Description

The final book in Amy Clipston’s acclaimed Amish Heirloom series—and both a Publishers Weekly and ECPA bestseller!

Clipston has woven hints of Mattie and Leroy’s history throughout the first three books in this series, leaving her best novel yet to conclude this family’s story of loss, love and hope.” —RT Book Reviews, 4½ stars, TOP PICK!

When Mattie packed her hope chest, she put away the heartache of her past. But as her daughters begin to unpack it, she discovers a healing more powerful than she ever hoped for.

Mattie Fisher’s three daughters know that she’s been keeping a secret from them. With each item pulled from the beloved family hope chest, they’ve discovered a new clue about their mother’s past.

But there’s a reason Mattie has been keeping her history hidden, and she’s not sure she’s ready to reopen old wounds. Will dredging up the past change the way her children view her? Or her marriage to their father? And can she handle the pain of revisiting the memories that preceded the last few happy decades?

Mattie’s story is one of grief and learning to love again. But like the best things preserved in a hope chest, it's a story of love and redemption born out of heartache—and it's past time to share it.

“Clipston has written another heartwarming romance, with lifelike characters and a delightfully detailed setting.” —Booklist

“A story of loss and healing, the latest in award winning author Clipston’s Amish Heirloom series creatively balances love, restoration, and second chances with tackling tough issues.” —CBA Market

“Clipston provides a deep, nuanced portrait of . . . grief and the challenges of trying to move forward in life while buried under pain, fear, anger, and confusion.” —Publishers Weekly

        April 24, 2017
        Bestselling Amish fiction writer Clipston reveals Mattie Fisher’s secrets in the final installment of the Amish Heirloom series (after The Cherished Quilt). After her daughters discover baby clothes, handprints and footprints, and birth and death certificates in her hope chest, Mattie decides that the time has come to share the truth about her past and her marriage. Flash back to 1989, when she’s married to Isaiah Petersheim and three months pregnant with her first child. After Isaiah dies as a hero, Mattie is left alone. Four months later, still grieving, she marries Leroy Fisher, her best friend since childhood. It’s primarily a marriage of convenience, but Leroy has faith that Mattie will learn to love him. When further grief enters their lives, Mattie decides to leave her new husband and retreat to her parents’ home, forcing Leroy to face the difficult choice of whether to continue to pursue her or respect her wishes and allow the woman he loves to walk out of his life. Leroy’s character is almost too perfect, but Clipston provides a deep, nuanced portrait of Mattie’s grief and the challenges of trying to move forward in life while buried under pain, fear, anger, and confusion. An epilogue serves to tie up the series, but the novel is enjoyable as a standalone.
