The Forgotten Recipe

Book 1, An Amish Heirloom Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The first book in Amy Clipston’s beloved Amish Heirloom series—and an ECPA bestseller!

“Amish fiction fans will enjoy this story—and want a taste of Veronica’s raspberry pie!” —Publishers Weekly

After losing her fiancé in a tragic accident, Veronica Fisher finds solace in the old recipes stored in her mother’s hope chest—and in a special visitor who comes to her bake stand to purchase her old-fashioned raspberry pies.

Veronica Fisher knows how lucky she is to be marrying her best friend. Seth Lapp is kind, hardworking, and handsome—but most importantly, he loves Veronica.

When an accident on the job steals Seth away from her, a heartbroken Veronica is certain she will never love—or be loved—again. Yet when she discovers a batch of forgotten recipes and opens a bake stand to sell her Mammi’s raspberry pies, Veronica picks up a regular customer who gives her heart pause.

Jason Huyard was with Seth when he lost his life—a memory that haunts him still. So when he seeks out the grieving fiancée to convey his condolences, the last thing he expects—or wants—is to fall in love. Nonetheless, Jason soon finds himself visiting Veronica’s bake stand every week . . . and it’s for more than the raspberry pies.

Now, as Veronica’s heart thaws, Jason can’t bring himself to tell her he was there when Seth died. Can he ever reveal where he was on the day her life derailed? Or will his secret rob them of the second chance at love they both want?

“Clipston delivers another enchanting series starter with a tasty premise, family secrets, and sweet-as-pie romance, offering assurance that true love can happen more than once and second chances are worth fighting for.” —RT Book Reviews, 4½ stars, TOP PICK!

“In the first book in her Amish Heirloom series, Clipston takes readers on a roller-coaster ride through grief, guilt, and anxiety.” —Booklist

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 12, 2015 – Clipston, author of the popular Kauffman Amish Bakery series, will no doubt draw fans to the first in her Amish Heirloom series. The "heirloom" is a raspberry-pie recipe found in an attic trunk by Veronica Fisher as she mourns the death of her fianc , Seth. Veronica bakes pies to help salve her broken heart and finds one steady customer, Jason Huyard, who begins to weave his way into that shattered heart. But Jason knows more about Seth's death than he lets on, a secret that threatens his growing relationship with Veronica. Will he tell her the truth and risk losing her? Clipston is well versed in Amish culture and does a good job creating the world of Lancaster County, Penn. The only complaint readers may have is the repeated descriptions of the conflict that threatens Jason and Veronica. Despite the constant reminders, Amish fiction fans will enjoy this story and want a taste of Veronica's raspberry pie!

A delight to read!

The Forgotten Recipe is the latest book by Amy Clipston. It is an Amish Heirloom Novel. Veronica Fisher is devastated over the loss of her fiancé, Seth Lapp. He died in an accident at work. She has been unable to move forward nor is she grieving properly. Veronica has kept herself busy cleaning. She sets out to clean the families’ attic and discovers a beautiful hope chest. Inside the trunk she finds a recipe for her grandmother’s raspberry pie recipe. Veronica quits cleaning the attic to go off and try the recipe. It turns out to be a success and quite popular with locals and tourists.

Jason Huyard works at the Lancaster Shed Company (owned by his father and uncle). Seth Lapp was his best friend and co-worker. Jason was there when Seth feel to his death. He is having a hard time dealing with the loss of his friend. He has been thinking quite a bit about Veronica. Seth talked about her all the time and Jason feels like he knows her. His mother sends him to buy a raspberry pie and discovers Veronica. Jason does not tell her that he knew Seth (big mistake). Slowly Jason and Veronica spend time together and get to know each other. Veronica is hesitant at first because she had made a promise to love only Seth when he proposed. Veronica and Jason have something special. But can Jason’s secret ruin their relationship? Will Veronica ever be able to trust again?

The Forgotten Recipe is a lovely novel. It is well written and heartwarming. It is about love, soul mates, forgiveness and trust (and a good pie recipe). It is the type of book that you want to read on a cold winter evening in front of a fireplace. I give The Forgotten Recipe 4.5 out of 5 stars. You cannot go wrong with one of Amy Clipston’s novels. They are always enjoyable to read and they draw the reader into the story. The story is left with a cliffhanger (or a secret not revealed). We now have to wait for the next book. That is the only thing I found frustrating. I wish everything had been wrapped up in this book (though I do understand why the author did it).

I received a complimentary copy of The Forgotten Recipe from NetGalley (and the publisher) in exchange for an honest review.

The Forgotten Recipe

I enjoyed reading this book.

Good but could be better

In my opinion this book was good but could be better. The story line was good but predictable. This wasn’t one of those books I couldn’t put down so this was a slow page-turner for me. Also, some strings are left hanging with secondary characters and if you want to get the answers you have to buy other books in the series.
I read a lot and so what is predictable or a slow page-turner to me may not be for others so, if you can download this book for free, I’d go for it!
