This is the third book in the Quilts of Lancaster County Series, and I'm going to miss these sweet friends. Jenny is married to Matthew, and his children have become her own. Hannah and Chris are about to have a new baby and Jenny's longing for her own baby has become even stronger. She is so disappointed not to have had a child of her own yet.
When her Grandmother becomes ill she Jenny moves her in the dawdi haus to take care of her. While she is retrieving some of her Grandmother's things from Hannah's and Chris's. she finds an old letter where her Grandmother's has informed her father of Matthew. She later finds out that Matthew yielded to her Father's wishes and didn't pursue Jenny. Jenny feels betrayed by both her Grandmother and Matthew. She has to learn to forgive and accept all the blessings that God has granted her.
A real glimpse into a wonderful Amish family with everyday struggles. I wish there were more books in this series, but be sure not to miss this one!
I was provided with a copy of this book by the publisher Abingdon Press, and was not required to give a positive review.

I really like this book. It was a fast moving story that caught my attention right away, and once I started I couldn't put it down. Jenny is a very likable character, and a person that most woman can relate to. She has almost the perfect life that she has always wanted. She is married to her childhood sweetheart, has 3 children and is almost completely adjusted to the Amish way of life. Jenny didn't grow up Amish but spent time with her Amish grandmother, this is how she meet Matthew the love of her life. But due to circumstance out of her control Jenny doesn't marry Matthew when they are young, instead she goes out into the world. After an accident Jenny goes home to her grandmother to recuperate. This is when she finds Matthew again, and they fall in love all over again. But Matthew had already been married, and had 3 children with his wife before she passed away. So while Jenny loves Matthews children as her own, they are Matthews and Amelias. This is brought front and center when Jenny learns that they could have been hers, if only someone didn't interfere with her life. This story of how Jenny learns of this, and how she learns to let go of the past, and to forgive those who made choices for her. She learns to really love what she has, as she almost looses it. This is a great story that shows you that it is important to value what you do have, don't go looking for what might have been accept that you are right where you are supposed to be. Trust in God to lead you where you need to be, he will provide for you and make sure that you are in the right spot at the right time.Because lets say that Matthew and Jenny did marry when they were younger, they might not be at the same place in their lives and marriage right now if that had happened.

As someone who reads a lot of Amish fiction, I was eager to read a book by a fairly new Amish author, Barbara Cameron. Several reviewers have had wonderful things to say about her books, and I was curious to see if I would enjoy them for myself.

In my opinion, fans of Wanda Brunstetter and Shelley Shepard Gray would enjoy Barbara's stories and writing style because neither was really a fit for me with this book. Without going into a lot of detail lest I spoil the experience for someone else, there were several areas that seemed to need some improvement. For example, the first 60-70 pages were used to set up the story, and it could've been done in about 30-40 without the repetition that was present. Also, the faith aspect of the book was watered down and almost non-existant. I expected there to be at least one mention of them going to church, or a visit with the bishop about spiritual matters, but neither was a part of this book. Knowing that the Amish have a faith and belief system that is very important to them, it was a big surprise to see that it wasn't included.

Now, I've not read either of the previous books in this series, but that wasn't a problem. This book was great as a stand-alone, and I had no trouble following along with some of the other characters from those previous novels. Another bonus from this book was all the content in the back--a glossary (which is always helpful for those words you think you know, but don't), discussion questions (don't read them until the end because there are spoilers), and lots of yummy recipes (potato soup, here I come).

Even though it wasn't my favorite book, I do plan to read another of Barbara's novels in the future because I've always been a firm believer in giving an author a second chance. There's no telling sometimes when they'll surprise us!

I got this book free on the Kindle awhile back. It is the third book in a three book series and I read it all the way through because I had gotten to know the characters in the other books and wanted to see what would happen. If you like the Amish theme formula of books that have been out of late, then you will probably be okay with this book. I do and I do not. Sometimes it is a nice escape and relaxing type of genre.
I only give this book one or two stars at most. I found the story line to be not very well developed to create a novel with. The author included incidences in the book just to have some interest/excitement. For example, I've never seen so many people end up with emergencies in the hospital as the characters and this particular family do. It was nice to see what becomes of Hannah and Chris (book two main characters). However, I don't think it was a good idea to have Hannah struggle and end up in the hospital again at the end. What was the point other then to fill up some more pages describing it? I just think the author didn't have much of a story to work with and just added a few things in. I also felt the book was a bit choppy and jumped from topic to topic very quickly without a smooth transition. Lastly, the main character in the book does not have a whole lot of fuel/fire for how upset she becomes in the book. I was disappointed overall but just felt I had to read through to the end since I had already put in time to the other books in the series.
