The Mercy (Rose Trilogy #3) - Beverly Lewis

Summary from Good Reads: Rose Kauffman pines for prodigal Nick Franco, the Bishop's foster son who left the Amish under a cloud of suspicion after his foster brother's death. His rebellion led to the "silencing" of their beloved Bishop. But is Nick really the rebel he appears to be? Rose's lingering feelings for her wayward friend refuse to fade, but she is frustrated that Nick won't return and make things right with the People. Nick avowed his love for Rose--but will he ever be willing to sacrifice modern life for her? Meanwhile, Rose's older sister, Hen, is living in her parents' Dawdi Haus. Her estranged "English" husband, injured and helpless after a car accident, has reluctantly come to live with her and their young daughter during his recovery. Can their marriage recover, as well? Is there any possible middle ground between a woman reclaiming her old-fashioned Amish lifestyle and thoroughly modern man?

This series wrapped up beautifully!  I was pleased to see that Hen and Brandon worked out a compromise in their marriage.  Brandon learned that life was better with God in it!  Rose was battling love again and she followed her heart and God to ensure that she had a love that was right for her.  Nick returned home after finding God's love and wanted the Amish way of life.  Mamma Emma is feeling better after her surgery and physical therapy.

This is only the second series of Beverly Lewis that I have read.  I really enjoyed it and I am looking forward to reading more from her soon.  I love the "soap opera" style of story telling she presents in her serieses.  I also like how you get to know and love the characters as if they were your own family.

Special thanks to Bethany House for allowing me to review this book for them.
