Summary

Much has happened in idyllic Ivy Hill in recent months, and while several villagers have found new love and purpose, questions remain - and a few dearly held dreams have yet to be fulfilled.

Jane Bell is torn. Gabriel Locke is back and has made his intentions clear. But Jane is reluctant to give up her inn and destine another man to a childless marriage. Then someone she never expected to see again returns to Ivy Hill....

Mercy Grove has lost her school and is resigned to life as a spinster, especially as the man she admires seems out of reach. Should she uproot herself from Ivy Cottage to become a governess for a former pupil? Her decision will change more lives than her own.

A secretive new dressmaker arrives in the village, but the ladies soon suspect she isn't who she claims to be. Will they oust the imposter, or help rescue her from a dangerous predicament?

In the meantime, everyone expects Miss Brockwell to marry a titled gentleman, even though her heart is drawn to another. While the people of Ivy Hill anticipate one wedding, an unexpected bride may surprise them all.

Don't miss this romantic, stirring conclusion to Tales from Ivy Hill.

WAYYYY too much evangelizing!

The headline goes for all three of the books, though the last one was the heaviest-handed. I understand that religion was particularly central to the lives of people in the time-period, and for the first book, the sub-text was handled pretty well... but with each successive book, the religion-bludgeon played a more central role. The stories themselves and the narration were good, but, I found myself making internal bets about how the author would use a given situation to, once AGAIN, remind me of how VERY MUCH God loves me. I don't mean to sound cynical, and I am, before anyone vilifies me, content with my spirituality and religious affiliation, and am not a "heathen". I prefer the books I read to have an even-handed approach; the reviews I read before getting the books didn't bring it up, so I decided to do so in my review.

Nice Conclusion!

I was quite satisfied with the conclusion of the Ivy Hill series. There were many surprises along the way and a few predictable moments as well.
I loved the wedding breakfast on Ivy Green as well as it's bride. It was nice to see so many happy people.

3-part saga

It’s a little annoying to have to wait for everyone’s happily ever after until the 3rd book, but they’re all good, well-written stories!

Just rather dull.

I did enjoy the first two in this series, but I found this one just a bit boring and totally predictable. It felt as though the author was on a serious deadline and trying to simplify tie up the loose ends as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, it also got a little too preachy for my taste on multiple occasions. Just not worth the time investment to me for the return. Sad though as really enjoyed the first two books.

They get better and better!

Another beautifully written Ivy Green book by Klassen and wonderfully read read by Jasicki. Both are excellent at what they do. I love the story in each book and the series as a whole. They’re well integrated with truly satisfying endings and no loose ends left dangling. I don’t typically wait expectantly for the next in a series but I do with this one!

I enjoyed it...

This is the third book set in Ivy Hill that I have read. I love book series that let you get to know and love the same characters throughout the stories while adding new ones to liven things up. I know some of the reviewers think the books are overly religious (not me) but you have to think about the time period and the fact that it's a small community where you don't see some of your friends and family unless its Sunday at church.
The story is a little predictable but still good. I like the range of young love to older folks finding love again.
The only thing that does bother me is the fact that it seems all the older folks are only in their 50's and the narrator (Elizabeth Jasicki) makes them all sound "old". The narrator is great by the way. I loved her rendition of Jackarby's voice.

excellent as usual!<br />

loved it.. well worth the wait. interwoven with 4-6 subplots all tied together at the end like a masterful tapestry. Like Downton Abbey but you can listen while you work and don't have to sit down to watch it. Well done!!

great read!

This book was written as a representation of England during the early 1800's. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
