Review by sheriefx
This was my favorite book in the whole series! Caleb is reunited with his estranged family due to a tragic accident affecting his father which results in a surprising outcome. We also see Rhoda's life as she fully embraces the world. Will she find the happiness she is so desperately searching for or will she realize that she had that happiness in the simple life she once lived? And Nellie Mae finally finds love in the end, but with who? We also finally get to see some closure for Rosanna and Elias King. I really enjoyed reading this book. Beverly Lewis weaves a beautiful story in this whole series. If you haven't read any of the books in this series I suggest you do!
Review by pandareads
In the third and final novel the courtship of Nellie Mae comes to a conclusion. It was repetitive and things didn't get really interesting until the last third or so of the book and then, in the epilogue, things wrapped up a little too neatly, it seemed. Nellie Mae chose a husband and gave up her bake shop, preferring to bake for her husband only. Why couldn't she have kept it? People loved her baked good and it would have brought in a little extra money. The thing that bothered me the most during this series was Caleb's inability to form his own opinions. In the first two books he refused to consider any other point of view than the Old Order - his father's religion. Then in the third book when his father turned to the New Order, Caleb in time also followed his father. I can't help but wonder if Caleb ever had a mind of his own.
