My comments: Clipston ended this series of books very sweetly, but not without some anxious moments and feelings of injustice. The very likeable characters of Katie and Seth were matched by the very unlikeable character of Katie’s dad. Most of the way throigh the book, Katie’s mom was unlikeable as well. Katie and Jake faced a real dilemna – one that’s a little difficult to swallow in our Englisch world, but very real I suppose (since I don’t have first hand knowledge) in the Amish world.
It took a little while to fully engage in the book, but once I did, my emotions were on a roller coaster. I love books that cause me to shed a tear or two. Some questions were left unanswered, so I’m wondering if another series picking up these story lines is in the works.
Some of the recipes from the bakery are included in the back of the book, which I always appreciate. They seem simple and tasty – I haven’t tried any yet, but hope to soon.
Amy Clipston writes great books – I highly recommend this series.
Zondervan will release this book the middle of June. I obtained a free review copy. Thank you!
