His Love Endures Forever by Beth Wiseman
An unplanned pregnancy. An absent father. Can love really endure all things?
Danielle Kent is anything but Amish. But as destiny would have it, she has fallen in love with an Amish man.
Now she’s 18, pregnant, and hopeful that the child’s Amish father—Matthew Lapp—will do the right thing and marry her. She knows Matthew plans to leave his Colorado settlement for a life in the Englisch world. But that plan never included a baby.
When Matthew walks away from her and their unborn child, she has nowhere to turn. Her unlikely friendship with Levi offers some comfort—yet they have so little in common. This wasn’t the plan she had for her life, and she has never felt so alone. She doesn’t want to be pregnant. Doesn’t want to be Amish. Doesn’t want to trust God.
God has plans beyond what her mind can imagine . . . loving plans to show a lost young woman that His love never fails but endures forever.
What a fantastic conclusions to a great series. I could not wait to read this book, partially because the first two were great and partially because Danielle and Martha are my favorite characters. I couldn't wait to hear Danielle's story and have more encounters with Martha. I got so wrapped up in this story and found myself reading the book in less than a day. It really pulled me from the beginning.
Beth Wiseman does an amazing job at weaving in truth that God's love does endure forever. This is something that many of need to learn, both those that grow up in the faith and those that don't. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Amish fiction, a good story and more. I will also say this is not your typical Amish fiction, or at least very different from Beverly Lewis's style. It is not so much about the rules, but the people and God's love. While I think you could read this book without reading the first two, there would be so much you would be missing out. So I highly encourage anyone that has interest in this book to read the whole series, you won't be sorry.
