Book Review~Though Mountains Fall

Though Mountains Fall by Dale Cramer is the third book in the Daughters of Caleb Bender series.  It is inspired by actual events!

From the Back Cover: 
"Now in its fourth year, the Amish settlement in Mexico is thriving. But as new settlers arrive, sons and daughters marry, babies are born, and crops grow thick, a storm looms on the horizon. And Caleb Bender knows--perhaps better than anyone--that the worst of storms don't come from the western skies.

They come on horseback.

When their very existence is threatened, the Amish turn to the Mexican government for help, only to discover that the rulers of men are fickle and security is an illusion. Tried by fire and riven by war, Caleb and Domingo come to understand that the kingdom of God is not to be found in land or buildings or gold or armies, but in the hearts of peaceful men trying to feed their families.

Watching helplessly as daughters Rachel, Miriam, and Emma are drawn inexorably toward their separate destinies, Caleb is forced to confront the most important decision of his life."

What I Thought:
The Daughters of Caleb Bender series has been one of my all-time favorite Amish series.  The beautiful setting in the Mexican mountains is unusual-not your ordinary Pennsylvania or Ohio in this book.  I could not put Though Mountains Fall down!  The storyline is full of adventure (of course with some romance), and will keep you on the edge of your seat.    

Disclosure: I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.
