Amish widow Mattie vows never to love again - until a suspicious outsider with a shadowy past comes crashing into her fragile world.
Mattie Diener can barely keep it together. A young Amish widow and mother of two young children, she faces the lingering heartbreak of lost love, her son's mysterious illness, and a torrent of accusations that threaten to undo her.
Bo Lambright is a fast-rising social-services investigator whose high-society mother won't rest until she finds his Mrs. Right. Despite Bo's worldly success, the raw ache of a shadowy past and a series of unsettling dreams have left him reeling.
When Mattie and Bo cross paths, all signs point to disaster. Yet as they face a crucible of trials and tragedies together, longings begin to stir that seem destined only to end in more heartbreak. Is a miracle possible - not only of healing but of forbidden love? What secrets lie in Bo's dreams? And will Mattie find the courage to face her uncertain future - or will she simply run away?

Always enjoy Amish books, but I didn't care for the child welfare investigation story that ran through almost this whole book. The male character and his story sounded a bit unbelievable and Battle Creek is not north of the bridge in Michigan either. All and all not a complete waste of time, I stitch when I listen to audio books and it was interesting enough for that combo to continue through, but had I been driving I wouldn't have listened through the whole book.
