Another great Amish novel from Amy Clipston

Product Details"A Season of Love"
    By Amy Clipston

Amy has written another winning novel from the Kauffman Bakery Series. This story continues with the two sisters, who were left as orphans when their parents were tragically killed, as secondary characters, while the rest of the community take front stage. The setting is Bird in Hand, Pennsylvania, right in the heart of Amish country. A lovely spot for a love story to take place- Lindsay, the sister who has become Amish, is in love with Matthew, Lizzie Anne is planning her marriage to Samuel, leaving the third  best friend, Lizzie ( who just happens to be Samuel's sister) , in back field , feeling lonely and unwanted. She is a dedicated baker at her Mammi's bakery and takes care of her family, however you can feel her great desire for something more. She so wants to be a wife and mother. She is secretly hurting, as she does not want to tell her two best friends how she really feels and spoil their happiness.

Throughout the book, you feel Katie's confusion, hurt and challenges, trying to please her rather harsh father, but also desiring to fulfill her lifelong dreams. To complicate matters, with her daad, a young carpenter , Jake, enters the scene. He is suffering as well, but from a broken heart. He is trying to rebuild his life but is rather aloft to people, afraid of being hurt more. Then comes the challenge- Jake begins to do a project at the bakery. He and Katie spend some time together and find that they have a lot in common. Katie is confronted by a huge challenge, she is Amish, Jake is Mennonite- a definite problem. Katie's father is furious. It is totally unheard of for the two to mix, let alone date, and they dare not be seen together. What will Katie do? Try to please her dad or follow her heart's desire???? What will Jake do?? What is God's plan for these two wonderful young people?

This is a wonderful love story that exhibits God's love for all of His people. Amy has concluded her series with a true work of art!! I am definitely looking forward to more books by this very talented author.
