I have been waiting to read this third book in The Amish of Summer Grove series. I loved the first two books in the series, though the first book had a very heartbreaking ending. But that part had to happen for the series to continue! Ariana Brenneman is back in her Amish home after her DNA dad let her come home earlier than expected. But she wasn’t the same Ari that left months ago. Living with her English family changed her in ways she never though possible. This didn’t go over well at all with her Amish parents and siblings, with them thinking their Ari would be back and everything would be as it was.

Watching the Amish folks and their actions about the change in Ariana was interesting, but yet I was so angry at her dad, the Bishop and preachers. Their attitude was horrible and was it really bullying instead of trying to get her to see the error of her ways? You and figure that out for yourself when you read the book. Though I really like this book, it didn’t have the same excitement as the first two books. I was surprised and pleased at how Ariana’s English dad treated her. And it was surprising that  she learned so much from him, and I really did too. And I can’t leave out Quill. From the beginning I have liked this guy, though I didn’t really understand him at first. He was an all around good guy!

Gathering The Threads is a really good name for this book because Cindy Woodsmall’s does a really good job of weaving all of the loose ends in this series together and writing a very nice ending that satisfies your soul. One that everyone can live with. I received this book from Blogging for Books  to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
