Finding peace means letting go of the past—and embracing the change that is to come. 


Sisters Esther and Lizzie have a new employee, Rose Petersheim, to help them tend to The Peony Inn. But their old matchmaking ways have stayed the same. The sisters focus their efforts on the lovely twenty-five-year-old Rose. Though Rose is witty and outspoken, her nervous chattering makes her the best match for someone calm and good at listening. Someone like Benjamin—the handsome handyman who recently moved to town. 

But when Esther receives an anonymous love letter and flowers, Rose’s love life is no longer the onlyn one capturing the sisters’ attention. As they sleuth around searching for Esther’s secret admirer, they uncover that their grumpy renter, Gus, has a secret of his own that could bring about a difficult change in all their lives. And their continued meddling in Rose’s affairs reveals she, too, is hiding something—an old wound that could threaten her future happiness. 

As Rose, Lizzie, Esther, and Gus struggle to release the weight of their pasts, they discover that although people are complicated, love doesn’t need to be. 

This charming third installment of the Amish Inn series from bestselling author Beth Wiseman is a picture of loss and healing in which forgiveness will prove to be the greatest act of love.


Marilyn's thoughts:    

A Season of Change is a delightful story filled with relatable characters that had flaws along with beautiful characteristics. It was nice to catch up with the characters of this series and being introduced to Benjamin. Rose and Benjamin are opposites but Esther and Lizzie were still sure of a match.  I laughed often reading this tale with the antics of the different major characters.  Beside the lovely romance story the theme of overcoming the past and finding peace with God was lovely woven in. There were tender and emotional moments that had me in tears with a character facing death. This is my favorite book in this series with the wit and pain of the characters and the unpredictability of what was going to happen. I couldn’t stop reading till the end. I highly recommend reading the entire series in order for fans of Amish fiction and romance.

 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Zondervan through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
