The Beloved Hope Chest (Amish Heirloom #4) by Amy Clipston

 The Beloved Hope Chest (Amish Heirloom #4) by Amy Clipston 


In the final installment of the Amish Heirloom series, the Fisher sisters learn the mystery behind their parents’ marriage—and about the sibling who has never been spoken of.

Mattie Fisher’s three daughters know that she’s been keeping a secret from them. With each item pulled from the beloved family hope chest, they’ve discovered a new clue about their mother’s past.

But there’s a reason Mattie has been keeping her history hidden, and she’s not sure she’s ready to reopen old wounds. Will dredging up the past change the way her children view her? Or her marriage to their father? And can she handle the pain of revisiting the memories that preceded the last few happy decades?

Mattie’s story is one of grief and learning to love again. But like the best things preserved in a hope chest, it's a story of love and redemption born out of heartache—and it's past time to share it.

My Thoughts:
If you have never read any of the books from the Heirloom series, you are seriously missing out. If you are an avid amish reader, this series is for you! If you have never read an amish book in your life, don't worry, this series and book still is for YOU! The Beloved Hope Chest is by far my favorite book to date that Ms. Clipston has written. Imagine your married to one man for the rest of your life when an accident takes him and your world is turned upside down. Then, you not only lose him, but something else so precious and dear to you. This is a story of grief, faith, love, forgiveness and redemption. It is a story where we see how God is working even when we do not always see the full story or what He is doing, but we know He has a good plan. This book will make you laugh, cry and you'll be rooting for Leroy! Although this is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend reading the entire series, you won't regret it. This book has me still thinking on certain days as I am so deeply connected with the character of Mattie. Thank you to author for providing me an ARC copy. A positive review was not required. I give this book 5/5 stars. The opinions expressed here are my own.
