Sally Bingham needs some time away to sort through the changes in her life and to rethink her upcoming marriage. Despite her ailing father's hesitations, she takes off for a bed and breakfast in Lancaster County for a weekend away. But her best-laid plans leave her in a near collision with a bishop's buggy and in the home of a mysterious Amish woman named Lizzie. Lizzie introduces her to a different perspective on life, a charming farmhand named Armin--- and opens a Pandora's box that will forever change Sally's life.
I really enjoyed reading this book, the last in the trilogy. Sally's father had kept quiet about her childhood and what happened to her mother. When Sally is contacted by an Amish girl wanting to buy one of her dogs a can of worms is opened and she learns why she's always had a longing in her heart to be among the Amish people.
The more she finds out the more she has to deal with feelings of abandonment, being lied to, and forgiving those who tried to protect her but ended up causing more harm than good. The characters are unique and likeable. The author did a nice job tying things up, I loved Armin and rooted for him and Sally to get together. If you like Amish fiction I think you'll enjoy Sally's journey.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
