About The Book:
In the fifth and final novel of the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series, three young women are about to change their lives. Lizzie Anne and Samuel have decided to get married, and Lindsay is about to be baptized in the Amish faith and is courting Matthew. While Katie Kauffman is happy for her friends who seem to have settled their futures, she is also finding herself something of a fifth wheel.When Lindsay's sister Jessica returns to Bird-in-Hand, she finds that Jake Miller has moved on with his life. He lost hope that Jessica would ever be satisfied to settle in rural Pennsylvania and takes comfort in becoming close friends with Katie. However, it's not an easy road as Jake is Mennonite and Katie has just been baptized in the Amish faith. Her father forbids them to see each other, adamant that his daughter marry an Amish man. A Season of Love is filled with surprising twists that will grip you to the very last words. As the stories of your favorite Amish community draw to a close, join Lindsay, her friends, and all the people of Bird-In-Hand for one last volume.
Café Lily’s Review:
If you’ve been following the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series, then you know you’re in for a treat with the final book in this series. It’s like meeting up with old friends and catching up. Love always seems to be swirling in the sweet town of Bird-In-Hand, Pennsylvania. In this book, Katie Kauffman finds herself falling for Jake Miller, who is “off limits”. And Katie’s overbearing father does his best to make sure nothing will ever come of the friendship she has with Jake. Poor Katie feels like she’s on the outside looking in, watching all of her friends find their soul mates and settling down. Since this is the last book in a series, I do think that reading these in order is important to understand the back story of the Kauffman family. I love that Amy Clipston includes some yummy recipes in these books and this last one did not disappoint me! The Cheese Cupcakes sound very tempting! And if you’ve been wanting to make a Peanut Butter Pie, Amy includes a great recipe for that as well.
