A Time For Peace: Quilts of Lancaster County #3 By Barbara Cameron

I received this e-book from Abingdon Press through NetGalley.com for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this e-book.




Book Description:




After Years of Hardship, Jenny’s Life Appears Perfect. So Why Does Something Seem to Be Missing? Jenny Bontrager is finally at a place of love and belonging with her husband, Matthew, and his children. Life seems golden with both her family and career as a writer.
But everything Jenny now believes in is thrown into question with the discovery of a long-lost letter from her father. Her sense of peace and contentment destroyed by betrayal, Jenny struggles with her renewed faith--and the love of everyone around her.






My Thoughts:






A Time For Peace is the third book in Quilts of Lancaster County Series by Barbara Cameron. I had the pleasure of reading the first two stories in this series and loved them. In  A Time For Peace Jenny Bontrager seems to have it all, a loving husband, loving stepchildren and wonderful friends and family. But something is missing, her inability to have a baby of her own. As she struggles with this her Grandmother becomes very ill and while Jenny is taking care of her she stumbles on a letter from many years ago from her father to her grandmother that rocks Jenny's faith and her relationships.



Barbara Cameron writes with such authority about the Amish, their lifestyles, and beliefs.  A Time For Peace picks up where Book 2 left off.  The characters in this series are beautiful and real. Barbara Cameron does a wonderful job portraying a realistic view of the Amish and show that they also struggle with faith like every other believer out there and that the Amish also deal with the same struggles everyone else does.   She also shows the loving, family dynamic of caring for one another especially the elderly.  Her descriptions of Lancaster County made me feel like I was there with the characters, watching all unfold.  I truly enjoyed this book as much as the first two in this series.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Amish Fiction.  I look forward to reading more books by Barbara Cameron.
