Review: A Season of Love by Amy Clipstone 4 STARS I liked this book. Now I would like to read the other books that Amy Clipston has written. A Season of Love is the 5th and final book of the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series. In this book starts with Lizzie Anne and Samuel have decided to get married. Lindsey has decided that she does belong in the Amish church and she is going to be baptised. Katie Kauffman is feeling left out with her friends new life starting. None of the Amish guys are right for her. Katie runs into Jake Miller and enjoyed thier talk. Jake is a Mennonite and after Katie been baptised its not right for her to be alone with Jake. Jake and Katie's grandfather are building new cabinates for the Kauffman Amish bakery that Katie works in. Katie,Jake and a couple of the bakers are eating lunch together outside of the bakery. The next day Katie makes Jake something for lunch and her mother tells her she can't just make something for him. One after work Katie comes out from the closet and finds everyone has left work. They all travel together by hired car service. Jake offers her a ride home because its raining so hard. Katie is forbidden to talk to him. Her parents don;t believe that it wasn't an accident that she was left behind at work. Katie and Jake both watch each other and try to stay away because they know what happens if Katie gets in more trouble. Lindsey now that she is baptised a member of the Amish church dates Mathew. So both her friends are always talking about thier boyfriends. Katie is more alone then ever. The story lines are good. I wanted to shake Katies family sometimes. Other times I could see thier point. They had a lot of reciepes in the book as you go. That if I wanted to make them would have to search this ebook. I should have saved them. I like the book club questions in the back make me think of things that I did not pay attention to at the time. I don't think I could live without my electric appilances.phones or car. That would be hard to change. But is you feel thats what Heavenly Father is leading you then thats the path to take. Thier was bible verse to help the girls when they were facing hard times and talk of prayer helping. It fit the storyline. Thier is nothing that should offend anyone from reading this novel. I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley. 07/01/2012 PUB Zondervan 304 pages

...the constant repetition of Amish words was tedious. It got to a point where she was inventing statements that no one would ever say just so she could show off her Pennsylvania Dutch. You learned a new word Am- heemet. We got it. I read all five books in the series. They got steadily less interesting with each successive book.

This is the final book in the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series, and how time has flown. It is hard to say goodbye to old friends, but love being updated on everyone. Major life changes abound here for three close friends, Lindsay, Katie, and Lizzie Anne, and then there will be no turning back. These girls are no longer little ones, and have somehow before our eyes grown up. They are now deciding to join the church and taking a life partner, they are moving on. Two of these friends seem to have found that perfect one for them, but Katie sees no one in her future. When we see how Katie’s dad treats her, no wonder she is having problems. I wanted to smack him when he wouldn’t listen to her about those men that were accosting her. Her father has concerns for her faith, and sees a budding relationship between her and Jake a Mennonite, they are Amish and she is baptized. As this story unfolds, you will see how extreme her father goes to keep her Amish. While I hate for this series to end, I loved this book, and wish there was more. I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.

A Season of Love is the fifth book in the Kauffman Amish Bakery series. If you have read the other books in the series, you will be delighted to reunite with old friends. If this is your first venture into the series, you will have no trouble understanding the characters’ history and previous interactions from well written narrative. Katie, Lindsay and Lizzie Anne are best friends and they all stand on the brink of adulthood. Lindsay and Lizzie Anne have begun courting and Katie feels left out. Soon there are more indications that Katie doesn’t fit into the courting couples’ world. A hurt begins deep inside her and widens each time she cannot join in the conversations that keep Lindsay and Lizzie Anne chattering. No one, including Katie’s strict father, seems to value her any longer. That is, until she and Jake Yoder are thrown together at work. Jake is a local young man of the Mennonite faith. He is also a talented carpenter who is asked by Katie’s grandfather to help create and install new display cabinets at the Kauffman family bakery where Katie works. They soon find how easy and enjoyable it is to talk to one another at their lunch break. Those feelings start taking root just as everyone begins telling them that a relationship won’t work. Even though their deep faith is part of the attraction, it is also what must keep them apart. How can these star crossed lovers ever build a solid relationship when Fate has stepped in again and again? The twists in the story will keep you riveted to the very end!

A Season to Love is the final book in The Kauffman Amish Bakery Series by Amy Clipston. I always enjoy reading Amy Clipston’s books and this one follows suit…it definitely won’t disappoint! Katie Kauffman feels like a fifth wheel. Her friend, Lizzie Anne will be getting married soon. Her other friend, Lindsay, is being courted. She feels out of the loop until she starts developing feelings for Jake Miller. The only problem is he is Mennonite and she was just baptized into the Amish faith. Her father is adamant that Katie and Jake stay apart. Will Katie be able to ignore her strong feelings for Jake and move on? Amy Clipston is an amazing author and as soon as I open one of her books I feel like I have been transported to beautiful Lancaster County. I really enjoyed reading all of the books in The Kauffman Amish Bakery Series, but this one is definitely the icing on the cake!

Monday, April 18, 2016 Recap of A Season of Love by Amy Clipston, © 2012, © 2015 The Finale of the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series ~ Book 5 Author's Note: The Making of A Season of Love "A Season of Love was an emotional novel for me to write since it's the final book in my Kauffman Amish Bakery Series. I held back tears when I wrote the final chapter. However, it was fun to revisit all of my favorite characters once more, and I tied up all of the loose ends. I hope my readers will enjoy taking one last journey with the Kauffman family." --Amy Clipston In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. --Matthew 5:16 My Review: This was the first book I read by Amy Clipston when it was released in 2012. It was rereleased with a new cover in 2015. Meet Katie Kauffman: I am a granddaughter of Elizabeth, who owns the Bakery. I have had feelings of anxiety ~ my friends begin their future and I feel I don't fit in my present. I don't fully understand why my father is so against my friendship with Jake Miller. My grandfather Eli has employed him to build new bakery shelving. Jake's mother left the community years earlier to marry Jake's father. Will my father be able to include this grandson of his father's business partner? ~*~ A Season of Love contains strong characters. They strive to know their own minds, but possibly overlook each other's hearts. I found compassion in the grandparents, Eli and Elizabeth, that seemed to be lacking in their son, Robert, Katie's father. Does he have a pain in his heart that needs healing? The storyline brings you into their daily lives. With the conversational writing, some material was repeated speaking to someone else. With Katie's father being so close to the law of his beliefs, he was hindered in truly hearing his family. Reading the earlier books in the series would likely give further insight into his character. There were tense moments and misunderstandings. Growth was evident as the story progressed in the interaction between characters. These are the previous books in the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series: Book 1 ~* A Gift of Grace Book 2 ~* A Promise of Hope Book 3 ~* A Place of Peace Book 4 ~* A Life of Joy Thank you to Zondervan Linked to Lit for sending the initial review copy of Book 5, A Season to Love. This review was written in my own words. No other compensation was received.

Poor Katie Kauffman has found herself in one of the worst predicaments imaginable. After returning back to Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, back to the bakery she loves, she finds her best friends Lindsay and Lizzie Ann have found great Amish men to begin their courting. Katie on the other hand seems to think that she will grow old and only have the love of baking to keep her warm at nights. After finally being baptized as part of the Amish faith alongside her friends, she suddenly finds herself a bit of the odd person out. While Lindsay and Lizzie talk about wedding plans and of what type of life they envision for their families, Katie can't help but feel left out. When she finds comfort in Jake Miller, a boy that works for her grandfather's shop as a carpenter apprentice, she finds herself attracted to him in ways she would have never imagined. She knows there isn't any possibility for them to go any further than just friends. Jake is a Mennonite while she comes from a strong and strict Amish family. They can never been anything more than just friends. However when Katie and Jake find themselves in a compromising situation, Katie's father, Robert rages out of control and ground Katie for a month. He forbids her to have anything to do with Jake even as just friends. However with Jake working with Katie's grandfather Eli on a cabinet for the bakery, it seems that there is more than fate pulling them together. Will Katie find a way to forget what can never be between Jake and herself? Or will Jake's long lost first love, Jessica be the only way out for them both? In the conclusion to the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series, A Season of Love by Amy Clipston takes the reader in the 5th book to see how the remaining characters we've come to love and adore wrap up their lives. Lindsay Bedford returns from Virginia Beach with her GED in hand believing she can be just as smart as her sister, Jessica and finds a way to prove it. Now returning back to Pennsylvania where Katie has been caring for her ailing Aunt Rebecca who has been confined to bed rest due to complications with her pregnancy. Lindsay believes she is finally read to become Amish and in the process will see if love awaits her on the other side. Katie has to deal with her father's issues about dealing with what he believes is proper without waiting for all the facts to come in. It shows how damaging rumors and perception can be to an Amish family and must in fact cost her to be shunned. This is truly an unforgettable novel to wrap up life with the Kauffman family. You can read this one as a stand alone but trust me, you will want to go back and read them all. This is truly an exceptional ending to this series. I received A Season of Love by Amy Clipston compliments of Barbour Publishing and Net Galley for my honest review and I have to say, I gladly give this one a 5 out of 5 stars.
