The last Adams County Trilogy book
is captivating from start to finish. The Amish history, written by an author with
a vast amount of knowledge about the Amish and Mennonite ways, is wonderful to read about. The characters are charming and enduring, and readers will not soon forget them or their struggles to do the right thing.
Rebecca Keim is engaged to John Miller. They have overcome their problems and their relationship has never been stronger, or so they think. While Rebecca leaves to attend the funeral of her teacher, John receives a letter from an unknown source accusing Rebecca of telling falsehoods in order to marry him for money.
When Rebecca returns, she finds out she's the sole heir to the three farms her teacher owned, under one condition: To receive them, she must marry an Amish man. Rebecca swears to John and everyone else she had no knowledge of the will. When Rachel Byler, the rightful heir, arrives in town, bitter and seeking revenge, can Rebecca and John, with the help of the community, solve the mystery of the past in order to have a glorious future?
