3.5 stars (rating shown may vary depending on whether site allows half star ratings).

I would say this was my favorite of the three books in the trilogy. I did not realize until I read the author's note at the end that she was attempting to fictionally document the church split that occurred in the 1960s. I do agree with another reviewer that the epilogue seemed to have to wrap up many plot lines. I do think that characters that appeared in this series were in a previous series (Rosanna and Elias King were mentioned by another reviewer for one of the previous books in the series as the reason she read that book was wanting to know what happened with Rosanna and Elias.) It is possible that characters from this series will be featured in a different set of books as well with the epilogue expanded on in that series.

SPOILERS MAY FOLLOW--READ ON AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION:

Another reviewer complained that all people seemed to care about was converting others or bringing them into the New Order. I can understand that--when your eyes are first opened and you first start learning things, you do desire to tell others about it and you want them to share in it with you.

I did suspect all along that Caleb and Nellie Mae would end up together. It's kind of the way these books go. Lewis did a respectable job of trying to introduce a "love triangle" of sorts by bringing Christian Yoder into the picture. (I suspect Rhoda and Christian may get together in another series--but who knows.) ( )

In this highly anticipated series conclusion a single moment can transform a life and a heart.

Great ending book for a great series! I love reading Beverly Lewis' books. The only thing that I don't like is finishing a series. What faith the Amish have. I wish the world would put God into everyday activities. Thank you for such a good feeling story. ( )

Although she still thinks of Caleb Yoder, nellie Mae Fisher has broken up with her beau, choosing instead to follow the ways of the New Order. Yet her yearning for ahusband remains, and new possiblities beckon, taking her heart by surprise.

In the third and final novel the courtship of Nellie Mae comes to a conclusion. It was repetitive and things didn't get really interesting until the last third or so of the book and then, in the epilogue, things wrapped up a little too neatly, it seemed. Nellie Mae chose a husband and gave up her bake shop, preferring to bake for her husband only. Why couldn't she have kept it? People loved her baked good and it would have brought in a little extra money. The thing that bothered me the most during this series was Caleb's inability to form his own opinions. In the first two books he refused to consider any other point of view than the Old Order - his father's religion. Then in the third book when his father turned to the New Order, Caleb in time also followed his father. I can't help but wonder if Caleb ever had a mind of his own. ( )
