Publisher's Summary

The third and final book in the Amish of Summer Grove series, from New York Times and CBA best-selling novelist Cindy Woodsmall, brings an Old Order Amish young woman and an Englischer woman who were switched at birth full circle, as they decide where their futures will lie.

After several months living out in the world with her birth family, Ariana Brenneman is back living in the Old Amish community that she grew up in. The shock of discovering she and Skylar Nash were switched at birth has not worn off, but both young women are regaining their footing and trying to determine what lies ahead - the Amish life or an Englischer one? Ariana must also decide if Quill Schlabach will play a role in hers or not.

another good one

Cindy Woodsmall knows how to write a tear jerker and this one follows true to form.

I wouldn't call this book terribly exciting but it is heart warming in this final book in the trilogy.

What was most interesting to me is how the author brings to life some of the challenges the Amish might be encountering as they move forward in time. With all the technological innovations going on in the world how does a religion stay relevant with the world on fast forward and the religion seemingly stuck to beliefs hundreds of years old. I thought for a good part of this book that many of the Old Order Amish wouldn't like this book as it discusses changes that need to be made. But as the book wore on, and following the title 'Gathering of Threads' maybe the book is relevant to the times as I'm sure many Amish likely feel the church, the Amish way of life is so stuck in the past that structural changes need to be made to be of value for more of the people.

Sting Nielsen is one of my favorite narrators!

I really enjoyed this story by Cindy Woodsmall. Sting Nielson's narrating will not disappoint. She makes this book come alive. Great story for any time of year. It's not a Christmas story per se.

gathering threads

the beginning was tough to follow since the author tried to catch us up on the plot from the first book which turned out to be helpful as the plot was very involved. but as I caught onto the various storylines, it was difficult to stop listening to the story, as it was very enjoyable. the challenges of living Amish in the modern world.

Good series but glad the legalism was put to rest.

I have really liked amish stories, but the legalism gets super annoying and really old, so I'm glad that in this series it was put to rest. Lovable characters, great narration, clean stories with a bit of mystery, really enjoyable.
