Review & Giveaway: Home All Along by Beth Wiseman

Heidi Reads... Home All Along by Beth Wiseman

My rating: 5 stars / It was amazing


Charlotte has made a home for herself in Amish Country with Daniel. But unforeseen events rock their fragile world and may move them even further away from the life they long for.

Charlotte, an Englisher, is living in Amish Country, and she has formed strong and lasting bonds with the people in her new community. She has even fallen in love with an Amish man. But just when she is considering a permanent conversion to the Amish way of life, her world crashes around her. An unexpected death and a mysterious visitor unsettle Charlotte, and she begins to question her faith and her choices.

Daniel loves Charlotte and wants to share his life with her, even it if means leaving the only world he’s ever known. But as he walks alongside of her through her struggles, his own world is turned upside down when a loved one receives a grim medical diagnosis and a prodigal relative returns home. Will Charlotte and Daniel’s relationship succumb to the many pressures around them, or will their faith and the strong community around them allow them to weather the storms of their own lives in order to build a life together?

My Review

This third book is the conclusion to the Amish Secrets series, and what an outstanding finish! The author did a skillful job of making it readable as a stand alone, offering some insight from the first two books without dumping a summary on the reader. I feel like even though one book leads into the next, they could definitely be read out of order. I loved seeing how much Charlotte had grown since the first book, and the role she played in the life of her sister and niece. She still struggled with her past and the fears that prevented her from moving forward with Daniel, and the gentle wisdom of her Amish surrogate mother sweetly guided her towards discovering God's will for her path. The health problems that plague the two families brought the theme of grief to the forefront, and there are many thought-provoking conversations and internal dialogues that brought depth to the story. Annie became one of my favorites as she matured and stepped up as a leader in her family. And of course, Aunt Faye was quite the show-stealer with her pickled oysters and indomitable spirit. I highly recommend this series to fans of Amish fiction and women's fiction!
