"A Season of Change"
By Beth Wiseman
Finding peace means letting go of the past—and embracing the change that is to come.
Sisters Esther and Lizzie have a new employee, Rose Petersheim, to help them tend to The Peony Inn. But their old matchmaking ways have stayed the same. The sisters focus their efforts on the lovely twenty-five-year-old Rose. Though Rose is witty and outspoken, her nervous chattering makes her the best match for someone calm and good at listening. Someone like Benjamin—the handsome handyman who recently moved to town.
But when Esther receives an anonymous love letter and flowers, Rose’s love life is no longer the only one capturing the sisters’ attention. As they sleuth around searching for Esther’s secret admirer, they uncover that their grumpy renter, Gus, has a secret of his own that could bring about a difficult change in all their lives. And their continued meddling in Rose’s affairs reveals she, too, is hiding something—an old wound that could threaten her future happiness.
As Rose, Lizzie, Esther, and Gus struggle to release the weight of their pasts, they discover that although people are complicated, love doesn’t need to be.
This charming third installment of the Amish Inn series from bestselling author Beth Wiseman is a picture of loss and healing in which forgiveness will prove to be the greatest act of love.
This book is the third in Beth Wiseman's "The Amish Inn" series , reconnecting readers with the Peony Inn and its quirky, humorous owners, Lizzie and Esther as well as the cranky old man, Gus and Rose, the young woman who is never short of words! What a delightful read!! This novel is Amish fiction at its best! Beth's unique style of storytelling grabs the reader and immediately pulls one into the lives of these dear folks allowing us to experience their adventures alongside them. The characters are so realistically and well described that one easily identifies with each of them.
The plot is fast moving with unexpected surprises constantly cropping up. I could not put this book down once I started to read!! Humor had me laughing out loud at times, while other situations had me near tears. The message of forgiveness and redemption comes through loud and clear throughout this story. It was certainly a roller coaster ride as I followed Rose and Benjamin's developing romance as well as that of two dear older individua
Definitely, a five star book!! This author has done it again, written another winning novel!!
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher. The thoughts and opinions expressed are honest and my own.
