Book Review: Beyond Hope's Valley

After an extended stay in Montana, where Amish traditions are different than in her home state, Marianna Sommer returns to Indiana for two reasons, first to help her brother and his girlfriend prepare for a baby and their wedding. Second, to plan her own wedding to Aaron Zook -- a marriage she’s been dreaming about ever since childhood. And yet, although she had missed the idyllic farms and families of her upbringing, Marianna is surprised that Indiana is somehow making her long now for Montana.
As months pass, secrets that were hidden in winter’s frozen grasp thaw and take on a life of their own.
The truths about a child, about a past relationship, and about God’s plans are being revealed. Walking through a valley of questions, Marianna must hold on to hope as she decides where and with whom her heart truly belongs. For more about this story, watch the interview with folks who inspired the Big Sky series.

Beyond Hope's Valley is the final book in the Big Sky series, and it was wonderful being able to connect once again with Marianna and her family.  Tricia creates characters that truly become a part of your family, so when you open the page to a new book in a series, you feel as though you are coming home.  Which is exactly what Marianna does.
