Through the Autumn Air, by Kelly Irvin, is book three in An Every Amish Season. While this is part of a series, this is also a very good stand alone story. In this story we visit Mary Katherine and Ezekiel. Each of them have lost their spouses and are holding on to the love they had with them. They have each raised their families and are now having their children trying to tell them how to live their lives.
This is a very touching story of two people in the autumn of their lives who have loved their spouses so deeply. I enjoyed reading this story as it shows just because we get older, that does not mean we need help making decisions about our lives. I enjoyed the amount of energy Mary Katherine has and how she uses it to help her friends and family. I enjoyed her unspoken honesty about having to help her daughter-in-law and grandchildren. I also liked how Ezekiel make changes when his wife past away that helped him raise and support his family in a way that he was there with them. Being about the same age as the characters, I liked the honesty of the aging process. The aches and pains they felt after being on their feet all day. The joy they felt of being around their families, while enjoying their quiet life after raising their children.
This is a great book, the main focus is the Amish and their way of life. Yet it also brings in the English and their Christian lives as well. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading stories of hard working people who live a simple life.
I received a copy of this book from Zondervan publishing through BookLook Bloggers. This is my honest review.
