Book Review, Blog Tour, and Prizes~Beyond Hope's Valley

About Beyond Hope's Valley, book 3 in the Big Sky Series:  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 review:  Tricia Goyer is a talented storyteller. I enjoyed the first two books of the Big Sky series so much, I had a hard time being patient for the third book to come out!  It far exceeded my expectations.  The characters are so realistic, and the author painted the Montana location so well I felt like I was there!The characters and storyline of this series is very different than any other Amish series I've read, and I've read a lot!  Marianna was a sweet amish girl trying to do what her parents and faith dictated, but she has strong feelings for an Englisher.  In this book she is struggling to follow her heart and to follow God's will for her life. I was sad to see Beyond Hope's Valley be the end of this series, but Ms. Goyer did a wonderful job of wrapping everything up-a beautiful story!  I look forward to reading more of Tricia Goyer's books, and HIGHLY recommend Beyond Hope's Valley and the rest of the Big Sky series!
