This book was a lot different than most Amish books. The first two in the series was as well, but this on was even more. Ariana is back from her Englisher family, but shes not the same. Disappointing her parents because they are the same, just relieved to have their daughter home. And Ari has lots of questions about why they are living as they are, and if the Amish faith is really everything its cracked up to be.
I was surprised as well as really irritated at Ariana’s dad, the Bishop and leaders of the Amish church and community. They were so adamant about Ariana doing as they said they had no compassion at all toward her. And it surprising that she learned so much from her real life Englisher dad. Quill was a big help in Ari’s life, because he was in the Englisher world and knew what Ariana was facing.
In Gathering The Threads 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. But I have to say, for some reason, the cover just doesn’t match the story. 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. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
