DO NOT be daunted by the fact this is supposed to be book thirteen in a series. It’s the first one I’ve read, and it’s a perfect standalone book.

Since discovering that I really like Patricia Davids’ writing and themes, I’ve been powering through her Amish romances. The problem is that I’ve been reading everything backwards, starting with her upcoming book and then moving onto the one before it, and then the one before that! The author’s next series continues on from th

Wow! What a captivating story! Both Joshua and Mary are so positive about their futures despite their rocky pasts. Love that they are both moving forward, anchored in their faith when they first meet. Their relationship develops gently in the midst of the chaotic aftermath of a tornado. I particularly adored Joshua's interactions with Mary's daughter, Hannah. There's something so compelling about a man who loves kids. But there's also these secondary plot threads that intertwine into a surprisin ...more

"The final Brides of Amish Country book will make readers feel the characters’ fears of being trapped in a tornado and then having their secrets come to light. The little bit of mystery thrown in is a welcome addition to this tale of Englisch and Amish coming together in times of tragedy" (RT Book Reviews, 4 stars).

An Amish Homecoming

Joshua Bowman is ready to go home. After spending time in prison for a crime he didn't commit, he's putting everything behind him and reconciling with his fractured family. When a devastating tornado throws him unexpectedly into the path of Mary Kaufman and her daughter, Hannah, he feels the first spark of life after months. But Mary's adoptive dad is the Englisch sheriff—and he'd never trust her care to a man with Joshua's past. Plus the lo

While I am so sad to say goodbye to Hope Springs and the Brides of Amish Country series, I couldn't have asked for a more fitting finale. Focusing on characters that fans grew to love in book 6 - A Home for Hannah - this book also introduced the family of brothers that provide the foundation for Davids' new The Amish Bachelors series. Amish Redemption is an example of what Patricia Davids does best - building a sweet love story around winsome characters and a message of faith. I was so glad to s ...more

Amish Redemption by Patricia Davids, is a fresh retelling of the story of the prodigal son, Joshua Bowman, as he returns to his family's Amish farm. This is the last book in the "Brides of Amish Country" series, but this sweet read can easily standalone. The story begins when Joshua, recently returned home from prison for a crime he did not commit, saves Mary Kaufman, an Amish woman and Hannah, her young daughter from a fierce tornado. An unexpected twist occurs when we realize that Mary's adopt ...more

I thought this was a good end to the 'Brides of Amish Country' series. It brought back Mary, who was a relatively minor character in an early book, and introduced Joshua, who isn't even from Hope Springs to begin with (he is in town on a family errand).
While I thought it was sad that the town had to go through the tornado, I liked that it not only served as a means for Joshua and Mary to meet, but brought the town and surrounding communities (and communities of Amish even further afield) togethe

A wonderfully tender story with lots of Suspense. I loved this book so much and fell in love instantly with Joshua, Mary, and Hannah. In addition to the book being well written, I loved the Inspirational thread throughout the book. I was sad to see the book end. I just learned that Joshua and Mary will be secondary characters in the new series by Patricia Davids so I cannot wait to read those books as well.

A wonderful little quick read that had a little suspense in it. I like the way they brought the 2 of them together when they both had gone through rough patches in they're lives. I really enjoyed how at ease he was with Hannah and they each didn't pass judgement on what they'd been through in the past. ...more

Amish Redemption is the 12th story written by Patricia Davids in her Brides of Amish Country series. This series just keeps getting better with every story that gets added to it. I enjoyed this storyline a great deal. It plays out nicely.

The characters are wonderful and well thought out. I enjoyed Joshua's character because of all the troubles he has endured but still remains strong, loving, and strong in his faith. This journey starts out with a devastating tornado that destroys the little town

The hero and heroine in Amish Redemption had a lot to overcome. Patricia Davids created an unique plot with characters that faced realistic issues. I was right in the midst of all the action and emotions of the characters. There were times of danger, false accusations, community members aiding others along with the tender moments. Amish Redemption definitely can be read as a standalone book, even though it's the last one in the series. I would like to find the earlier ones in this series to read ...more

I love Amish fiction to begin with...this was excellent and not the usual fare. 2 people with dark secrets in their pasts thrown together in a disaster. Interesting, diverse characters; unexpected problems; unexpected feelings - all combine together well. The author lives just down the highway from me which made it even better for me - a local writer! Totally loved it and will be looking for more of her work to read.

Sad to see Brides of Amish County end.

I love this series and am sad to see it end. It was a series that was truly uplifting. I loved the characters and how they flowed between the books. It really mAde you feel as if you lived in Hope Springs and you are a part of this community. A must read.

Another fantastic book by Patricia. Joshua and Mary both have secrets that could ruin their relationship from the start. Joshua grows close to Mary and her daughter when he saves them before a tornado reaches them. The bond grows stronger but will faith keep them together.
