Unique Amish Historical from a Bestselling, Award-Winning Author

Amish pacifism is sorely tested in the Paradise Valley settlement in the 1920s. When an army of bandits descends on them, the Amish are saved by the last-minute arrival of government troops. But they soon learn that soldiers can be as cruel as the bandits themselves. Then a bishop travels to Mexico, and Caleb's daughters are finally able to marry, though the ban still looms for Miriam even as her beloved Domingo decides he must go off to fight in the coming war. As Caleb's frail hope of peace and freedom in Mexico slips away, he is left to ponder the question: In times of trouble, on whom should we rely?

A must read, but please read 1 & 2 in the series first. There is much turmoil as time progresses for the Bender family and other Amish families that are living in Mexico. The bandits have chosen a time to attack the Amish and just as the last of them are entering the safety of Hacienda El Prado the federales finally show up to protect them also. Once the bandits are captured and/or killed everyone returns home. A Bishop finally arrives so people can be baptized  and married, things are looking up. After some time they find that the federales are just as bad, if not worse, than having bandits in the area. Now there is nothing they can do but give up their horses, food, hay, etc for little or no money or it will be taken from them anyway. Men get drunk, women are raped and men are beat up, all of this is after the fedearales arrive, things aren't going as well as they should be with the Bishop among them and officers of the law to protect them. What will they do? They have lost family members in this land and if they return to America they'll never be able to visit their graves again. No one is buying land in Mexico, so the will all return broke if they decide to go. If you had to choose to leave loved ones behind and a beautiful land that has produced well for you or stay and feel like you were getting robbed by the government what would you do? I felt that this book held my attention even more than the first two in the series and since I read before going to sleep, I found myself dreaming about things that were happening in this chapter of the Bender family's life. I definitely recommend this series, it's not your run of the mill Amish storyline. Thank you to Bethany House for providing this book for review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255

A Series I Won't Soon Forget! This conclusion to the series, The Daughters Of Caleb Bender, will stay with me for awhile. I feel like I need to just sit and let it all sink in. This book is a real page turner and was so full of emotion right down to the last page. If you are looking for a feel good book where everything is predictable and blah...this isn't the book for you. If you are looking for a book that will take you through every emotion of your being...this is for you. I laughed, I cried, I felt anger rising in me as I read about some horrible injustice taking place. I admire the author as he did not hold back anything as he described several horrifying scenes in this book. The family of Caleb Bender will go through many hardships and heartbreak while living in Mexico. You, as the reader, will go through their many hardships and heartbreak with them. Will love conquer all? Will this family be able to forgive others as well as each other? Will their trust and faith in God leave them? If you haven't read Paradise Valley and The Captive Heart, the first two books in this series, I urge you to do so. This last book, Though Mountains Fall, will have more meaning to you. Thank you Dale Cramer for a series I will not soon forget. I hope that someday you will write a follow-up book that will tell us what happened to the Bender family after this book. I for one would like to know!

This story is definitely worth reading along with the other two in the series. The books are well written and can easily stand on their own. You will get more out of the overall plot if you start with the first one, Paradise Valley. The suspense, heart wrenching moments, and bright spots kept me hooked. I read a review that mentioned they were disappointed with the setting description. The story had enough description for the overall feel of the environment. The novel was focused on the characters and theme, which were fleshed out well. I look forward to reading more of Dale Cramer's books. He did an exceptional job with this series.

A cliff hanger! Awesome writing. Couldn't put the series down. Read the three books in 6 days. If i had more time, they would have been read sooner. Although, I wish they wouldn't have ended as quickly as they did (my own fault).

Book three in this series. I loved this unique , historically correct culture shock of an Amish settlement in Mexico. Set in the 1920's during the Mexican christian wars, this series is full of action. I don't think it falls under any genre because it is all packed in three books. All genres are found in here. I wish it didn't end. But all great tales come to an end. I highly recommend this series. Paradise Valley is the first and nook readers the first is free. God Bless.

Just finished the 3rd book in this series. This has been a great read...so different from other books written about the Amish. This series has been loaded with non stop action with great characters! And it is always a pleasure to read a well edited series!

This series has it all; love, faith, loss, challenges, tears, successes, and family. A must read. I truly was dreading the end of the series, so much I kept glancing at the number of pages left.
