Book: The Beloved Hope Chest

 

Author: Amy Clipston

 

Genre: Amish

 

Release Date: May 9, 2017

 

In the final installment of the Amish Heirloom series, the Fisher sisters learn the mystery behind their parents’ marriage—and about the sibling who has never been spoken of.

Mattie Fisher’s three daughters know that she’s been keeping a secret from them. With each item pulled from the beloved family hope chest, they’ve discovered a new clue about their mother’s past.

But there’s a reason Mattie has been keeping her history hidden, and she’s not sure she’s ready to reopen old wounds. Will dredging up the past change the way her children view her? Or her marriage to their father? And can she handle the pain of revisiting the memories that preceded the last few happy decades?

Mattie’s story is one of grief and learning to love again. But like the best things preserved in a hope chest, it’s a story of love and redemption born out of heartache—and it’s past time to share it.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

What A joy to be able to read and review this last book in the series by Amy Clipston. In this last book Mattie tells the whole story to her daughters. My heart went out to Mattie because of the emotions and hurt that she had to relive by telling the story. Though this is a story of heartaches hurts and loneliness, it is also a story of love and forgiveness and healing. Amy Clipston does a fantastic job of creating and developing characters that still your heart because they sure stole mine. If you enjoy Amish Fiction or if you just enjoying a good clean story I highly recommend this book to you. The Beloved Hope Chest. And I also highly recommend that you check out the other books in the series.

I rec’d a copy of this book from Celebration Lit Book Tours and the author for my honest opinion. The opinions here are mine alone!

Guest post from Amy Clipston

I am thrilled to share the The Beloved Hope Chest, which is the final installment of my Amish Home series.

In The Beloved Hope Chest, the Fisher sisters learn the mystery behind their parents’ marriage—and about the sibling who has never been spoken of. Mattie Fisher’s three daughters know that she’s been keeping a secret from them. With each item pulled from the beloved family hope chest, they’ve discovered a new clue about their mother’s past. But there’s a reason Mattie has been keeping her history hidden, and she’s not sure she’s ready to reopen old wounds. Will dredging up the past change the way her children view her? Or her marriage to their father? And can she handle the pain of revisiting the memories that preceded the last few happy decades? Mattie’s story is one of grief and learning to love again. But like the best things preserved in a hope chest, it’s a story of love and redemption born out of heartache—and it’s past time to share it.

This book is very close to my heart since it is the last in my Amish Heirloom series. I’ve grown to love the Fisher family, and writing Mattie and Leroy’s story was bittersweet. This is a very emotional story, and I poured my heart and soul into it. I hope you enjoy this book since it reveals all of the mysteries that have been placed throughout the series.

Where Two Hearts Meet by Liz Johnson

Where Two Hearts Meet

ABOUT THIS BOOK

Evocative Contemporary Romance Set in a Charming Inn on Beautiful Prince Edward Island

In her kitchen at the Red Door Inn, executive chef Caden Holt is calm, collected, and competent. But when her boss asks her to show off their beautiful island to impress a visiting travel writer and save the inn, Caden is forced to face a world much bigger than her kitchen–and a man who makes her wish she was beautiful.

Journalist Adam Jacobs is on a forced sabbatical on Prince Edward Island. He’s also on assignment to uncover a story. Instead he’s falling in love with the island’s red shores and Caden’s sweets.

When Caden discovers Adam isn’t who she thought he was, she realizes that the article he’s writing could do more than ruin the inn’s chances for survival–it might also break her heart.

Readers will discover hope for the hurting, joy for the broken, and romance for the lonely at the enchanting Red Door Inn.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Caden Holt is in her element when showing off her cooking skills for the Red Door Inn, but out in the public, she can’t get over her shyness, low self image and feelings of being a nobody! She was not at all feeling her happiest when she is ask to show the island to an important visitor.  And Adam Jacobs is not so sure of himself either, being on sabbatical on the island. But as the two spend time together, the attraction is hard to miss between the two.

Where Two Hearts Meet is the second book in Liz Johnson’s Prince Edward Island Dreams Series. And this series keeps getting better. Caden and Adam are two interesting characters. I already loved Caden from the first book, especially her quiet and shy ways, as well as her love and excellent skills of cooking. Adam had to grow on me a bit though, but as the story unfolds and Adam starts seeing Caden for the sweet person she really is, I had no choice but to love him as well. Adam and Caden both had their issues, both coming from two different lifestyles, and Ms. Johnson does a fantastic job of weaving the lives as Hearts of these two in a beautiful way. This is another book you just do not want to miss. If you are looking for a really, really good, clean book for a few hours of entertainment, then this is your book!! I gladly give it 5 stars!

I received this book from The author, Liz Johnson to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
