Description

From bestselling authors Mindy Starns Clark and Susan Meissner, The Amish Clockmaker (Book 3 in the Men of Lancaster County series) explores the men of an Amish community in Lancaster County, how their Amish beliefs play out in their unique roles, and the women who change their lives.

Newlywed Matthew Zook is expanding his family's tack and feed store when a surprising property dispute puts the remodel on hold—and raises new questions about the location's mysterious past.

Decades earlier, the same building housed a clock shop run by a young Amish clockmaker named Clayton Raber. Known for his hot temper, Clayton was arrested for the murder of his beloved wife, a crime almost everyone—including his own family members—believed he'd committed, even after charges were dropped. Isolated and feeling condemned by all, Clayton eventually broke from the church, left Lancaster County, and was never heard from again.

Now the only way Matthew can solve the boundary issue and save his family's business is to track down the clockmaker. But does this put Matthew on the trail of a murderer?

A timeless novel of truth, commitment, and the power of enduring love, where secrets of the past give way to hope for the future.

        February 1, 2015

        Matthew Zook and his new bride never imagined that their plans of expanding their store would be derailed by a 50-year-old tragedy. The deed to a portion of their property is still held by octogenarian Clayton Raber, who had been suspected in his wife's death five decades ago. Matthew never believed in Clayton's guilt, and the discovery of an ornately crafted clock containing love letters from Clayton to his deceased wife convinces Matthew of Clayton's innocence. VERDICT The third series entry (after The Amish Groom and The Amish Blacksmith) is an inspiring story of the redemption that can be found in the truth. While Clayton is a quirky and memorable character, Matthew and his wife are a bit less engaging. Still, readers who follow the series as well as fans of Clark (The Amish Midwife) and Meissner (The Shape of Mercy) will want to pick up this title.
