What will happen if she sows seeds of unrest and rebellion in the entire family?
Meanwhile, Skylar Nash has finally found her place among the large Brenneman family, but Ariana’s arrival threatens to unravel Skylar’s new identity—and her sobriety.

My Take: This is the third and final book in the Series The Amish of Summer Grove, I have enjoyed all of the books that I have read by Cindy Woodsmall. She writes the Amish as real people not some goody goody people who don't do any wrong. Any way This book has Ariana and Skylar both displaying what they have earned in their time with their respective biological families. I would recommend reading the first books in the series so you can see what transpired. Recommended for people who like their Amish Fiction with realism. I really enjoyed this series. I received a review copy from Litfuse in exchange for my honest opinion.
