A Time For Peace - Barbara Cameron Review and Giveaway

Publisher:  Abingdon Press
Pages:  288 pages
Source:  I received a copy for review from the publisher
Genre:   Adult, Amish, Christian

In "A Time For Peace", the third book in the Quilts of Lancaster County, we find issues that make us say, "Wow, even the Amish have the same trials we have".  It seems that each book in this series was better than the one before it.  I really enjoyed this one.  I guess because I could sympathize with Jenny and the secrets she learns.  This book looks at the "what-ifs and deals with how those "what-ifs" are handled.

In previous books Jenny finds herself at her Amish grandmother's house after an injury that almost killed her.  She meets up with someone that she had strong connections with in the past.  Someone she loved very much before her life took a different turn.  She and Matthew, who had lost his wife and was left with three kids,  reconnected and God led them together to form a family.

Then in the third book Jenny's grandmother becomes ill and Jenny brings her into their home, to stay in the Dawdi house so that she can look after her.  While removing things from her grandmother's house she discovers some things that hurt her deeply.  She learns of secrets that had been kept from her for years.  These secrets had she had knowledge of them earlier in life may have changed the course of her life.  Now she questions where God was in all of this and must once again look long and hard at those she loves.  She must once again lean on God to help her forgive those who hurt her.

It is so hard not to give away things that would spoil the book when you have a book as good as this one.  Barbara is one of my favorite Amish authors  so it makes it difficult not to want to shout all the good stuff to the world.  this is a definite must read.

I have been given a book for a giveaway.  To enter please leave a comment and your email address.  I will use to choose a winner on Wednesday morning.


  1. I grew up around many Amish folks.........they built our barn and outbuildings and my parents helped them by driving them to other cities for funerals, weddings, etc. When my grandma and my father died......they chartered a bus and a long line of our Amish friends paid their respects. They are an honorable people.....hard working and God-fearing. I love Amish novels and find myself drawn to them anytime I am near a bookstore.......... Thank you for sharing this one with one lucky reader!!

  2. There is so much e can learn from the Amish. I grew up on a farm with a lot of the same Christian and wok values. Good luck.
