The Powerful Conclusion to The Shunning and The Confession!

Katherine Mayfield, the new Mistress of Mayfield Manor, always dreamed of a fancy "English" life. But as the seasons pass, she finds herself grieving the loss of her Amish family and her dearest friend, Mary Stoltzfus. Shunned from the Plain life she once knew, Katherine finds solace in volunteer work with hospice patients -- a labor of love she hopes will bring honor to the memory of her birth mother.

Unknown to Katherine, her long-lost love, Daniel Fisher, is desperate to locate his "Sweetheart girl", only to be frustrated at nearly every turn. Meanwhile, she delights in the modern world -- once forbidden -- cherishing the attention of Justin Wirth, her handsome suitor.

Her childhood entwined with Daniel's, yet her present life far removed from Lancaster County, Katherine longs for the peace that reigned in her mother's heart. And once again, she is compelled to face the heritage of her past.

User Review  - Goodreads

I enjoyed the series as a whole, but did not care for the redundancies of hamming up the religious viewpoints. Plus, everything just falls into place too conveniently. Read full review
