Though Mountains Fall by Dale Cramer

"Though Mountains  Fall " by Dale Cramer gets 5 stars from me. This book is the last in the series “The Daughters of Caleb Bender.  This is a series that I could read time and time again even knowing how it well end. It is the fourth year that the Bender family has lived in Paradise Valley and things are not improving, The bandits have all been killed by the Mexican government. Caleb Bender says  the other differences between the bandits and the soldiers are the uniforms. The soldiers took the Amish farmers horses and crops and whatever they want and tell the farmers to think of it as taxes. The new government is against God and take the church building away from the priests and use it for their headquarters. While all this is going on Miriam marrieds Domingo and is ban for marrying outside the church. A new bishops comes to Paradise Valley to see if he wants to move there with his family. The soldiers attack and beat up two teenagers and the captain of the soldiers has them shot while the bishop and Caleb watch and then the Amish families decided it is time to go back to Ohio. Domingo goes to fight against the soldiers. Caleb is bitter and and then somethings tragic happens in Oho and then Caleb makes another trip back to Mexico. The ending was a great surprise! I am really sad to not be able to hear more about the Bender family. This book helps the reader realized that love is the greatest thing you can give a person.
