Hope Crossing- 3 Novels

The Hope of Refuge
Two very different women are pulled by their strongest desires. Deborah Mast joined the Amish church and longs to marry her fiancĂ©, but he is changing. Cara Moore is forced to look into a life that was meant to be hers. Will Ada’s House help them realize their hearts’ desires or will it force them to accept what life has done to each of them?

     The Bridge of Peace
       Living out her passion for teaching, Lena Kauffman’s work is suddenly interrupted by a series of pranks and accidents targeted toward her and her students. When tragedy strikes her dear friend Grey Graber’s family on school property, the school board begins to blame her for the trouble. As grief and confusion take their toll on Grey and Lena’s friendship, they are both forced to face a new reality that may offer the peace and love they each long for.

The Harvest of Grace
Fleeing a terrible mistake, Sylvia Fisher dedicates herself to saving the failing Blank farm. When prodigal son Aaron returns, he is surprised by this unusual farmhand who opposes all his plans. Will Aaron and Sylvia’s unflinching efforts toward opposite futures mask the bigger picture—a path to forgiveness, grace, and the promise of love?

My Book Review:
This three- in one collection includes the best selling Ada's House Trilogy, which is now all wrapped up into one book. First I love that this book includes all three books in 1. Some Amish collections are so hard to wrap your brain around because you lose characters or you can't envision who is who, but this book is great. I love that you don't have to wait for what is next, you can just read the next book. Each book in this novel is heart warming and has a different message to the reader. One story gives the message or redemption, one is about working together despite issues and the other is about friendship in which two people find that beauty is beyond what the outside can see. Cindy Woodsmall did a great job with all three of these books. I also loved the glossary of Dutch terms in the back, which helps people like me who are not super great with understanding Amish novels, but enjoys reading them. I enjoyed this book. I recommend this book to anyone who likes Christian fiction, especially Amish Fiction.
Thank you Waterbrook for allowing me to review this book. I was not compensated for a positive review.
