It wasn’t easy to move back to the Old Order Mennonite community from which quiet, responsible Suzanne Zimmerman was shamefully sent away as a pregnant teen. Returning twenty years later to take care of her mother, Suzanne and Alexa—the daughter she raised as her own—have spent months rebuilding relationships with her family. 

Now with the upcoming wedding of their biological daughter, Suzanne and Paul find themselves drawn to one another once again—but with new challenges to face. They have been single parents with painful pasts. Can Paul and Suzanne find the strength to rebuild the loving relationship that was torn apart by their teen pregnancy so long ago? 

Suzanne must also let go of Alexa as she heads back to Indianapolis to visit friends--and as her chance to find her birth parents. Leaving the bed-and-breakfast in Suzanne’s apprehensive hands, Alexa embarks on a journey that will certainly change her life completely. Can mother and daughter trust God to restore all things in His timing?

My take on this book:
I have enjoyed reading this entire series and looked forward to seeing how Kim Vogel Sawyer would wrap things up with this third, and final installment of The Zimmerman Restoration series. With this book we get to reconnect with old characters while we also meet a few new ones. I must admit I am glad that the author provided a bit of refresher information so that I could reconnect with the characters and their stories. It has been interesting to see how Suzanne sort of comes full circle in this trilogy. The author tackles several topics such and one is being an unwed mother, Suzanne was a pregnant teen sent away twenty years earlier, now she has come home to take care of her mother.  Paul Aldrich is the father of the baby Suzanne had, now that she is back the old feelings start to resurface. What does God ultimately have in store for this couple.This is a story about healing families and healing hearts. The author wraps up all of the loose ends, and provided an ending that was quite satisfying. As part of a trilogy I highly recommend reading these books in order to fully understand the characters. Overall a great series that I hate to see end.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
