A Simple Prayer by Amy Clipston Book Review

As being part of Amy Clipston’s Bakery Bunch, I received an ARC of A Simple Prayer, the fourth and final book in the Hearts of the Lancaster Grand Hotel series.  I am really sad to see this series come to an end.  You can read this book as a stand alone novel, but I really recommend reading the entire series.  This will allow you to familiarize and fall in love with all of the characters carried over from book to book.

In A Simple Prayer, we meet Linda Zook, an Amish woman raised by her not-very-nice uncle after being orphaned at 4 years old after a buggy accident, and Aaron Ebersol who left the Amish community to escape the restrictions of his father and community after a night of fun turned into something ugly.

This book portrays forgiveness amongst several different families and how far our strength in love and faith can carry us.  One portraying of forgiveness is both Linda and Aaron need to forgive family members for wrongs that have been done to them.  Easier said than done!

One of my favorite things about this book is being transformed back to Hannah’s Bed & Breakfast and seeing how the lives of the characters I have grown to love in this series develop.

Amy’s writing makes you feel like you are right there in the pages of the book, not on the outside looking in.

You will walk away after reading this book realizing just how important forgiving others and also yourself are.

A Simple Prayer is available starting on May 5, 2015.  You can pre-order your copy at Amazon and other retailers.  Here is a link for Amazon to make ordering easier for you.


Hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I did.
