Genre: Amish Fiction
After a devastating loss, Cindy Riehl is still searching for peace. Will she find it in the community she calls home—or will love send her down a new path?
Over the last few years, Cindy Riehl—the youngest of the Riehl children—has watched her siblings find love and happiness in Lancaster County. But as her family has settled down and grown, Cindy has continued to grieve her mother, whose death left an enormous hole in her heart. Since that haunting day, Cindy has struggled to find peace and wonders if the community is the place for her—and if her faith in God will ever feel the same as it once did.
When a handsome and kind Englisher named Drew crosses Cindy’s path one surprising day, the two of them become fast and easy friends. Drew dreams of starting a family after some losses of his own, and before long, he and Cindy discover that their feelings for each other are romantic. As they spend more time together—often in secret—Cindy is drawn further and further away from the Amish community and the family she loves. In time, she is faced with a difficult choice that threatens to upend her world.
Will Cindy find contentment and love, and will she ever find restored comfort in God and her beloved community? In this final installment of the Amish Homestead series, we return to the charming town of Bird-in-Hand for a story of healing, family, and God’s perfect provision.

A WELCOME AT OUR DOOR is the fourth and final book In the Amish Homestead series. We finally get Cindy Riehl’s story! To be honest, I fell in love with the cover the minute I saw it. I knew I would read it anyway, because It is set in Lancaster County, but the cover really pulled me in. I loved everything about this beautiful story and I’m excited to read more by Amy Clipston. I’ve read many of her books but not all of them. She has a way of grabbing her readers and she never lets us go. Cindy has been having a very hard time dealing with life since her mother passed away tragically. She fell down the basement stairs and Cindy has been having survivors guilt ever since. She feels like she doesn’t fit in in her family anymore, she’s feeling lost and can’t understand how everyone else in her family has moved on and she just can’t.
A WELCOME AT OUR DOOR is filled with twists and turns as well as faith, family, love, hope, and had me staying up way too late one night to finish! I had to know where Amy Clipston was taking us and what would happen to Cindy and if she would ever find peace. Poor Cindy will pull at your heart strings and never let them go. When the family cow, Cucumber, gets loose, Cindy’s life heads in a new direction. This is how she meets an Englischer named Drew. She becomes friends with him rather quickly and they share a connection that neither of them can deny. Her father is very much against this friendship because he feels Cindy is getting too close to Drew and might be falling in love with him. She continues to see him secretly and both know what they are doing is wrong. There is so much heart in Amy’s writing that I was left with a huge smile on my face and my heart, very happy. All of the characters are very interesting and believable, so much so that I felt as if I’ve known them for a long time.
Make yourself a yummy hot drink, get your favorite blanket and get on the couch. A WELCOME AT OUR DOOR is an awesome way to spend the afternoon or evening. Once you start, you won’t be able to put it down and will find yourself cheering for Cindy and her family. I really wanted to reach in to this story and give Cindy a hug over and over again. She is so torn between staying in her faith and joining the church or leaving it all behind and joining Drew in the Englisch world. Amy Clipston will pull you in from the very first page and never let you go! I’m sad that the Amish Homestead series is finished but Amy wrapped it up perfectly and I’m excited to read her next series!
