Peace in the ValleyO stay with family in Libby where the Amish community has embraced an evangelical form of worship frowned upon by her own parents and district elders in West Kootenai She’s drawn to their unfamiliar worship style use of musical instruments and relaxed form of dressA young preacher begins to woo her spiritually telling her she needs a personal relationship with Jesus in order to flourish as a bel Book 3 wraps up the Amish of Big Sky Country series but you could read it as a standalone As Christians we all struggle with our faith and beliefs at some point and that’s not a bad thing It helps us to understand why we believe what we believe We find answers and grow along the way and that’s what Nora did I have to admit that I struggled some with this book Nora’s parents are very controlling yet the extended family that she stays with is very pushy in their beliefs I didn’t care for the character of Wyatt at all He was strange However the characters were well written and had depth Irvin did a really good job of describing places and situations At the beginning you could almost smell the smoke from the fire and feel the frenzy caused by it The epilogue was well written and wrapped the series up neatly If you enjoy Amish fiction that is different than most then give this one a try I received a complimentary copy of this book but was not reuired to leave a review
