Gathering The Threads is the 3rd and final novel in the Amish of Summer Grove Series.  I began reading this novel, unknowingly that it was the 3rd in the series, missing the first 2 novels.  The author, Cindy Smallwood, does a great job in Gathering The Threads of recapping the last 2 stories in the beginning of the novel so that readers have a refresher before returning to Summer Grove, as well as to someone like me that missed the first two novels in the series.  With that said, I quickly understood the background of the story as well as the characters and their relationships.  I was  immediately interested in the many plots in the story line, and connected with the characters.  Gathering the Threads has highs and lows that pull at your heart strings!

The author did a wonderful job mixing in the new with the old.  I have never read an Amish based novel quite like Gathering The Threads.  This is also my first read from Cindy Smallwood.  I look forward to reading more from her, and even finishing the series, even though I am out of order!

Cindy Woodsmall is a New York Times and CBA bestselling author of numerous works of fiction and one of nonfiction. Her connection with the Amish community has been featured widely in national media. She lives in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains with her family.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
