A Place of Peace by Amy Clipston
Miriam Lapp, who left the Amish community in Pennsylvania three years ago, is heartbroken when her sister calls to reveal that her mother has died suddenly. Traveling home to Pennsylvania, she is forced to face the heartache from her past, including her rift from her family and the break up of her engagement with Timothy Kauffman. Her past emotional wounds are reopened when her family rejects her once again and she finds out that Timothy is in a relationship with someone else. Miriam discovers that the rumors that broke them up three years ago were all lies. However, when Timothy proposes to his girlfriend and Miriam's father disowns her, Miriam returns to Indiana with her heart in shambles. When Miriam's father has a stroke, Miriam returns to Pennsylvania, and her world begins to fall apart, leaving her to question her place in the Amish community and her faith in God.
This is the third book in the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series...along with the Plain and Simple Christmas. It also looks like there will be 3 more books and another Christmas Novella. I love that we continue with the lives of Kauffman's and the families around them.
I found this book to be another great read. A real page turner! This book was about Timothy Kauffman and Miriam Lapp and there stuggles to find Love. A series of lies, and tragedies tear them apart, and Miriam takes the blunt of this.
This book also has some very yummy recipes.
