Miriam Lapp must return to the Amish community of her youth to say goodbye. But goodbye is sometimes easier said than done.

When Miriam Lapp left the Amish community of Bird-in-Hand three years ago, she put the past behind her. But when her sister calls with news that their mother has died suddenly, Miriam swallows her pride one last time and travels back to Pennsylvania.

Miriam’s resolve to stay aloof from the Amish community falters when she learns that the rumors that broke up her engagement with Timothy Kauffman years ago were lies. Could it be that she threw away a chance at life and love, all for nothing? If Timothy weren’t already engaged to marry another woman, maybe they could rekindle their love, but Miriam realizes the past is past. She would never do to Timothy’s fiancée what was done to her. She returns to Indiana hurting, but knowing she did the right thing.

When Miriam’s family calls on her for help, she once again steps up to the task, knowing her sacrifice will yield her no personal gain. But it turns out that peace often surpasses our understanding, and love finds us in the most unlikely of circumstances.

Take a trip to Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, where you’ll meet the women of the Kauffman Amish Bakery in Lancaster County. As each woman’s story unfolds, you will share in her heartaches, trials, joys, dreams...and secrets. You’ll discover how the simplicity of the Amish lifestyle can clash with the “English” way of life—and the decisions and consequences that follow. Most importantly, you will be encouraged by the hope and faith of these women, and the importance they place on their families.

    " Aahhh! I love/hate books when you know what you want to happen and you know it is going to happen, but something always gets in the way until the very end!!!! Looking forward to reading #4! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy Wolfgram | 2/16/2014

    " It is unfortunate that time was wasted all because of jealously, but as God always has in His plan, things work out according to His plan. Good reads! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joann10 | 1/30/2014

    " This is by the far the slowest Kaufmann Amish Bakery series book. Overall is was a quick, easy read, enjoyable although a little predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 India Sturgill | 1/28/2014

    " In the third book of the Kauffman Amish Bakery series Miriam Lapp returned to the community after four years of being away. When she left she left a fiance and many angry members behind. She never moved on from Timothy Kauffman and neither did he. I really liked this book. It was one that I couldn't put down. I wanted to see if Timothy and Miriam would get a second chance at love. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeni | 1/24/2014

    " I've been sucked into many of the Amish fiction books after being fascinated by the culture. I liked the first in this series but was disappointed in this one. To much back and forth, over the same situation with a predicable outcome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marg | 1/20/2014

    " Excellent bok and a very enjoyable series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 1/20/2014

    " Lots of misunderstandings in this novel and the ending exchange between Miriam and Timothy felt forced. Predictable happy ending. Plus is that family trees were included at the front and I referred to them more than once. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brandi | 1/9/2014

    " Easy read, a little predictible "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wanda Ballou | 12/29/2013

    " This book gives you hope. Can all your pain, emotional stress and unhappiness turn around. If you believe hard enough, can all this and more be corrected. Makes you believe the impossible can happen ... Sometimes. Great book to bring some tears and a smile in your heart. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy Iliff | 12/3/2013

    " While I enjoy this series, this particular one got a little long - so I skipped the middle to the last 3 chapters. I'm pretty sure this had more to do with me than the plot. Jumping to conclusions and assuming you know what the other person is thinking gets really old after 50 pages or so. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeni | 11/23/2013

    " I have really enjoyed Amy Clipston's series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Devon | 9/17/2013

    " I love the struggle between faith and feeling incapable that is the main take-away from this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy Fritz | 9/1/2013

    " This is book #3 of the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series. Each book in the series gets better and better right through all 5 books. I've read this entire series and I would definitely reread it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra | 6/11/2013

    " Sweet story. The amount of misunderstandings seemed to pile up which mafe think enough already. But still pleasant read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marti | 5/19/2013

    " So Amish with lots of pithy wisdom and Bible Verses. The book makes you take a deep breath and step back... Forgiveness is the key element in this book about the Amish Bakery. Forgiveness for your family and yourself.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 10/23/2012

    " Another great book! I must say, my favorite part of these series is all the Amish recipes. I can't wait to get baking! "
