The three books from The Apple Ridge series are all put together to make a three-in-one collection. Since each book is also a stand alone I'm going to only review the aspects of them being together and will refer you to my individual reviews since I've previously reviewed the first two and will write a separate review for the third one.
I enjoyed having all three of these books together. It made it easier for me to speed through the books and gave me a better sense of the community. Reading each book separately might leave time in between for me to forget some of the details. Woodsmall is about the only Amish fiction author I will read. Her down to earth characters and intriguing sense of style make this genre, that I typically don't enjoy, an enjoyable read. She always keeps me coming back for more. It was nice to read the new book in the series and to refresh my memory with the previous two books.
