Rich details and enchanting characters make this series third difficult to put down. Touching scenes provide contentment and peace, and the “comfort quilt” reminds us that this unique culture is not disconnected from the Englisch world.
When Jodi Winfield finds a little girl who speaks no English alongside a country road, she takes her to Hickory Hollow, a nearby Amish community. Viewed as a guardian angel, Jodi is quickly accepted by the community, a practice uncommon with Englischers. She is amazed by the beauty and peace she experiences in Hickory Hollow. Was she led here for a higher purpose? How will her presence there change her life — and that of Maryanna, the mother of young Sarah? (BETHANY HOUSE, Apr., 352 pp., $14.99)
