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.

Not an easy listen

Tough to listen to if you grew up in a legalistic childhood such as I did. Although our community strongly believed in the Bible, church doctrine was held up as equal to the Bible in practice: not in theology and would not have been a correct answer on a test question, but in practice church teaching was equal to the Bible. This book was not meant to entertain, but to make you think and challenge some of your thinking. Although it only confirmed a lot of things that I had already discovered in my own life, rather than give me new revelation, it did allow me to see that the Amish community was very much like the faith community that I experienced and the rules and the regulations and double standards. The most interesting belief that the Amish have is that if you leave their community that you are leaving your faith in God. Although they don't feel that no one outside the Amish faith can believe in God, they do seem to believe that if you are Amish and then choose to leave the Amish community that you are automatically turning your back on God and on your faith in God.
