The final book in Amy Clipston’s acclaimed Amish Heirloom series—and both a Publishers Weekly and ECPA bestseller!

Clipston has woven hints of Mattie and Leroy’s history throughout the first three books in this series, leaving her best novel yet to conclude this family’s story of loss, love and hope.” —RT Book Reviews, 4½ stars, TOP PICK!

When Mattie packed her hope chest, she put away the heartache of her past. But as her daughters begin to unpack it, she discovers a healing more powerful than she ever hoped for.

Mattie Fisher’s three daughters know that she’s been keeping a secret from them. With each item pulled from the beloved family hope chest, they’ve discovered a new clue about their mother’s past.

But there’s a reason Mattie has been keeping her history hidden, and she’s not sure she’s ready to reopen old wounds. Will dredging up the past change the way her children view her? Or her marriage to their father? And can she handle the pain of revisiting the memories that preceded the last few happy decades?

Mattie’s story is one of grief and learning to love again. But like the best things preserved in a hope chest, it's a story of love and redemption born out of heartache—and it's past time to share it.

“Clipston has written another heartwarming romance, with lifelike characters and a delightfully detailed setting.” —Booklist

“A story of loss and healing, the latest in award winning author Clipston’s Amish Heirloom series creatively balances love, restoration, and second chances with tackling tough issues.” —CBA Market

“Clipston provides a deep, nuanced portrait of . . . grief and the challenges of trying to move forward in life while buried under pain, fear, anger, and confusion.” —Publishers Weekly

Amy Clipston has always been a favorite of mine. Her books are always tenderly written, drawing me to the heart of each story. The characters she creates always become like family, leaving me with all their emotions. The Beloved Hope Chest was no exception! 

The Beloved Hope Chest is the final Amish Heirloom book, making it an even more emotional book for me. I’m not ready to say goodbye yet! But, that said, this conclusion was a beautiful one. The story that captivated me instantly isn’t one I’ll soon forget. 

Mattie, Leroy, and all the sweet loving characters in this book, stole my heart for good. They are simple, as Amish are, yet extremely complex. The emotions they share jump off the pages, cocooning the reader in warmth and grace, and sometimes sorrow. I loved that! 

This book is in my top 10 reads of 2017. Amy has taken a story of grief and heartache and turned it into a story filled with longing, hope, faith and understanding. It is the 4th and final book in the series, and while I recommend readers to read all four books (they are all great!), it is easy to read this as a stand alone. You just might miss out on a bit of the characters back stories. I highly recommend this book with the highest of 5 stars!

Disclaimer: I received this eBook from the publisher, Zondervan, for free to read and review through the blogger review program at Net Galley. I was not required to give a favorable review only an honest review, nor was I compensated for my review. All thoughts and comments in this review are my own.

About the Book:

Mattie Fisher decides to tell her daughters about the secrets she has been keeping from them all these years, but with each article she takes from her hope chest she wonders if she is ready to deal with the pain of opening those old wounds and if her daughters will think less of her. Her hope is that she can show her children that out of painful memories and sorrow one can find love and redemption.

My Thoughts:
Amy Clipston is one of my favorite Amish writers. I have read all four of these books and really hate for the series to end.

Mattie Fisher’s story will steal your heart. As she tells her daughters her memories you will find yourself reaching for the tissues, so keep them handy. This book is filled with heartache, sorrow, pain, yet it will show that love and forgiveness will triumph in victory. You will not want to put this book down until you have read the last page…so clear your afternoon. If you are a fan of Amish stories this series is one you will not want to miss.
