Working hard to develop a new Amish community outside of Unity, Maine, Rhoda Byler is fully committed to rehabilitating an orchard with business partner Samuel King. But an impulsive decision has created an unexpected strain in her relationship with her beau, Samuel’s brother, Jacob, threatening plans for the orchard.
Amidst mounting tension in matters of the heart and business, Rhoda finds that this fledging settlement feels like the home she has always longed for, and she begins to embrace the God-given, heightened intuition that has always felt like a burden to her. She longs for Jacob to fully be free of his past, so they can work towards the future together. But as Rhoda uses her gift to unpack an old secret with her Englisch neighbors, it is not her beau but an unlikely ally that cheers her on.
With the orchard on shaky ground and Jacob’s plans in question, Rhoda is determined to see things through to harvest. But can she trust her insight to direct her path in matters of the heart?

This book had everything you want in a good book. So many characters and stories within the story. Kept me guessing till the very end how it was going to come out. Fantastic!!!!
I love books!
This is the third book in this series set in Maine with two Amish families trying to resuscitate an abandoned apple orchard. The author states it was originally intended to be a trilogy but she needs one more book, #4, to bring the series to closure. I'm not sure what you call a four book series? At the core of this series it's about two brothers that love the same woman and she loves them both, just in different ways. Ms. Woodsmall's strength as a writer is her character development and her insight into human nature and relationships. She uses these talents to bring the characters and the story to life. I really enjoy her books. I'll anxiously await book #4 next year.
