In the final installment of the Amish Heirloom series, the Fisher sisters learn the mystery behind their parents’ marriage—and about the sibling who has never been spoken of.

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.

My Review

The Beloved Hope Chest is a sweet Amish novel of unconditional love and overcoming grief. I can't imagine the pain Mattie and Leroy must have gone through. But Amy Clipston weaved Mattie's story so that we--the readers--could journey with her. While this was the last book in the series, I had no trouble reading it without reading the first three books. Leroy was my favorite character because of his willingness to stand by Mattie through any trial. This book highlights some sensitive topics that I've personally dealt with which made it a difficult read. You might want to have some tissues nearby. I'd give this book a four star rating. I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a review. All opinions are my own.

This book is very close to my heart since it is the last in my Amish Heirloom series. I’ve grown to love the Fisher family, and writing Mattie and Leroy’s story was bittersweet. This is a very emotional story, and I poured my heart and soul into it. I hope you enjoy this book since it reveals all of the mysteries that have been placed throughout the series.
