My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book started out slow for me, maybe it had to do with the fact that I forgot who Matthew and Amanda were at first ,I’m not sure, But once I got passed the slowness I really enjoyed it.
it was like 2 stories in one, we start out with Mathew and Amanda, then for the middle of the book we go back 60 years to see how things played out with Clayton(the clockmaker who lived there before matthews grandparents bought the homestead)
I do wish there was more to the ending though..
Here’s the synopsis:
From bestselling authors Mindy Starns Clark and Susan Meissner, The Amish Clockmaker (Book 3 in the Men of Lancaster County series) explores the men of an Amish community in Lancaster County, how their Amish beliefs play out in their unique roles, and the women who change their lives.
Newlywed Matthew Zook is expanding his family’s tack and feed store when a surprising property dispute puts the remodel on hold–and raises new questions about the location’s mysterious past.
Decades earlier, the same building housed a clock shop run by a young Amish clockmaker named Clayton Raber. Known for his hot temper, Clayton was arrested for the murder of his beloved wife, a crime almost everyone–including his own family members–believed he’d committed, even after charges were dropped. Isolated and feeling condemned by all, Clayton eventually broke from the church, left Lancaster County, and was never heard from again.
Now the only way Matthew can solve the boundary issue and save his family’s business is to track down the clockmaker. But does this put Matthew on the trail of a murderer?
A timeless novel of truth, commitment, and the power of enduring love, where secrets of the past give way to hope for the future.
I received this book free from netgalley in exchange for my honest review
