Priscilla jumped the fence close to seven years and has found herself returning to her parents with her son to protect him from his abusive father. Priscilla is not sure her parents’ house is the best place to be but it is the only place available. Will Priscilla abide her father’s wishes to return to the fold and find a husband who will be a father to her son?
As with any Amy Clipston novel you will find yourself unable to put the book down once you open it. Amy writes with heart and you feel that in each character.
Priscilla’s story will break your heart. She teaches us how abuse affects our lives and everything surrounding our lives. She shows us how easy it is for an abused person to go from one abusive relationship to another. It takes strength and courage to break the cycle and how the right love can allow the abused person to open like a beautiful spring flower after a cold, vicious winter.
Grab your tissues and mug of tea and settle in for a long night of reading.

One thought on “A Seat by the Hearth(An Amish Homestead Novel #3) by Amy Clipston”
This sounds like a poignant read, Angela. I wish everyone who suffered an abusive relationship would find love.
That cover is somehow captivating to me. Thanks for sharing. 😊
