A Life of Joy (Kauffman Amish Bakery #4) by Amy Clipston
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Amy has done it again...another great book in the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series.
Four years ago Jessica and Lindsey Bedford came to live with their Aunt and Uncle Rebecca and Daniel Kauffman, when their parents were tragically killed. Jessica is now in college and taking an internship in NY City and wants Lindsey to join her.
Lindsey has embraced the Amish way of life in all ways, except by joining the Church. She loves working in the bakery, helping Aentie Rebecca, caring and playing with her little cousins. She also is starting to have feelings for Matthew Luntz. She is searching her heart and in constant prayer for answers.
When a call comes that her Aunt Trisha has broken her leg, and Uncle Frank needs help. She decides to return to her former home in Virgina Beach. She leaves with some reluctance as her Aentie has not been feeling well, and just found out she is pregnant. Rebecca advises Lindsey to go!
You have to wonder will Lindsey now want to go back to her life as an English woman, or yearn for a quieter more peaceful life of the Amish?
This book does end in what I felt was a cliff hanger, need the next book in this series....soon!!
I was provided with a copy of this book by Netgalley and the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.
