Gathering The Threads by Cindy Woodsmall is a delightful Amish romance with a wonderful, warm, welcoming feel to it. It is the third book in the Amish Of Summer Grove series but can be read as a stand-alone as I hadn’t read the first two books.
The main themes are the search for identity and to belong. “She needed to understand who she was.” Being raised Amish, spending time with the Englisch and then returning to the Amish community certainly creates mind confusion. Some things such as mobile phones which bring freedom are not easily surrendered. However, the Englisch love of money contrasts with the value the Amish put on family. “Spending money was the… answer for a lot of emotional upsets.”
