The Beloved Hope Chest by Amy Clipston - Review of the fourth book in the Amish Heirloom series

When Mattie packed er 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 teh last few happy decades?

Mattie's story is one of grief and learning to love again. But like the best tings 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.

Oh what a tearjerker Amy has written this time. I had to make myself put it down at times, read LATE into the night so I could finish it today. This has been a very touching series. How many times have we blamed ourselves for things that happened but we know in our hearts we could not do anything different to change the outcome? Our lives are in God's hands, he will test us but he will see us through, if we can just hear him and follow where he leads us.

Thank you to BookLook Bloggers for providing this book for review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
