About the book:

Beyond Hope’s Valley – Book Three in the Big Sky series

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.

My Impressions:

Let me start by saying that I loved the first two books in the Big Sky series. I could not wait for Beyond Hope’s Valley to be released. I enjoyed reading about the romance between Ben and Marianna so much that I hoped this book would include more of that. It did not. Instead, Beyond Hope’s Valley focused on the internal struggles that Ben and Marianna each had to face separately. Although I enjoyed the journey of their struggles, I wish the end result would have happened sooner {I don’t want to ruin the book for anyone who has not read it so I am not disclosing what the “end result” is}. I wish there would have been more chapters centered on the end result and less on the internal struggles. The book did stimulate some spiritual questions for me personally which is a truly valuable gift to receive. I am giving Beyond Hope’s Valley 3 out 5 stars.

    This sounds like an interesting book to read. Living in the Midwest it might give some insight on local traditions from the Amish and Mennonites.
