Beyond Hope's Valley by Tricia Goyer
"After an extended stay in Montana, where Amish traditions are different than in her home state, Marianna Sommer returns to Indiana for two reasons, first to help her brother and his girlfriend prepare for a baby and their wedding. Second, to plan her own wedding to Aaron Zook -- a marriage she’s been dreaming about ever since childhood. And yet, although she had missed the idyllic farms and families of her upbringing, Marianna is surprised that Indiana is somehow making her long now for Montana.
As months pass, secrets that were hidden in winter’s frozen grasp thaw and take on a life of their own. The truths about a child, about a past relationship, and about God’s plans are being revealed. Walking through a valley of questions, Marianna must hold on to hope as she decides where and with whom her heart truly belongs."
This is the final book in this Amish series. If you haven't read the first two already I highly recommend them. You can find them in my previous reviews. In this final book we see Marianna back at "home" in Indiana. She is trying to fit back into the community while trying to help her brother prepare for a wedding and a baby that is on the way. But, does she still fit here, and will she ever be able to forget about Montana or the one she left there? This book moved a little slow for me but I was just too anxous to get to the end and find out with whom or where Marianna would truley decide to be. This book did not disappoint! A great read but if you haven't read the previous books in this series you may be a little lost, I recommend the whole series!!
