The Tempted Soul (Amish Quilt Book #3)


Title:  The Tempted Soul (Amish Quilt Book #3)

Author: Adina Senft

Pages: 320

Year: 2013

Publisher: FaithWords

My rating 5 out of 5 stars.

What an exciting conclusion to the tale covering three friends lives Emma, Amelia and Carrie.  Each woman has had her challenges in life and trying to believe God will bring to them the desires of their hearts.  In the final installment we learn how Carrie who has been unable to have a family with her husband may have to learn how to live without having children while watching the dreams of others come true.

Melvin is an unusual husband in that he is tender, loving and affectionate with his wife, but he doesn’t understand the emptiness and pain bareness brings.  Carrie loves Melvin and leaves her desires time and again with God even when she occasionally tries to find ways to bring about her desire for a baby.  Carrie lays her heart at the feet of God and continues to live within the bounds of the community.

Amelia, Emma and Carrie have been friends since school and each week they gather to quilt and talk. I love how they develop true friendship by speaking words of correction when needed, give each other prayer support and love each other through thick and thin.  I appreciate the fact too that the author doesn’t try to lift the Amish up as perfect or without fault, there are real people.

While the stories are fictional it is easy tog et lost in the pages and have one’s heart captivated by the women in the books.  Each have blessings and trials to face while going through different seasons of life.  I think many would enjoy sitting down and reading without having to filter out anything disliked, as these are clean fictional reads written for a wide audience.

Please enjoy the Quilt Series books A wounded Heart, The Hidden Life and The Tempted Soul, I did and can’t wait to see what will flow from the pen of the author sson!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
