Beyond Hope’s Valley (Book 3 in the Big Sky Series) by Tricia Goyer

on May 16, 2012

About the Book:

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.

My Opinion:

I was so excited to read this book, not only is it written by Tricia Goyer but I’ve read the other two in the series and this was a wonderful way to finish out the series.  I think that when we read Amish fiction most of their lives are idealized and we see them as people who don’t have problems and don’t struggle with the flesh – but in Tricia’s book, Beyond Hope’s Valley, we see this just isn’t true.  The characters all have their own struggles both within and also with their faith but come out in ways that can’t be easily guessed as you read – just as you think you have it figured out, you realize you don’t!
