In the final installment of the Amish Heirloom series, the Fisher sisters learn the mystery behind their parents’ marriage—and about the sibling who has never been spoken of.
Mattie Fisher’s three daughters know that she’s been keeping a secret from them. With each item pulled from the beloved family hope chest, they’ve discovered a new clue about their mother’s past.
But there’s a reason Mattie has been keeping her history hidden, and she’s not sure she’s ready to reopen old wounds. Will dredging up the past change the way her children view her? Or her marriage to their father? And can she handle the pain of revisiting the memories that preceded the last few happy decades?
Mattie’s story is one of grief and learning to love again. But like the best things preserved in a hope chest, it’s a story of love and redemption born out of heartache—and it’s past time to share it.
I gave this book to my mother to read before I read it as she has read the first book in the series. Her opinion was she liked this book, it was as good as the first one and now she wants to read the second book. She think Amy Clipston is good author.
This is a story of just that. This was a story of loss and loving again, it shows that God can bring someone through heart and heart aches and give them something to love and hope again. This is an interesting conclusion to the series, and shows how fragile people are, especially during times of deep grief.
This was a charming, engaging, and emotionally powered book, and once again Amy Clipston has worked her magic with words to tug on the heart strings of readers everywhere. I would give this book a 5 out of 5.
