In Gathering Threads we learn that twenty years ago two baby girls born on the same day were switched at birth. One was raised in the Amish world and the other in the Englisch world. The truth was discovered and their lives...

Gathering the threads is the third and final book in the Amish of Summer Grover, series.  I simply adore Cindy Woodsmall and her books with stories about the Amish.  In this book we follow the story of Ariana who has tried to live the life of an English person, but returns to the Amish, to the life and the traditions she loves.  The transition back into the Amish is not smooth or without drama or conflict, as secrets come to light.  Ariana is...

I was so anxious to get this third book in this series and it doesn't disappoint! This series is hands-down one of my favorite in the Amish fiction genre. Some situations left me wondering, "Would this happen to the Amish in "real-life?" Overall, it's a great read. If you're able, read the proceeding two books before reading this one. You won't be disappointed!
