    First sentence: Mercy Grove could no longer put off the painful task. If you enjoyed The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill and The Ladies of Ivy Cottage, you are definitely going to read the third book in the series, The Bride of ivy Green. The only complaint I have is that I think it should ha...

    This was a very satisfying conclusion to the "Tales from Ivy Hill" series. I was happy to dive back into the lives of the characters. The book ended up just as I hoped it would. There is not one but two brides in this story. Jane and Mercy finally have their lives come together and ...

    This was a very fitting end to the Tales from Ivy Hill. I really enjoyed how we got to see what happened next for Jane, Rachel, and Mercy. Though, there were some surprising new additions to Ivy Hill as well. At one point, it seemed as if there were going to be far too many loose ends ...

    This conclusion to the Tales from Ivy Hill once again returns us to the English town of Ivy HIll and the ladies of this town. Jane and Rachel are happily married. Mercy and Aunt Matty are stuck living with Mercy's brother and his new bride who isn't fond of the situation at all. And Ma...

    This entire series moved at a very gentle pace, sometimes a little too gentle. But at the same time, each book was filled with many varied story threads, all woven together seamlessly. There's drama, intrigue, and excitement, but it's always very genteel and elegant, just like the era ...

    I have loved every book in this series - they do have a slower pace in general, but I have loved following the lives of the people of Ivy Hill, seeing how their stories intertwine and how the people new to town slowly make their place and become accepted by the people. I wouldn't say i...

    Too slow at time, picked up in the middle, then too much detail and too sentimental at the end. A little disappointed because I had been looking forward to this book for a year. Klassen's books don't usually drag so much. ...

    I'm really not much of a series reader, but I love Julie Klassen's writing style. I have loved every minute I have spent in Ivy Hill. The characters and setting are charming. This series is the ultimate comfort reading for me. This entry wrapped everything up nicely. I would love to sp...

    This is a beautiful, satisfying conclusion to the Ivy Hill series, one that I both dreaded ending yet couldn't read fast enough to see what happened to my friends. While I am very attached to Jane and loved seeing her story continue here, I was thrilled to see Mercy, who I consider to ...

    I maybe should have reread the first two books before embarking on this one; I couldn't remember the backstory for most of the characters. I am going to stop eagerly anticipating Klassen's novels. The most recent ones are fine, enjoyable even, but nothing compared to the deep histor...

    The third and final installment in the Tales From Ivy Hill bring things to a head for Mercy, Jane, and other residents of Ivy Hill Village. I've been with this story since the beginning and was eager to see how things wrapped up for several favorite characters. So much was going on tha...

    I am a frazzled mess of euphoric bliss and abject misery because, while this was a spectacular conclusion to the Tales of Ivy Hill series, it is also the last book! Gulp. Ever. Like in never getting to armchair travel there again. And though this delectable, multi-romanced story charme...

    This was a charming, sweet and chaste conclusion to the 3 volume "Tales From Ivy Hill" series. Author Julie Klassen has tied each of the primary characters' stories up with a pretty bow. It continues with the lives of three close friends - Mercy, Jane and Rachel. Rachel had married the...

    'Mercy reminded herself that God did not promise ease and happiness in this life. But He did promise peace and joy, and she was determined to hold on to both, somehow.' I have sincerely looked forward to Julie Klassen's final of her Tales from Ivy Hill series. I certainly have thoro...

    First off, I would highly recommend reading or rereading the previous two books in the set before starting this one. I barely remembered who any of these people were and where we left off. And that made for confusion and missed connections for a bit. In the first book, I loved that ...

    It was lovely to visit Ivy Hill again. The second book of the series left relationships unresolved and I really wanted an HEA for more than one character in the series conclusion. While I adore Jane, it was Mercy's story line that pulled me in the most in this third novel. Her cold ...

    This is book three in Tales of Ivy Hill and you should read them in order so you are familiar with the characters and events. In this conclusion to my ladies of Ivy Hill I was surprised by some of the twists that didn?t turn out as expected but were done in Klassen style. I loved Jos...

    So this one took me awhile to get back into. I?d forgotten the characters and I was quite lost. I felt like I was drawn to Mercy the most and hated everything that was happening to her. And poor Jane....Would she ever have a child... As the story progressed there was a lot of twis...

    I loved this third book in the Ivy Hill series. Although I suspect this may be the final book in the series, I sincerely hope that Julie Klassen will revisit Ivy Hill in the future. She has created a wonderful cast of characters that I would be happy to see again and again. I was gl...

    This is a series I would recommend to read in order, and also close together, due to certain aspects continuing from one book to the other and all the various characters involved. This was a beautiful and heartwarming conclusion to the series. I really loved that the main focus of t...

    This last entry in the Ivy Hill trilogy was a sweet and gently told finale to the series, wrapping up loose ends in a satisfying manner. My only regret was the introduction of several new characters without really giving them any depth, due to lack of space and time. I would have much ...

    I'm sorry the series has come to an end. What a journey with the women of Ivy Hill through their struggles with society, men, children, occupations, and faith. I feel I have become friends with them through these books. Village life has its pros and cons. Julie Klassen captures it perf...
