Here's my review:
The last book of the Big Sky Novel's, Beyond Hope's Valley by Tricia Goyer, brings a surprising end about holding true to beliefs, but embracing God's best.  Marianna travels back to Indiana with her fiance' Aaron to help her brother's soon to be wife deliver her baby.  Little does she know the secrets that are soon to be revealed.  Marianna tries to fit back into her community after being gone for a year to Montana.  She can't help but feel that the changes she's made in her spiritual life make her seem different and unwanted.  Meanwhile, her English friend, Ben from Montana, writes an amazing song about her and it ends up being played on the radio.  Marianna overhears that song one day in a store and wonders why her heart still skips a beat when she thinks about Ben even though she is planning to marry her Amish sweetheart Aaron.  Marianna dutifully helps her brother and sister in law, but becomes confused when a secret is revealed about the coming baby.  Can Marianna truly trust God to give her His best and lead her down the right path to life and love?

I am so glad this series had an ending that was pleasing to me.  I really enjoyed each of these novels and I learned so much about really trusting God for future plans.  This would make a great movie!  This was unlike any other Amish novel I have ever read.  It not only showed Amish traditions, but how Amish also learn to live with "outsiders" in a friendly way.  Three cheers for Tricia!

Check out my reviews for her first two books: Beside Still Waters and Along Wooded Paths.
