Read A Life of Joy (Kauffman Amish Bakery, #4) Online Free - Take a trip to Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, where you’ll meet the women of the Kauffman Amish Bakery in Lancaster County. As each woman’s story unfolds, you will share in her heartaches, trials, joys, dreams … and secrets. You’ll discover how the simplicity of the Amish lifestyle can clash with the “English” way of life—and the decisions and consequences that follow. Most importantly, you will be encouraged by the hope and faith of these women, and the importance they place on their families. In A Life of Joy, the fourth installment in the series, eighteen-year-old Lindsay Bedford has reached a crossroads. Should she stay in the small Amish community she's known and loved for four years or return to the English life in her hometown in Virginia where her older sister is a college student? An extended visit to Virginia might just tip the scales as Lindsay reconnects with friends, joins a new church, works on her GED, and is pressured by her sister to stay and "make something of herself." Will Lindsay leave her aunt Rebecca and become English or settle in Bird-in-Hand and join the Amish church? Legions of Clipston fans want to know. Full of well-researched Amish culture, Clipston's book is true to form, delivering the best of the Amish fiction genre wrapped around a compelling story, with characters who will touch the hearts of loyal fans and new readers alike.

This book, while enjoyable, feels like one big story that was split into two smaller ones. The focus is on Lindsay mostly, but to a lesser extent her friends Lydia Ann and Katie feature as well. It talks about the crossroads Lindsay finds herself at and how each of her friends also handle the upc...

It is really interesting how interwoven all the lives of the characters are. I enjoyed seeing Lindsay from the first book again, several years later.
Unlike the majority of Amy Clipston's books, this one is about Lindsay deciding whether or not to embrace the Amish life, and much of it takes plac...

I just love this series. I haven't read one yet that didn't make me both laugh and cry. Clipston does a wonderful job of making you feel the emotions of the characters as you read, so you're not just reading; you feel involved in the story, like you're there.
Lindsay is 18 now. Four years ago, she...

Normally, I like reading books about the Amish. We don't have anyone/any community like that in Singapore, and I think it's interesting to read about my brothers and sisters in Christ. A Life of Joy was supposed to be like this - a sweet young girl choosing if she wants to be Amish. Instead, I fo...
