Gathering Threads - Litfuse Book Review



You have all heard about "Switched at Birth" stories. What if, you switched with a completely different life. Raised with completely different values and beliefs. 

That's what happened in the series by Cindy Woodsmall. Her latest book The Gathering Threads. It's the third book in the Amish of Summer Grove series. 

I was chosen to review the third book; however, one look at the back cover sent me searching for the other two in the series. I found the first on another review site and then paid full price for the second on Amazon kindle - yes they are that good!

The stories are spellbinding. I love how the relationships play out between the characters. The two families that are caught in the middle of the 'switch' mess are so different. The girls are raised so differently but each have their own struggles they are dealing with.

One raised with basically no boundaries. Parents who have been separate all her life. In fact, they were never even married. The other raised by very faithful Amish, who if truth be told always suspected something was wrong. One raised as an only child, the only sibling being the child of her Mother's new husband. The other the twin sister of an Amish boy, and many siblings.

It's definitely a a tale with many threads (pun intended).

My husband teases me about my love of Amish fiction and this one definitely didn't disappoint.


Cindy Woodsmall is an award-winning New York Times and CBA best-selling author who has written 20 works of fiction, including her most recent series, Amish of Summer Grove. Her connection with the Amish community has been widely featured in national media outlets, including ABC’s Nightline. The Wall Street Journal listed Woodsmall as one of the top three most popular authors of Amish fiction.
RT Book Reviews recently presented her with a Career Achievement Award and gave her latest release, Gathering the Threads, a Top Pick review.
Woodsmall and her husband reside near the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains.
