The Beloved Hope Chest is book four in the Amish Heirloom series. It can easily be read as a stand alone if you have not read the other novels leading up to it. However, this story is even richer in meaning if you have read the other books. So, whether you read books one through four in order, or read this book and go back to read the others, this is a series not to miss!
The Amish Heirloom series is definitely one of my favorites and The Beloved Hope Chest has zoomed up to the number one spot as my favorite book of the series. It is simply packed with deep emotional issues! There were so many heartbreaking ups and downs along with uplifting moments of hope that kept me reading and reading. I could hardly set this book down!
One of my favorite parts of this novel was reading the letters, especially the ones written by Leroy. They felt so real, like I was really seeing into this character’s heart. Reading this book makes me want to go back and re-read the others in the series soon. I highly recommend this novel for fans of Amish fiction.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
In the final installment of the Amish Heirloom series, the Fisher sisters learn the mystery behind their parents’ marriage—and about the sibling who has never been spoken of.
Mattie Fisher’s three daughters know that she’s been keeping a secret from them. With each item pulled from the beloved family hope chest, they’ve discovered a new clue about their mother’s past.
But there’s a reason Mattie has been keeping her history hidden, and she’s not sure she’s ready to reopen old wounds. Will dredging up the past change the way her children view her? Or her marriage to their father? And can she handle the pain of revisiting the memories that preceded the last few happy decades?
Mattie’s story is one of grief and learning to love again. But like the best things preserved in a hope chest, it’s a story of love and redemption born out of heartache—and it’s past time to share it.
