Highly anticipated final book in The Coming Home Series from best-selling Amish author Barbara Cameron.
Rose Anna Zook has watched her two older sisters marry two Stoltzfus men and has always thought she and John, the third Stoltzfus brother, would marry, make a home together, and have children. But John has other ideas. He's enjoying his Rumschpringe in the Englisch world a little too much and isn't interested in returning to the Amish community-especially to marry.
Rose Anna is determined to bring her man back into the Amish fold. John is equally determined to live his life free and unencumbered. Who will win this battle of wills? Will love prevail?
Barbara Cameron has a heart for writing about the spiritual values and simple joys of the Amish. She is the best-selling author of more than 40 fiction and nonfiction books, three nationally televised movies, and the winner of the first Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award. Her books have been nominated for Carol Awards and the Inspirational Reader's Choice Award from RWA's Faith, Hope, and Love chapter. Barbara resides in Jacksonville, Florida.
"Home to Paradise" is the third book the Coming Home series and it is a great conclusion to the series. The focus of this book is on the third Zook sister, Rose Anna, who is eager for her love to return to the Amish community. However, John is enjoying his Rumschpringe a little too much and is not sure if he wants to return to the Amish world and way of life.
This series has been enjoyable and great Amish fiction as Barbara has explored a practice that young people in the Amish community participate in before committing to the church and the Amish way of life for the rest of their lives. This practice is like so many choices that we may have to make that leave us questioning whether they have helped or harmed in the end and question how something has altered the course lives have taken. Has John's experience in the English world helped him to realize what is important in life or has it opened his eyes to the fun that he has been missing out on for so many years and he could experience for years to come if he doesn't return home? This series has been unique and not "just a typical Amish novel" and I found it to be enjoyable and a taste of living Amish, a nice escape from the hectic pace of everyday life.
