After a devastating loss, Cindy Riehl is still searching for peace. Will she find it in the community she calls home—or will love send her down a new path?
Over the last few years, Cindy Riehl—the youngest of the Riehl children—has watched her siblings find love and happiness in Lancaster County. But as her family has settled down and grown, Cindy has continued to grieve her mother, whose death left an enormous hole in her heart. Since that haunting day, Cindy has struggled to find peace and wonders if the community is the place for her—and if her faith in God will ever feel the same as it once did.
When a handsome and kind Englisher named Drew crosses Cindy’s path one surprising day, the two of them become fast and easy friends. Drew dreams of starting a family after some losses of his own, and before long, he and Cindy discover that their feelings for each other are romantic. As they spend more time together—often in secret—Cindy is drawn further and further away from the Amish community and the family she loves. In time, she is faced with a difficult choice that threatens to upend her world.
Will Cindy find contentment and love, and will she ever find restored comfort in God and her beloved community? In this final installment of the Amish Homestead series, we return to the charming town of Bird-in-Hand for a story of healing, family, and God’s perfect provision.
Amy Clipston’s latest novel, A Welcome at Our Door is a heartfelt tale. I fell in love with this story multiple times as the pages flew by. Characters who have suffered heavy loses made my heart break. But their meeting and friendships soon bloomed into a beautiful journey. I felt hope regrow within the young Amish woman, Cindy. The themes, family, healing, and faith were a perfect touch. Just enough of each to make this book enjoyable. Then, there were the tough choices that had to be made. A relationship that was frowned upon is left to Cindy to figure out where it will lead her. Will it lead her back to her faith and family, or further apart from them and God? The emotions of loss, trouble, and love hooked me. I couldn’t stop reading this book. Amy Clipston is a talented writer. Overall, I recommend this beautiful Amish tale to all.
