Katherine, formerly Katie Lapp, is settling into her life in the English world as mistress of her birth mother's mansion. She gets to experience the world, just like she's always longed to do, and yet she still has a longing deep inside that she can't describe. It's almost like her Plain roots are tugging her back, but she's sure that can't be it. And then Daniel Fisher comes back from the dead, and she's all mixed up. And when Dan claims to have found the truth about God... well Katherine isn't ready to jump back in where they left off five long years ago.
I'm giving this book 4.5 stars.
1: Beverly Lewis is my absolute favorite Amish-fiction author. Without. A. Doubt. She catches the spirit, while also telling an actually interesting tale, and I've never doubted the validity of what she says.
2: We gotta take a minute and just appreciate the wonderful person who is Ella Mae Zook. She lived among the Plain people for years, found the truth, and then still stayed there to help and guide the Amish with God's love.
3: Katherine's staff, from protective Fulton, to sisterly Rosie, to Theodore, the chauffer turned almost-grandfather. How perfect are they? They're sweet, funny, and always ready to help poor Katie navigate the world.
4: I love how everything, from sweet dying Willie, to Laura's tombstone, to wonderful Dan himself (They make the cutest couple!) to Lydia, to the minister at Rosie and Fulton's church, to Ella Mae, kept pointing Katie to exactly what God wanted her to see, His goodness and love!
5: As far as ending a trilogy goes, this one bout takes the cake! It's wonderful, with an ending that you just can't help getting excited over!
