The Bond of Love, the third book in the Finley's Tale series, completes Finley Newcastle's journal of experiences involving church people and church mice. Highlighted are the state-sponsored Underground Railroad tours, the eye-opening discovery by the mice that Historic St. Peter's is a "Lutheran" church, a sheep-stealing debacle, and umpteen other developments. At last, Finley says farewell to his journaling days, turning his attention to another goal on his bucket list.
Years later, his journal is rediscovered by a new generation of church mice who are riveted to learn of St. Pete's past. Finley Newcastle becomes a hero in the mouse world, the only mouse who has picked up a pen and written a journal about the most important place on earth: Historic St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Oswald County.
