    I LOVED this story!!!!!!!! I think the author has written her best work ever with a compelling story and characters it is impossible to dislike (ok, with the exception of a couple). I found this book heartbreaking and heartstopping at the same time. This book is just magnificent!!!!!!I instantly fell in love with Priscilla and Mark. Priscilla has been emotionally and physically abused by her ex-boyfriend and son Ethan's father, Trent. It was easy...

    This was a story that certainly touched my heart. I was quickly engrossed and unable to put it down. Priscilla's life held a whole lot of heartache but she was a a fighter on a mission to secure a better life for her young son and herself. The hope for everything to work out for her was an easily catalyst for finishing the book quickly.My heart really went out to Priscilla's character. When conflict arises, her instinct is to run from it in order...

    A Seat by the Hearth is book three from Amy Clipston's Amish Homestead series. I enjoy this Amish story, though not as much as the other books in the series. I liked Priscilla and Mark's story but it was a little slow for me. I did have to put it down for a bit to get back into the story again. I believe A Seat by the Hearth is worth a read. I am give this book three stars.

    I enjoy books about the Amish way of life and romances, but I have to admit that Mark and Priscilla's journey to happily ever after frustrated me. I knew how it had to end and was pleased with the ending but it took sooooo long to get there. They both were so very stubborn.I received an ARC from the publisher through NetGalley. The opinions expressed in this review are solely my own.

    This is one of those books where the main characters are blind to what's going on and you spend a good portion of the book yelling at them to open their eyes. As usual with every Amish romance I've ever read, things work out and there's a happily ever after.*free ARC from netgalley

In order for her to stay, her father lays down some rules: she must re-join the church, serve her shunning time, and find a husband.Mark R...

He doesn’t see himself settling down with any of the young ladies who seem to trail after him. When Priscilla comes home after eight years in the English world with her small son, he seems drawn to her as he works for her father. However, she seems just as determined to keep him at a distance. S...

    Pricilla and Mark's whirlwind romance rocked me to my core. This by far is one of Amy Clipston's most emotionally books ever. I cried more then ever before, but then was over with the warmth and faith she threw after every heartbreaking scene. Beautiful and satisfying. A MUST READ!
