    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 ...

    What is it about a romantic period piece that pleases me, in spite of the predictable, tied-in-a-bow ending? I don't know. But I like this author and her Christian characters who find love in 19th century England. ...

    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 ...

    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...

    '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...

    The Bride of Ivy Green is the third book in the Tales From Ivy Hill series written by award-winning author, Julie Klassen. I would strongly recommend reading the first two books in this series before reading the third as The Bride of Ivy Green is a continuation of the story told in boo...

    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 ...

    At last, all the heroines of Ivy Hill finally attain their dreams, whether having old dreams rebuilt or new ones developed (sometimes in ways I didn't expect). In the first two books it felt like more was at stake, but this one provides the satisfying conclusion to the series that I've...

    Julie Klassen concludes her trilogy set in the fictional town of Ivy Hill, which was based on a real English village in Wiltshire in 1820-21. There are surprises for some main characters, not all happy, and a pleasant look at how life has unfolded for others. New characters were introd...

    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 ...

    What a satisfying concluding to the Tales from Ivy Hill series by Klassen. It was so fun to return to Ivy Hill and reconnect with some of my favorite characters of all time. I was slightly concerened that they might grow dull during a third story of their lives, but Klassen deftly w...
