Publisher's Summary

Will returning to their Amish roots renew their faith in each other?

Isaac and David never thought they'd go back to the Amish world. But when Isaac's younger brother is stricken with cancer, they don't hesitate to return. Their relationship is on the rocks after insecurity and fear drove a wedge between them in San Francisco, and David is determined to make things right. Yet if they thought navigating "English" life was confusing, being back in Zebulon is even more complicated.

Their families are desperate to bring them back into the fold, and pressure from the community builds. Isaac and David yearn for a future together, but each day it becomes harder to hide the truth about who they really are. They're caught between two worlds, and if they're not careful it could tear them further apart.

Can Isaac and David make their way back to each other-and find a place to call home?

Contains mature themes.

A wonderful conclusion

A moving and satisfying finale to the series with our boys facing their demons and overcoming the last hurdles to find their happy ever after. Brilliantly written by Keira Andrews and wonderfully told in Audio by John Solo - I highly enjoyed the entire series but this last book was the icing on the cake (or the butter on the noodles?).

I'm sad that this narrator was chosen

I read this series when it was first released and fell in love with it completely. I've re-read it many times, and loved it more each time. It manages to be honest about the Amish lifestyle without being judgmental. It's impossible not to fall in love with David and Isaac, they manage to be the best people while still having depth. The problems they face are reasonable for people being introduced to a world they've lived alongside their whole lives without ever being part of. I love that they always find their strength in their love of each other.

Audio: I had the highest of hopes that this series would be one that I'd re-listen to over and over, but John Solo is an irritating narrator. His weird pauses, off-putting emphasises, and just generally overdramatic presentation made that unlikely. I don't understand why this narrator was chosen, especially since this, her most popular or one of her most popular, series took so very long to be released in audio. It is truly disappointing.

Excellent end of a Gay & Amish trilogy.

This book won't make sense unless you've read "A Forbidden Rumspringa" and "A Clean Break" for the extensive backstory.
The novel highlights the uphill battle Isaac and David have, attempting to come back to their Ur Amish home. The dour bishop and deacon control parents in Zebulon and are given the power to decide a child's access to cancer treatment - such is their power over the child's similarly dour parents.

The characters are well defined and further sharpened by John Solo's outstanding narration.

Lovers Isaac and David work beyond what is reasonable to bring their elders to a point of resolution, but know they can't bring the town to acceptance.

Excellent writing, well craffed plot and diligent research on Amish and their ways, plus Minnesota and San Francisco. I recommend the series.

Finally

*Sigh* I'm so happy for Isaac and David. I wish this series never ended. I'd love to see where their relationship went from there. Also, if any of their siblings left Zebulon also. Medium heat level. No angst. John Solo crushed the narration.

New favorite genre. New favorite author.

I have to say, I’m a little obsessed with the main characters from this series! Keira Andrews did such an amazing job. Isaac and David went such a journey since the first installment - one through which I laughed, I cried, I *whew* had to fan myself. While the love scenes will absolutely “tempt your pants” (as the author writes in one scene), I just love that these books have SO much heart to them.
You really get swept up into this world that is so mysterious to so many of us. I live in an area where there is a robust Amish community, and I’ve always wondered what the struggle must be like for a young gay person being raised in such an environment.

Narrator is insanely good!

I just spent the past week devouring this trilogy. Dear god this was one of the best written m/m love stories and one of the best narrated that I have ever listened too. John Solo brings this entire series to life! Just wow!

Fantastic Series

This was a beautiful ending to an outstanding series. I loved all three audio books about the tender relationship between Issac and David. I thought I knew almost everything about the Amish, having lived near Lancaster, PA. Who knew Amish men went commando? The narrator was awesome; I enjoyed listening to his voice. I am looking forward to other books by this author.

Making a Home

I was worried here and there I. This story as both men had to deal with their issues both individually and as a couple. They had some big things to deal with. They also needed a plan. To move forward. It was great to see them finally really communicate and make plans.

amazing

It's review time 🎧
Warning ⚠️ : Amish religion, male to male love. A lot of s**
Narrator score🎧 ; I really love Jon solo I think she's work is marvelous and incredible and he managed surprise me in my opinion this was the best series that this narrator performed the characters and feelings... i just dont even. John was absalutly extraordinary.

Level of steam🔥: well as they apparently say, the deeper the denial the deeper the desire. It was hot super hot 🔥 those two experimented a lot with their bodies.

Level of anxiety and sadness0😱😢: i have to say it wasn't as terrible as I thought it would, I bought this series as soon as it came out on audible, but it took me a long would to listen to it because I wasn't in the mood to cry my soul out, and though I did cry in some parts of this trilogy, It wasn't as terrible as I thought it will be.

The book itself📖: wow , this author did an incredible research before she wrote the books, and you can see.
Both chapters were beautiful to me, I love them so much. And I will think about those books a lot after today.
Look, I admire this author, because homophobia is a subject that should be spoken about yet, unfortunately .
But it's more than that, she respected a whole community without being ethnocentric, and it's very important that she gave us the listeners/readers the opportunity to be in a world without judging it as a writer.

A decent finish to this series....

***Audio Review***

Decent finish to the series. John's narration of the whole series has been really good, although I do wonder why he over-emphasises some words I have to admit...it can be quite irritating. Deacon Stoltzfus was just as terrifying to listen to as he was to read about. 🤨 My Isaac and my David were a delight, and Aaron and Jen were lovely. This REALLY is one of the best series there is.

***Book Review April 2015***

What a fantastic ending to this series...or is it?? Keira has hinted on Facebook that she may well let the boys have another story further down the line, and for me, THAT can only be a good thing. Isaac and David, MY boys, it has been a pleasure to go on this journey with you. 5 stars. 💜💚🧡💛💙

What really stood out in this one for me was the depth of love these two have for each other AND for the rest of their family, although undoubtedly, some deserved it more than others.

The scene between Melvin and Isaac in the tree-house was brilliant, Melvin doing his very best to understand why Isaac loved David and not a girl. The scene where Aaron discovered that HE was the only one who could help Nathan recover from the aggressive form of cancer he was suffering from, and that their parents might block his help because he was ‘shunned’. David talking to Jen about his anxiety problems and the drinking, and then eventually coming clean to Isaac and confessing he wasn’t finding it as easy to live in the English world as Isaac was..oh, and I mustn't forget where Isaac actually shouted at his parents, the interfering Amish elders and everyone in the whole, wide world that he couldn't go back to being Amish cos he LOVED David, and wouldn't go back to living in the Dark Ages for anything.

There were so many wonderful moments in this story, I just loved it. Already looking forward to the next story with these boys/young men.
