I finally got the final installment of the Big Sky Trilogy, Beyond Hope’s Valley by Tricia Goyer a few weeks ago and it was driving me nuts that I didn’t have time to read it right away.  Argh!!   I hate that!

At the end of the last book, Marianna had to decide whether she was going back to Indiana with her former beau, Aaron.    In this book, she does.   And it’s not at all how she wished it would go.   She has troubles being in a catty, gossippy community where they talk the talk but don’t seem to walk the walk.   Not like the liberal Montana community where kindness and walking with God trumps the so-called rules.   And these troubles cause problems with her to-be-husband, Aaron, who would prefer that she be the quiet, good respectable girl of his youth.  Marianna still longs for Ben and Aaron has a few secrets of his own to deal with.    I’m not going to say anymore because I don’t want to be a spoiler, but wow was it a good read!

I really liked the characters in this book.   Tricia did a great job of portraying the conflict of the characters, especially Aaron and Marianna’s mother.   While side characters, they really had issues of their own that helped Marianna with hers.   She did a great job of tying up loose ends of the main characters but left enough unsaid that I’m wondering about some others — another series perhaps?

This is a fabulous summer read and the last novel doesn’t disappoint.   I would recommend the series to anyone.   And really, I would start with the first one because it’s a fabulous series but the first two are just a {smidge} better.
