Every year, 30-40 young Amish men descend on the cozy little town of West Kootenai, Montana, arriving in the spring to live there for six months and receive “resident” status for the hunting season in the fall. They arrive as bachelors, but go home with brides!
Sarah Shelter has lived in West Kootenai for the last 10 years and wonders if she will ever fall in love. Since the tragic death of her best friend, she carries her memories in a jar along with the small items connected to them. For just as long, she’s also been carrying around her emotions instead of allowing them to penetrate deep into her heart.
Now she’s met a kind and gentle man who may be able to break down the wall. But can Sarah risk her heart to finally achieve her dreams?

Much of the focus of this book is on the impact of two girls' friendships. So in a way this is almost a women's or girl's fiction book but with a romance. The Memory Jar is an interesting device to employ in the story. The book had a simple quality to it that some might find appealing. A good listen and my first book by Tricia Goyer. She is a very popular author.
I really enjoyed the reflections the characters pondered and lessons learned.
I really enjoyed the ending.
It was a worthwhile read and the reader did a great job!
i enjoyed this story it was a good listen the story was endearing and it showed dealing with greif and relationship and living live to the next level memories are good but we all need to move on the preformance was good and not dragging to sleep kept me awake the reason i get audio books
This was a very good book, however, I wish it was longer..glad to find out it was number one in a series.
