Publisher's Summary

Will returning to their Amish roots renew their faith in each other?

Isaac and David never thought they'd go back to the Amish world. But when Isaac's younger brother is stricken with cancer, they don't hesitate to return. Their relationship is on the rocks after insecurity and fear drove a wedge between them in San Francisco, and David is determined to make things right. Yet if they thought navigating "English" life was confusing, being back in Zebulon is even more complicated.

Their families are desperate to bring them back into the fold, and pressure from the community builds. Isaac and David yearn for a future together, but each day it becomes harder to hide the truth about who they really are. They're caught between two worlds, and if they're not careful it could tear them further apart.

Can Isaac and David make their way back to each other-and find a place to call home?

Contains mature themes.

I'm sad that this narrator was chosen

I read this series when it was first released and fell in love with it completely. I've re-read it many times, and loved it more each time. It manages to be honest about the Amish lifestyle without being judgmental. It's impossible not to fall in love with David and Isaac, they manage to be the best people while still having depth. The problems they face are reasonable for people being introduced to a world they've lived alongside their whole lives without ever being part of. I love that they always find their strength in their love of each other.

Audio: I had the highest of hopes that this series would be one that I'd re-listen to over and over, but John Solo is an irritating narrator. His weird pauses, off-putting emphasises, and just generally overdramatic presentation made that unlikely. I don't understand why this narrator was chosen, especially since this, her most popular or one of her most popular, series took so very long to be released in audio. It is truly disappointing.

Terrible narrator

I’ve read this series a few times but this is my first time listening to the audiobooks. The narrator ruined the story. It’s painful to get through. He reads dialogue stilted with awkward pauses. It’s as if he believes Amish is a sort of mental disorder and he tries to make every character speak like they have brain trauma. When he isn’t insulting every character’s speech he’s overly dramatic and just... wrong. Weird, awkward and wrong. It saddens me that this narrator was chosen and allowed to destroy such a good series.

Excellent end of a Gay & Amish trilogy.

This book won't make sense unless you've read "A Forbidden Rumspringa" and "A Clean Break" for the extensive backstory.
The novel highlights the uphill battle Isaac and David have, attempting to come back to their Ur Amish home. The dour bishop and deacon control parents in Zebulon and are given the power to decide a child's access to cancer treatment - such is their power over the child's similarly dour parents.

The characters are well defined and further sharpened by John Solo's outstanding narration.

Lovers Isaac and David work beyond what is reasonable to bring their elders to a point of resolution, but know they can't bring the town to acceptance.

Excellent writing, well craffed plot and diligent research on Amish and their ways, plus Minnesota and San Francisco. I recommend the series.

Finally

*Sigh* I'm so happy for Isaac and David. I wish this series never ended. I'd love to see where their relationship went from there. Also, if any of their siblings left Zebulon also. Medium heat level. No angst. John Solo crushed the narration.

A decent finish to this series....

***Audio Review***

Decent finish to the series. John's narration of the whole series has been really good, although I do wonder why he over-emphasises some words I have to admit...it can be quite irritating. Deacon Stoltzfus was just as terrifying to listen to as he was to read about. 🤨 My Isaac and my David were a delight, and Aaron and Jen were lovely. This REALLY is one of the best series there is.

***Book Review April 2015***

What a fantastic ending to this series...or is it?? Keira has hinted on Facebook that she may well let the boys have another story further down the line, and for me, THAT can only be a good thing. Isaac and David, MY boys, it has been a pleasure to go on this journey with you. 5 stars. 💜💚🧡💛💙

What really stood out in this one for me was the depth of love these two have for each other AND for the rest of their family, although undoubtedly, some deserved it more than others.

The scene between Melvin and Isaac in the tree-house was brilliant, Melvin doing his very best to understand why Isaac loved David and not a girl. The scene where Aaron discovered that HE was the only one who could help Nathan recover from the aggressive form of cancer he was suffering from, and that their parents might block his help because he was ‘shunned’. David talking to Jen about his anxiety problems and the drinking, and then eventually coming clean to Isaac and confessing he wasn’t finding it as easy to live in the English world as Isaac was..oh, and I mustn't forget where Isaac actually shouted at his parents, the interfering Amish elders and everyone in the whole, wide world that he couldn't go back to being Amish cos he LOVED David, and wouldn't go back to living in the Dark Ages for anything.

There were so many wonderful moments in this story, I just loved it. Already looking forward to the next story with these boys/young men.
