Suggested Age: 13+
Genre:Amish Fiction, Christian Fiction
This is the first book that I've read in this series but it doesn't really seem necessary to have read the others. I'm usually a fan of Brunstetter but holy moly...this book switches point of view so often that I had a hard time following it. There were thirteen, in fact. Yes, you read that right...thirteen different perspectives! The minute that I started connecting with a character, it would switch to another person's point of view. It was a cute idea but I am not very fond of the delivery.

This is a new author to me—as you all know, that is something I always fear. However, my fears were unfounded. This story is so beautifully written and gripping. I brushed away tears at times because I know that the fears and the horrors of Auschwitz were real. Those horrors had to be worse than can be conveyed in a fictional account.

This book is the beautiful conclusion to the heart-touching, Sisters of the Quilt Trilogy.

I wish that I could put into words how much this series means to me. I’m sitting here trying to type this review and my heart wants to pour out all the wisdom that I learned from Hannah and yet my mind can’t form a sentence that does it justice. This is one of the best Amish Fiction stories you will ever read. You will cry, you will laugh, then you will cry some more.

Hannah’s story can be difficult to read in places. She has suffered things that no woman should ever have to suffer. Nevertheless…she finds peace in the Lord Jesus and she becomes this beautifully strong and vibrant woman who doesn’t let her past determine her future.

Beautifully written and very touching, this is a series that I will read again.
