"Beyond Hope's Valley" by Tricia Goyer

In book #3 of her "Big Sky Series," Tricia Goyer brings Marianna back to
Indiana. Aaron, the man she loves, courts her and we find out they will
marry. But as exciting as this news is, there is a roadblock to their
wedding. Her brother Levi is getting married, but before that wedding, they
find that Naomi (his fiance) is pregnant. As the families face the wait,
changes seem to occur within Aaron. Is he the same man the Marianna fell in
love with? What is causing these strange moods and actions? Faith and love
are put to the test in this series ender. When Ben Stone enters the
picture, how will Marianna react and what will be the outcome? What will
happen to all of the wedding plans? Come back to Indiana one last time, and
see how this wonderful story ends! Even though readers will say goodbye to
the characters, no one will be disappointed.

I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to readers everywhere. I do,
however, suggest reading the first two books in the series for context. The
characters and scenes come alive with Ms. Goyer's words, creating pictures
in reader's minds. The series would make for wonderful discussions in book
groups. I received my free review copy from Litfuse Publicity for
participation in the blog tour.

*Beyond Hope's Valley – Book Three in the Big Sky series*

After an extended stay in Montana, where Amish traditions are different
than in her home state, Marianna Sommer returns to Indiana for two reasons,
first to help her brother and his girlfriend prepare for a baby and
their wedding. Second, to plan her own wedding to Aaron Zook -- a marriage
she’s been dreaming about ever since childhood. And yet, although she had
missed the idyllic farms and families of her upbringing, Marianna
is surprised that Indiana is somehow making her long now for Montana.

As months pass, secrets that were hidden in winter’s frozen grasp thaw and
take on a life of their own. The truths about a child, about a past
relationship, and about God’s plans are being revealed. Walking through a
valley of questions, Marianna must hold on to hope as she decides where and
with whom her heart truly belongs.
