A Place of Peace is the third book in Amy Clipston's Kauffman Amish Bakery Series, and I hope it's not the last. It was fun to re-visit characters from the other stories and meet some new ones as well. (And there are surely more stories to be written about those characters.)
Miriam Lapp left her Amish community four years earlier and returns home when she learns of her mother's death. Her visit home -- which she hopes will be an opportunity to mend some relationships -- just seems to create more hurt and confusion for Miriam and some of her friends and family. She returns to her "English" way of life in Indiana but is torn more than ever about where she really belongs. When she is called back home again for another family emergency, she learns more about the power of forgiveness and how important it is to untangle lies, separate out the truth, and make important decisions -- no matter how difficult. Forgiveness and reconciliation shine through as important themes in this story.
As in the earlier books in the series, Amy shares several Amish recipes. I can personally recommend the Apple Butter Pie on page 201!
On a personal note, I found it fun that the main character was Miriam Lapp from Gordonville, PA. When my husband and I visited Lancaster County, we stayed in a guest house in Gordonville, PA, run by a dear Amish lady named Miriam Lapp! No connection between character and real-life person (I contacted Amy Clipston to ask about it), but I enjoyed remembering my time with Miriam while I read this story.
