Through the Autumn Air (Every Amish Season #3) by Kelly Irvin






A mysterious English stranger appears in Mary Katherine Ropp’s kitchen one autumn night, heralding the beginning of a new chapter in the widow’s life.

The mother of ten, Mary Katherine is an empty-nester who lost her husband four years earlier. She misses her husband so much, she still talks to him. She pours her creative spirit into writing stories and serves as the district’s Budget newspaper scribe. An avid reader, her dream is to open a bookstore with her English friend, but the church elders want this wayward widow to work in an Amish-owned combination store.

When an English man breaks into her house looking for food, Mary Katherine doesn’t call the sheriff. She turns to her good friend, Ezekiel, who needs a cook at the restaurant he started after his wife died ten years earlier. Mary Katherine and Ezekiel set out separately to make sure their new friend isn’t caught up in the investigation, and their efforts keep bringing them together. They’re both still so in love with their long-gone spouses, so when the sparks begin to fly, they are beyond confused. Is it possible to find “The One” more than once in a lifetime?

But as Mary Katherine stands by her dear friend after the death of her husband, Mary Katherine is reminded of the terrible risk in giving her heart to someone. Can these two people, well-versed in the pain of loss, put the past behind them and trust in the hope of the future?

My Review




I enjoyed this story, and it focuses on moving on after the death of a spouse, now these are seniors, but still with a lot of living to do. In the end, there are three hurting from the loss of a spouse, two Amish and one English.
Our English fellow Burke shows up in an Amish home stealing food, so when all sorts of things go missing from local homes, Amish, he becomes the suspect. Now who would steal a pot holder?
Will these hurting individuals who have found each other be able to move on in this life, or will they continue to just live each day?
Now this is the third book in this series, but I feel you can read it alone, although I have read the other two and enjoyed them.

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.
