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.
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.
