Home All Along by Beth Wiseman is the third book in An Amish Secrets series. Charlotte Dolinsky is living in Paradise, Pennsylvania. It is a difficult day since she is burying her biological mother. They had a contentious relationship due to her mother’s mental health issues. Daniel Byler is approached by Bishop Michael Miller about Charlotte. It is time for Charlotte to make a choice. She cannot continue to straddle both worlds (Amish and Englisch). Charlotte is thrilled when a lost member of her family returns, but she is disappointed when the person is not interested in establishing a relationship. Charlotte loves the community, but she is not sure about making a permanent commitment. She needs to look deep inside herself to discover what she wants in life. What is the right path for Charlotte? Can she overcome her fears? Daniel loves Charlotte, but it is not the right time for him to leave his family or the Amish community. His mother receives disturbing news from her doctor, Eva developed eclampsia and is in a coma, and their Aunt Faye has come to assist them (oh dear). Is there a chance for a happily ever after for Daniel and Charlotte?

Home All Along is a lovely conclusion to An Amish Secrets series. I found the book to be well-written, have engaging characters, and a good pace. Home All Along is not a standalone novel. You need to read the first two books in An Amish Secrets series prior to Home All Along. A few of the themes in Home All Along are power of prayer, right to pick your own fate, choices, fear of failure, faith, and love. Home All Along is realistic. Life is full of ups and downs which is shown in this novel. It is interesting to see what choices each person makes in Home All Along. Aunt Faye is quite a character. She provides levity to Home All Along. I am giving Home All Along 5 out of 5 stars. It was nice to see Charlotte develop over the course of the series. She developed as a person and a Christian. Home All Along is one of those books that you want to read quickly to see how it ends, but you also do not want the story to end (because then the series is over). ( )

A story of heartache and hope, Ms. Wiseman brings us another inspiring Amish novel. I have been a big fan of this author's tender writing style for a long time. Her words of encouragement are written through out the pages of each novel, and this one was no exception. She brought her readers another home run with this one.

As with her previous novels in this series, Ms. Wiseman creates a story filled with twists and turns, and mixes it up with the simple living and finely chiseled characters, in Charlotte and Daniel. Learning to let go, move on and accept what God has in store for them, is never an easy feat, but Ms. Wiseman accomplishes that and so much more.

This book is beyond captivating. It will leave you reflecting on the will of your own life, and I love that she did that for me! It's a book that I won't soon forget, that's for sure! This is most definitely a 5 star novel, and I highly recommend it to all. You'll fall in love with these beautiful characters and their Amish living and want more when you reach the end. Well done, Ms. Wiseman, well done!

This is the third and final book of this series, and yes they can be read alone, but if you start here it is so compelling you will want to read the others.
This one will linger with you, and the author does a wonderful job of wrapping up all that has happened. Surprises abound, and keep the tissues handy, this is life and sometimes it is cruel, and again heart-warming, and this read has it all.
There are many twist and surprising turns to get to the end, and we catch up with all of those that we have come to know, many are now friends. Decisions must be made, but will the right ones be forged? Don’t miss this one!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )

I’ve only read a limited amount of Amish fiction, but the genre is growing on me. I love the sweet and forgiving nature of the people and am slowly learning the Amish language.

I read Ms. Wiseman’s recent novella, Winter Kisses, and got a wonderful flavor of her writing style. I looked forward to receiving Home All Along and once again delving myself into one of her stories.

There is a nice mixture of emotional pulls in this story. I struggled to hold back tears during some touching and difficult scenes, and found relief in some softer moments.

Charlotte is an intriguing character, who has her world turned upside down and feels lost between two worlds. This is a story that deals with many real-life issues and has themes of true family, trust, and forgiveness.

Many thanks to BookLook for my complimentary copy. ( )

What a beautiful story of faith, restoration and hope. The characters are wonderful and I felt a connection to them right away. Charlotte is a great character and I admire her strength and love for others. She is trying to fit in with the Amish and has even found a boyfriend. She has had a very hard life and the scene with her burying her mom was very emotional. Her childhood was very difficult . I loved how the author had scriptures throughout the story that was relatable to the issues characters were going through. It was heartwarming to read how close she becomes to Lena who is having a very devastating health issue.

Andrea is a complex person. She has come to reconnect with her sister Charlotte and leads her to believe that her upbringing was wonderful. I loved how Charlotte welcomed her and her niece into her home. There is definitely some friction between the sisters. Will Andrea open up and tell Charlotte the truth about her childhood? Can they become close and learn to be a family? Andrea became my favorite character because I loved how she was so hungry for acceptance and wanting a relationship with her sister. . Through all her struggles I found her to be a little girl lost. Will she allow God to heal her wounds and accept his unconditional love?

Daniel is a man who loves Charlotte but is having a bit of pressure put on him by the Bishop. He has his hands full with helping his family and dealing with a family illness. I thought the author showed how strong Daniel was and how much faith he had. That is one thing I loved about this book ; faith was so important to the people of this story. Some characters will experience loss, pain and hardship but as they do, the author surrounds them with a loving community and God's love. Charlotte and Andrea both have things in their past that have kept them from moving forward? Can they find peace and let go of the past?

"We are not products of a past environment. We are who we choose to be."

I received a copy of this book from the author. The review is my own opinion. ( )
