Publisher's Summary

Rose Kauffman pines for prodigal Nick Franco, the Bishop's foster son who left the Amish under a cloud of suspicion after his foster brother's death. His rebellion led to the "silencing" of their beloved Bishop. But is Nick really the rebel he appears to be? Rose's lingering feelings for her wayward friend refuse to fade, but she is frustrated that Nick won't return and make things right with the People. Nick avowed his love for Rose - but will he ever be willing to sacrifice modern life for her?

Meanwhile, Rose's older sister, Hen, is living in her parents' Dawdi Haus. Her estranged "English" husband, injured and helpless after a car accident, has reluctantly come to live with her and their young daughter during his recovery. Can their marriage recover, as well? Is there any possible middle ground between a woman reclaiming her old-fashioned Amish lifestyle and thoroughly modern man?

'Tis a gift to be simple: listen to more of The Rose Trilogy.

Great Third Book

What did you like best about this story?

Everything! The characters were believable. The story continued from the first two books seemlessly.

What about Christina Moore’s performance did you like?

She was perfect for this narration. The accent she used made her seem like she was familiar with the Amish. LOVED!

Any additional comments?

This book does not dissappoint! If you read the first two, you need to read this one too!

She was ok

Any additional comments?

I loved this trilogy and can't wait for the next one from Beverly Lewis. I have read most of her books and just love them. I can't put them down once I get started reading them. This is the first trilogy I listen to on audible and I enjoyed it very much.Christina was ok she could of been a little better at separating each person in the book. But over all she did an ok job...
