Gathering the Threads Cindy Woodsmall- The Amish Summer Grove #3


Finally back in the Old Order Amish world she loves,
Will Ariana’s new perspectives draw her family closer together—
or completely rip them apart?

After months away in the Englisch world, Ariana Brenneman is overjoyed to be in the Old Order Amish home where she was raised. Yet her excitement is mixed with an unexpected apprehension as she reconciles all she’s learned from her biological parents with the uncompromising teachings of her Plain community. Although her childhood friend, ex-Amish Quill Schlabach, hopes to help her navigate her new role amongst her people, Ariana’s Daed doesn’t understand why his sweet daughter is suddenly questioning his authority. What will happen if she sows seeds of unrest and rebellion in the entire family?

Meanwhile, Skylar Nash has finally found her place among the large Brenneman family, but Ariana’s arrival threatens to unravel Skylar’s new identity—and her sobriety. Both Ariana and Skylar must discover the true cords that bind a family and community together and grasp tight the One who holds their authentic identities close to His heart.

Gathering the Threads is the third and final novel in The Amish of Summer Grove series.

My thoughts on the book:

Ariana is back home and things just aren't as they were when she left. She seem to upset the "cattle cart" and now it seems everyone wants to silencer her. Can she convince her amish parents she's still the girl they raised but now has a different way of thinking?

I have truly fell in loved with this series and this book sure did not disappoint. I am sad to see that this is the third and final book but am so going to grab more from this author. In this series each character is faced with a secret that disrupts there lives and question everything they know. In this book they are faced with hope, forgiveness, love, grace and healing and facing the anger and hurt of the past and present. I loved how in this book the author continued to throw twist into the story and keep you interested in what was going to happen next. I loved the mystery element in this book that didn't happen in the other books. I loved how this story ended and how the author ended the book with an amazing follow up on what took place with all the characters. I really had a hard time putting this book and you will not be disappointed at all. 

This is the third an final book and should read the other books in order.
