This book was a wonderful end to the trilogy. My only complaint is some rehashing of already explained ideas, however, that may have been to help keep readers in the loop who haven't read the prior books. In this book, you find out who is behind the mischief. I thought I knew who it was, but the author fooled me! Once again, this is a book that I couldn't put down and finished in a couple of days.
This conclusion to the trilogy was so good. It finally addressed all of the threads of the story line that had been left dangling. The crisis and resolution was so surprising and satisfying. A well-written novel with intriguing characters.

I found the book to be a good read.The plot to had diffferent aspects to it which kept me reading it. The writing fowed well and kept my interest. A good book to read on a Saturday afternoon with a good cup of coffee.
This is the third and last book in The Riverhaven Years. In the first two books, Rachel's Secret and Where Grace Abides, the reader was left with a cliff hanger. All the ends were not tied. At last in this one, the ends are finally tied up and all is woven together.
Taking place in the 1850s this book shows the basic beliefs of the Amish haven't changed that much over time.

It has become a habit for me to read all the books in a series and then write a review of the series. This is a review of The Riverhaven Years, a trilogy set in pre-Civil War years. Some of the people in the stories are involved in the Underground Railroad The main focus in the stories is the romance that developed between Rachel, a young Amish widow. and an Irishman who landed on her doorstep in the middle of a stormy night, wounded and possibly not even going to survive. Because he was not Ami...more
Amish Mystery

Amish Mystery

This was a great mystery as well as Amish love story. I definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a great Amish love story.
I loved this last book to the Riverhaven Years Series. BJ Hoff did not disappoint! I felt like this one had a lot more suspense to it, and several good story lines going on at once. The ending was perfect!

This was the third book in the Riverhaven trilogy and I must say that I am disappointed to say goodbye to these God-fearing, righteous Amish people who struggle with many of the same things we Englischer
( auslanders) do. I recommend all three books, especially if you are interested in either the Amish oe the Underground Railroad.

A really interesting and good conclusion to this trilogy! Though there were cliff hangers in the 1st and 2nd book, I didn't mind, there are other authors who do that, also. I really enjoyed reading this book!
This was a outstanding series. I was a little skeptical because of the "English" in the story but they were remarkably written in for a perfect series. Plenty of story line and character development.
I really like this book. Finally the conclusion to the Riverhaven Years trilogy. Spoiler: Rachel and Jeremiah finally get together after many trials and troubles!!

Third book in series. I enjoyed the finality of the series and the journey each character traveled to get there.
Note: I read this as a free eARC from Netgalley.
I love this series. It is a sweet trilogy of love and faith in God.
Mary Ellen
