Review of "Gathering the Threads" by Cindy Woodsmall

This is the third book in the Amish of Summer Grove Series. Ariana has returned to her Amish family but not without struggles.She has become an independent thinker which has created conflicts with her Amish parents, boyfriend, and the church. She struggles with her Amish faith and way of life and the new English ways she has learned from her birth parents. She struggles to find who she really is in her work and in love. The book does a great job in exploring the characters and all the relationships between the Amish characters and those who have left the faith. It also brings a close to the mystery of why Quill and Freida had to leave and how the Amish culture is impacted by the laws of the English world. The relationship of the 2 girls who are switched at birth is also developed. The story is a feel good , positive story with twists along the way. I would highly recommend the entire series. Disclaimer. I received the series from the publisher at no cost to review
