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!

Series: Amish Heirloom
Amy Clipston has brought her fans yet another captivating, fun ride. I truly enjoyed reading this start to her Amish Heirloom series. Her words, her characters, her story line all combine to create a read you won’t be able to put down! I know I couldn’t, as I read it in a day! I loved Veronica and Jason’s characters. Both went through something emotional and tragic, and both had a fear in their heart. Watching them together, feeling like I was right there in the middle of Amish country with them, was so fun. Each page turn brought something to the book and kept me hooked the whole time. I definitely recommend this book by the amazingly talented Amy Clipston. She knows just what her readers want and delivers. This story is filled with God’s grace and love, and characters that will steal your heart. But, be warned! Ms. Clipston’s 5 star worthy work is absolutely addictive and will leave you hungry for more. I can’t wait to read book 2!
