Review: The Beloved Hope Chest by Amy Clipston + GIVEAWAY

25 May, 2017 Book Reviews, Giveaways 13 [simple-rating stars="five-stars"]

My Thoughts
Amy Clipston has always been a favorite of mine. Her books are always tenderly written, drawing me to the heart of each story. The characters she creates always become like family, leaving me with all their emotions. The Beloved Hope Chest was no exception! 

The Beloved Hope Chest is the final Amish Heirloom book, making it an even more emotional book for me. I’m not ready to say goodbye yet! But, that said, this conclusion was a beautiful one. The story that captivated me instantly isn’t one I’ll soon forget. 

Mattie, Leroy, and all the sweet loving characters in this book, stole my heart for good. They are simple, as Amish are, yet extremely complex. The emotions they share jump off the pages, cocooning the reader in warmth and grace, and sometimes sorrow. I loved that! 

This book is in my top 10 reads of 2017. Amy has taken a story of grief and heartache and turned it into a story filled with longing, hope, faith and understanding. It is the 4th and final book in the series, and while I recommend readers to read all four books (they are all great!), it is easy to read this as a stand alone. You just might miss out on a bit of the characters back stories. I highly recommend this book with the highest of 5 stars!

    My favorite book so far in 2017 is The Beloved Hope Chest by Amy Clipston. I loved the whole series, which is my favorite of all her series. Personally, I have read all of Amy’s books and feel she has grown as a writer, getting better with each series, yet I still love them all.

    Reading Bride by Arrangement, so far I enjoy it.The few books I have been able to read lately have been good not great for me.

    Well, I have to say that I stepped out of my normal genre reading of anything Amish and read a book by Chris Fabry called The Promise of Jesse Woods and I loved it! Anything Amish is my first love!
