Review of "Jenny's Choice"

Book Review of Jenny's Choice

By Patrick E. Craig

18054660

In the concluding novel to the Apple Creek Dreams series, Jonathan and Jenny Hershberger are happily settled in Paradise, Pennsylvania on the farm Jenny inherited from her grandfather. But when a tragic accident takes Jonathan's life, Jenny and her young daughter, Rachel, return home to Apple Creek, Ohio to live with her adoptive parents, Reuben and Jerusha Springer.

As Jenny works through her grief and despair, she discovers she has a gift for writing. A handsome young publisher discovers her work and, after the publication of her first book, Jenny is on the verge of worldly success and possible romance.

But when a conflict arises with the elders of her church, Jenny must ask herself how far she's willing to go to pursue her dreams.

A touching story of devotion and triumph over adversity. Book 3 in the Apple Creek Dreams series.
MY REVIEW:
Tissues, tissues, where are my tissues? Jenny's Choice tugged my heartstrings and had me shedding tears of sorrow and joy at different points.   I had already fallen in love with the characters from my reading of books one and two in the Apple Creek Dream series, and it feels like Reuben, Jerusha, Jenny, Rachel, and Jonathan are actually family members to me.   
Jenny and her family have many difficult decisions to make about their life.  Jenny struggles with whether or not she is truly Amish because she was adopted into an Amish family.   Then God leads her to begin writing the story of her family and the Amish leaders are not always so encouraging of her calling.   You will not want to pass up the opportunity to read the conclusion of this third book in Patrick E. Craig's Apple Creek Dream series.   I started it yesterday and read it straight through.  Now where did those tissues go?   Need some 5-Star tissues.  :) 
I received a free pdf copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
