Ada's House Trilogy
Two very different women are pulled by their strongest desires. Deborah Mast joined the Amish church and longs to marry her fiancé, but he is changing. Cara Moore is forced to look into a life that was meant to be hers. Will Ada’s House help them realize their hearts’ desires or will it force them to accept what life has done to each of them?
The Bridge of Peace
Living out her passion for teaching, Lena Kauffman’s work is suddenly interrupted by a series of pranks and accidents targeted toward her and her students. When tragedy strikes her dear friend Grey Graber’s family on school property, the school board begins to blame her for the trouble. As grief and confusion take their toll on Grey and Lena’s friendship, they are both forced to face a new reality that may offer the peace and love they each long for.
The Harvest of Grace
Fleeing a terrible mistake, Sylvia Fisher dedicates herself to saving the failing Blank farm. When prodigal son Aaron returns, he is surprised by this unusual farmhand who opposes all his plans. Will Aaron and Sylvia’s unflinching efforts toward opposite futures mask the bigger picture—a path to forgiveness, grace, and the promise of love?"
My review: This collection of three books was one that I hated to see come to an end! I enjoyed all three and would have a very hard time choosing one to be my favorite. As each of the first two stories came to an end I was quickly drawn into the next one. As the third one ended, I hated to see the trilogy end. The characters felt like family and the stories were very thought-provoking. Each title accurately represents the theme in each book: hope, peace and grace. Ms. Woodsmall has a way of telling a story that makes you feel as if you are right there in the middle with many lessons to learn along with the characters. If you are a fan of Amish books, this is a trilogy you won't want to miss! I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from the publisher through the Blogging for Books program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
