dispute at the same time.
This book was a wonderful example of deep love and and faith. The message in this book was one of such deep understanding it will strick a cord with everyone. To love someone so deeply that you are willing to give up your own life to leave everything you know and believe behind is a wonderful act of god's grace. This series is truly a must read.
Matthew Zook wants to expand a building but needs to find the landowner first. The landowner is Clayton Raber who was excommunicated decades earlier because he was arrested for the murder of his wife, but then found innocent. However, when Clayton is shunned by his community he leaves and no one knows where he has gone. This is a problem for Matthew who needs to find Clayton or lose everything. And so he goes on a quest to find Clayton.
I loved this book. Not only was it the best out of this series (which were all excellent) but I really enjoyed the two stories within the one plot. And throw in a good murder mystery and you have a great story.
Normally, I read Amish fiction to completely unwind and read a simple story of faith and romance and many times it's on a very juvenile level. This novel fits the parameters of faith and romance but it by no means is written only for the juvenile audience. It is so much more. It is very well written with the characters developed and the dialog very realistic (not stilted). The characters do not seem like flat cardboard characters but three dimensional. The dialog is more mature than much I've seen in Amish fiction.
You will not regret reading this book.
Because of some missing details in the purchase of the land and shop where Clayton's family had lived, Matthew Zoom has to find Clayton and get his signature on a quick claim deed.
Everything about the death of Miriam comes out and the things Matthew goes through to find Clayton make for a very good and interesting story. I would most definitely recommend reading it.
This is not the typical Amish "who will the girl marry" novel, and quite refreshing!
A very good read- glad I got it.
