Home to Paradise (Review)
This review is for the book "Home to Paradise" by Barbara Cameron. This is the final book in her Coming Home series, but you can definitely read this book as a standalone novel if you cannot find the other books in the series for some reason. In this book, Rose Anna Zook has watched her two older sisters marry two Stoltzfus men, and always thought she would marry John, the third. But John is in the midst of his Rumschpringe, and doesn't seem to be missing the Amish ways at all. This bothers Rose because she is ready to settle down with John, and she certainly doesn't want to leave the church. She doesn't want to push him because that seems to make him angry, and more resistant to listening to the possibility of returning home. Throughout the book, Rose has to make sure that John not only knows her feelings for him, but her loyalty to the Amish church, and let him find his own way back. I loved this book and the characters in it. There are several sub-plots that add a lot to the story. I would definitely recommend this book.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book.
