The Devoted - A Book Review

The Devoted is the third book in The Bishop's Family series and I would have to say that this has been the best out of the three.  So many of the characters have been featured in all three books and that has made it very easy to connect and get to know them.  This book seems to focus more on the Bishop than the other books and I really enjoyed getting to know him.  He is a great man of God who loves the people.  So many of the Amish books I have read seem to paint the Bishop in an Amish community as a hard and unloving person, but not in this book.

I love how the whole series has been rich in love and faith.  I would definitely recommend reading the series in order.  You could read this novel by itself, but I think it would be much more enjoyable if you read from the beginning.  You connect so much more with the characters!

The Amish life is all she's ever known, but will it satisfy her soul?

Restless and adventurous, Ruthie Stoltzfus is right on the cusp of leaving her Amish home.  Secretly, she's earned her GED, saved her money, but she can't quite set her journey into motion.  Just as everything falls into place, along comes Patrick Kelley.

Patrick is a young man on a journey of his own.  He's come to Stoney Ridge to convert to the Amish and has given himself thirty days to learn the language, drive a buggy, and adapt to "everything Plain."  Time is of the essence and every moment is to be cherished, especially the hours he spends with Ruthie, his Amish Tutor.

Ruthie's next door neighbor and cunning ex-boyfriend, Luke Schrock is drawn to trouble like a moth to a flame.  rebellious, headstrong, defiant Luke will do anything to win Ruthie back - and Patrick Kelly is in his way.

Pick up this series and travel to Stony Ridge for a story of dreams deferred and the promise of hopes fulfilled.

***Thank you to Revell for providing me a copy of this book for exchange of my honest review.
