Описание

In the final installment of Amy Clipston's Amish Homestead series, Cindy Riehl finds herself searching outside of her community for fulfillment and, with the help of a special friend, realizes what she was looking for was right in front of her all along.

Over the last few years, Cindy Riehl—the youngest of the Riehl siblings—has watched her brothers and sister find love and happiness in Lancaster County. But as her family has settled down and grown, Cindy has continued to grieve her mother, whose death left an enormous hole in her heart. Since that haunting day, Cindy has struggled to find peace and wonders if the community is the place for her—and if her faith in God will ever be like it once was.

When one of the Riehl cows escapes to visit another cow down the lane, Cindy chases after it and meets a handsome Englisher named Drew. As they become friends and eventually much more, she is drawn further and further away from the Amish community and the family she loves. She is suddenly faced with difficult choices that threaten to upend her world.

Will Cindy find happiness of her own? And will she ever be able to overcome her grief and find restored comfort in God and her community?

    This has been one of my favorite books by Amy Clipston. I wasn’t sure how this story was going to pan out in the end. This made me laugh and cry. I hated to see how Cindy and Drew were treated at times by many people. It would be hard to have friends and family turn on you. I loved the many lessons throughout the story. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

    Can you imagine giving up all of your family, your way of life and community, because you fell in love? This is about to be the decision the youngest member of the Riehl family. Now I have read and enjoyed the previous three books, but you can read this one alone, enough information is provided. Now that being said, you will want to read the previous they are that good!There has to be a reason that God placed Drew in Cindy’s path, but with the cultural differences can a relationship survive, or will Cindy have to make the ultimate sacrifice. Answers are here and some are really going to surprise you.I for one am sorry that this is the end of this series, I would love to continue with this family.I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.

    A Welcome at Our Door is the fourth and final book in An Amish Homestead series. We have watched as Cindy’s father and siblings have found love, married and started families of their own. Cindy finds herself lost in her grief and not understanding God’s decisions. Cindy lives in a community where you are not supposed to question God’s will. I do recommend reading this series in order or you will be a little lost. There are a number of characters and it will help you to understand Cindy Riehl. I thought A Welcome at Our Door was well written and it progresses at a good pace which makes for an easy to read story. I was drawn into the story in the beginning and could relate to Cindy’s grief (anyone who has lost a loved can understand). You continue to miss a parent, especially one that you are close to, each day. I have enjoyed visiting the Riehl family in each book and have been wanting Cindy’s story. Amy Clipston brings her characters to life, so they seem like they are real people. They are characters that people will like and can relate to. I liked that there was some humor introduced through Cucumber, the cow with escapee tendencies. We are also introduced to the sweet golden retriever, Bruce. The importance and power of prayer is emphasized in A Welcome at Our Door. It is vital to pray about life changing decisions in our life, so we know if we are following God’s path for our life. Only God knows how our life will play out. There is always a reason for His actions as we see in A Welcome at Our Door. One of my favorite phrases from this story is “God sends us friends when we need them most”. There is some predictability to the story (of course, I have been reading Amish novels for over twenty years), but that does not take away from this touching story. A Welcome at Our Door is a story of grief, love, struggle, faith and family. You will not want to miss Cindy’s heart wrenching and heartfelt story in A Welcome at Our Door.

    "God, I'm so confused, and I need your guidance. Please send me a sign so I'll know if my friendship with Drew is sinful or if you bless it. I can't deny how I feel about him, but I also can't shake this guilt that my family is trying to push on me. Please show me your will."This is a prayer similar to many that young women have prayed over the years but this young woman is a little different. Cindy Riehl was born Amish but for the past seven years she feels like she has been floating, 'not in the Amish world, yet not in the Englisher world either.' Her mother's death robbed Cindy of her best friend and Cindy continues to feel grief and guilt over this accidental death. She also feels like she's the only family member that hasn't been able to move on. Then she meets a young English man who has also experienced loss and Cindy begins to feel that she finally has a friend, someone that she can honestly talk to. This friendship, however, comes at a price. It is frowned upon and she is warned that it could bring judgement upon her and her family. Her father insists that any involvement with Drew must end and once again Cindy experiences grief and loss; once again she feels alone and like a stranger in her own home.Author Amy Clipston has been able show the multiple feelings that the two main characters experience. Tremendous loss, overwhelming grief, immense attraction, and being susceptible to tempation. As I read this story I was reminded that the Amish aren't immune to the emotions that all of us feel and they too struggle with doing what is right. One of the Amish characters admits that "Gossip is sinful, but it exists, even among the Amish." Cindy's decision about whether to join the church is one that many English face and her willingness to sacrifice family ties to be with the person she loves is timeless. It is evident that Clipston truly understands both the similarities and the differences between the Amish and English ways of life and she is an expert in stirring our interest with her stories!A Welcome at Our Door is the final book in Amy Clipston's Amish Homestead series but it can be read as a standalone. I enjoyed this story and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Amish fiction and Christian romance. I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the publisher and Net Galley and was not required to write a favorable review. All opinions are my own.
