There Is a Balm in Gilead

I have read the books in this series a long time ago, so it took me a few pages to catch up to Sarah and her friends in Pennsylvania. Adina Senft has brought Sarah and Henry full circle in Balm of Gilead. Joe and Simon come home from Colorado and begin making their lives in the community. Joe has Priscilla waiting for him, but Simon is a bit at loose ends. Caleb has started working for a contractor and still wants to work for Henry in his spare time. Sarah is still taking lessons from Ruth on being a doktorfrau with herbal remedies. Henry and Ginny are engaged to be married. Everything seems to be going so well, but flies are infesting the ointment.

Adina ties up most of the loose ends in this final book in the Healing Grace series, and she does it with such a deft hand that makes the book hard to put down. I think every reader of Amish fiction wants Sarah as a friend, she a straight-shooter who doesn't hold back with her opinions, she tells the truth even when it hurts, but she's always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need especially with her herbal remedies.

I loved this book, staying up way too late to read it, simply because I got so involved in the story. It's definitely a Five Star, Two Thumbs Up, and a salve for your soul type book.

My thanks to FaithWords for allowing me to read and review this book.
