This is the last book of the ‘Daughters of Lancaster County’ series.

Leona Weaver is Bishop Jacob Weaver’s daughter. She is a dedicated teacher in an Amish one-room schoolhouse, yet she is no stranger to tragedy. The man she had set her heart on marrying died in a freak accident and when things couldn’t get worse, her father got into a tragic accident of his own. She questions God on why He allows something like that to happen, but God had plans for the Weaver family.

Jimmy Scott is an outsider. After his mother died, he learned about his ‘adoption’ and set off in search of his real family. Away from home, his father then comes clean and confessed that he was not adopted but kidnapped. The cold truth throws Jimmy off and he decides to stay longer in Lancaster as he tries to uncover the truth all the while finding himself falling for the heartbroken Leona.

Abraham Fisher, unaware that the outsider was his very son, was hostile against him. He was envious of Jimmy’s relationship with Jacob and did not like the young man around Leona. Things became complicated between Abraham and Jimmy and Jimmy decides to return home to the man he calls ‘father’ all of his years.

The story ends with Jimmy’s father finding redemption and finally accepting Jesus as his Lord and Savior, Jimmy returning to Lancaster County and being told that Abraham is his biological father, Jimmy accepting his Amish descent and eventually marrying Leona.

This is a series that would stay with me for a long time.

  1. My mom and grandmother have read hundreds of these Amish books. They love love love them. When they are done I take them by box load to the Senior Citizens Center and they give them out.

    1. I hope to read more; they are amazing! I enjoyed learning about their faith and the way they do things. That’s a very nice gesture. 🙂


    1. I wish she had, but I think I am content with where she stopped because all the characters made peace with themselves and most importantly, God. They really were and I hope to read more some day.

      1. I didn’t read them but by your reviews it seemed to me that the books were full of God. I don’t know how to explain that, without typing a whole novel in your comments 🙂 I feel you know what I mean. If I am correct about the book series, there could have been 100 and they would have been good 🙂
