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.

In A Promise of Hope, the second installment in the Kauffman Amish Bakery series, bestselling author Amy Clipston continues to unfold the tensions, loves, and faith of the inhabitants of Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, and the family bakery that serves as an anchor point for the series. When Sarah Troyer tragically loses her husband Peter, she is left to raise infant twins alone. Overwhelmed and grieving, she lives with her parents in the Amish community of Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania. Sarah is taken completely by surprise when a stranger arrives claiming connections to Peter’s past—Peter had told her he was an orphan with no family. From Luke, she learns her husband hid a secret life, one with ramifications that will change her own. Sarah’s family, concerned for her and the future of her twins, encourages her to marry again. It should make sense … but Sarah’s heart says no. She feels trapped. Should she marry a man she doesn’t love? Or discover if her growing interest in Luke can be trusted? A Promise of Hope is filled with surprising twists that will grip you to the very last words.

    " The author did a MUCH better job in this book of not repeating as much. I enjoyed the book and loved how she moved to a different member of the family...This one was about the youngest of the Kauffman children who was pregnant when she unexpectedly lost her husband. I really felt for her and her journey to mourn the loss of her husband and deal with the birth. "

    " I enjoyed book 2 in the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series. Sarah Rose Troyerwas so sad & missed her husband Peter, who died in fire at his place of employment was Kauffman & Yoder Amish Furniture.Sarah lived with her parent. She also found out she was having twins. She had a boy & girl on Christmas day.Two amish men were in her life one a friend who lost a spouse ( Norman Zook)& the other a cousin who later turned out to be her brother in-law Luke Troyer. Both of these men care about Sarah Rose. Timothy Sarah Rose's brother new about Peter's secret past but not that Luke was his brother. Timothy was afraid the truth would come out & his family would be mad at him for not telling them the truth. Peter had a child named Cody with DeLana Maloney, but their parents didn't want them to get married. DeLana was English while Petere was Amish.By the end of the story Norman was sad because Sarah Rose turned down his offer to get maaried. She courted luke & I was happy to read that because they seemed to be perfect for each other. He loved the zwillingtonbopplin Seth & Rachael very much & he loved Sarah Rose very much,too!!! I look forward to reading rest of books in this series. I must say I had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next!!! "

    " This has been a wonderful series. As I often say about reading Christian fiction, it's quite uplifting. I've recently made a choice to live more plain and I'm sure part of it has been due to books like this. I love the simple things in life and anything I can do to simplify my life is welcome. I've always been this way and am now fully able to practice it. "
