A message from her sister, Sarah, draws Hannah Lapp back to the Amish community that she fled in disgrace three years ago. As she gets pulled into her sister's problems, secrets come to light and answers are given. Hannah also finds herself being pulled towards her first love again. She's got a comfortable life outside of the Plain community with a family that loves her. Will she choose to stay in the Amish world or leave it all behind to continue to live as an Englischer?

This the third and final book to Cindy Woodsmall's Sister of the Quilt Series. It is the conclusion to Hannah's story. I've not read the other two books, but I didn't find that by not reading them, I couldn't follow the storyline. On the contrary, I was able to follow the story and even figure out what had happened in the previous two books. Forgiveness is something that Hannah struggles with. And I loved how the incidents from her past allowed her to actually forgive those who had wronged her. The characters are all very strong and while it's Hannah's story, it's not just about her. The plotlines of the secondary characters also followed the theme of forgiveness.

Overall, I'll give this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received this book for free from Waterbrook/Multnomah for the purpose of an honest review. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
