About this Book

In the final installment of the Amish Heirloom series, the Fisher sisters learn the mystery behind their parents’ marriage—and about the sibling who has never been spoken of.
Mattie Fisher’s three daughters know that she’s been keeping a secret from them. With each item pulled from the beloved family hope chest, they’ve discovered a new clue about their mother’s past.
But there’s a reason Mattie has been keeping her history hidden, and she’s not sure she’s ready to reopen old wounds. Will dredging up the past change the way her children view her? Or her marriage to their father? And can she handle the pain of revisiting the memories that preceded the last few happy decades?
Mattie’s story is one of grief and learning to love again. But like the best things preserved in a hope chest, it's a story of love and redemption born out of heartache—and it's past time to share it.


I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Amy Clipston said we would learn a lot in The Beloved Hope Chest and she wasn’t joking! In a tender and engaging way we hear from Mattie about her relationship with Leroy.

I loved the setting of this book and the way the story comes together. There is an intimate setting as pieces from the other books in this series are brought up. I was captivated by the storyline. I felt the emotions as Mattie shared about her marriage to Leroy and their past.

Amy never ceases to amaze me as she continually draws me into her stories and makes me feel like I’m there with the characters. In this book, I felt like I was standing in the room observing the conversation that was happening, which is exactly where I wanted to be.

The setting was very intimate and that made this story memorable for me. I’m sad to see this series end, but Amy did a great job tying up the loose ends in a very captivating and unique way.
