"Gathering the Threads" by Cindy Woodsmall is the third book in the Amish of Summer Grove Series.  The first two are not necessary to read to follow 'Gathering' but it would be helpful.  In this series, Ariana and Skylar are two 20 year olds that have discovered that they were switched at birth.  Ariana was raised in an Amish home and Skylar was raised in a home of a single mother and a married father.  The third novel focuses mostly on Ariana and follows the storyline of her life being governed by a herd of men who seem to live to control her and every woman around them.  That is fairly standard of all women regardless of the society they are brought up in, but Ariana starts to rebel and think for herself, realizing that the threat of hell or manipulation are for the sake of the controller and not the controlee. 

I really liked this book.  The desperate need of men to control women is something that I take a personal interest in.  It has not gone unnoticed that women are held to a different standard.  A much lower standard.  I recommend this book, especially to young women who are looking to find their voice. I received this book I exchange for an honest review from
