REVIEW: A Season of Change was my first book by Beth Wiseman and a great book it was! I couldn’t put it down. It was number three in a series but, it did wonderfully as a stand alone. I didn’t realize it was part of a series when I started it. I want to go back and read books one and two although, I never felt lost or that I was missing anything reading this book out of order.
This book was like drinking water after a drought. It went down smooth and was refreshing. I just read a book that was a struggle so, I really enjoyed sitting back and relaxing with such a good book. Because it is an Amish romance, I knew there would be some talk of God but it wasn’t over the top or down your throat. Just a nice story that filled me up.
There were troubles and characters finding their way forward to a fruitful life. It was poignant, brought tears to my eyes and made me remember that no matter what we are loved! If you enjoy a clean love story which includes love among family and those that become family, you will most likely find yourself falling in love with this book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from #FirstEditions and #Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
SYNOPSIS: Finding peace means letting go of the past—and embracing the change that is to come.
Sisters Esther and Lizzie have a new employee, Rose Petersheim, to help them tend to The Peony Inn. But their old matchmaking ways have stayed the same. The sisters focus their efforts on the lovely twenty-five-year-old Rose. Though Rose is witty and outspoken, her nervous chattering makes her the best match for someone calm and good at listening. Someone like Benjamin—the handsome handyman who recently moved to town.
But when Esther receives an anonymous love letter and flowers, Rose’s love life is no longer the only one capturing the sisters’ attention. As they sleuth around searching for Esther’s secret admirer, they uncover that their grumpy renter, Gus, has a secret of his own that could bring about a difficult change in all their lives. And their continued meddling in Rose’s affairs reveals she, too, is hiding something—an old wound that could threaten her future happiness.
As Rose, Lizzie, Esther, and Gus struggle to release the weight of their pasts, they discover that although people are complicated, love doesn’t need to be.
This charming third installment of the Amish Inn series from bestselling author Beth Wiseman is a picture of loss and healing in which forgiveness will prove to be the greatest act of love.
