Forever Amish: A Blog Tour and Book Review

About The Book:

The latest book in the Legacy of Lancaster trilogy, Forever Amishintroduces us to a young woman about to uncover a shocking secret and find an invitation to a new way of living. This is a story of forgiveness, legacies, and the ties that bind through generations.
It’s the Last Thing She Expects to Find
Sally Bingham needs some time away to sort through the changes in her life and to rethink her upcoming marriage. Despite her ailing father’s hesitations, she takes off for a bed and breakfast in Lancaster County for a weekend away. But her best-laid plans leave her in a near collision with a bishop’s buggy and in the home of a mysterious Amish woman named Lizzie. Lizzie introduces her to a different perspective on life, a charming farmhand named Armin— and opens a Pandora’s box that will forever change Sally’s life.

My Review:
One thing that I enjoy about Amish Fiction is it's ability to take us to a culture and life that many of us are not familiar with, yet desire. It is about simplicity and community, something many of us don't have because in today's society it's all about go, go, go and don't get close to people for fear of rejection. The simplicity found in the Amish lifestyle is something that has taught me ways to be simple despite all going on in my life. 
Forever Amish was a truly heartwarming book about family, love and forgiveness. It is engaging from the very first pages, and while it is the third book in Legacy of Lancaster trilogy, it does well as a stand-alone novel. I felt that the characters continued to be well-developed and loved all the interactions throughout the book. A lovely pick for your summer reading list to be sure.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
BUY IT: You can purchase Forever Amish online through Amazon.com. It is also available through your favorite local bookseller from David C. Cook
