I might have started the third book in the Rose Trilogy as soon as I finished the second book because I couldn't wait to find out what happened!!! I promise The Mercy (The Rose Trilogy, Book 3) (Volume 3) by Beverly Lewis won't disappoint!! It was a great end of a great series that really had you wondering what was going to happen next in this small Amish town.
Rose Kauffman pines for prodigal Nick Franco, the Bishop's foster son who left the Amish under a cloud of suspicion after his foster brother's death. His rebellion led to the "silencing" of their beloved Bishop. But is Nick really the rebel he appears to be? Rose's lingering feelings for her wayward friend refuse to fade, but she is frustrated that Nick won't return and make things right with the People. Nick avowed his love for Rose--but will he ever be willing to sacrifice modern life for her?
Meanwhile, Rose's older sister, Hen, is living in her parents' Dawdi Haus. Her estranged "English" husband, injured and helpless after a car accident, has reluctantly come to live with her and their young daughter during his recovery. Can their marriage recover, as well? Is there any possible middle ground between a woman reclaiming her old-fashioned Amish lifestyle and thoroughly modern man?
Loved this series!! I always think that the series that I just finished was better then all the rest but I really wanted more of these great characters and was sad to see this series end with this book. I was hoping that things were going to turn out well for Rose and Hen, Amish sisters who both fell in love with English men while being Amish. This was a hard decision for both of them because they loved their family and were trying to decide what to do to continue their life with the decisions that they had both already made. This is the great conclusion to a wonderful series. I didn't see the end coming but I was glad that some of the issues discussed through the series were resolved. I don't want to ruin it for anyone who is going to read the series but it was a happy ending for everyone!! I hope that you check out this series and book for yourself soon. I hope that you like it as much as I did!!
