A husband and son abandoned to forge a path alone. A young woman who sacrificed her dreams. How will the God of grace and hope help them find their way? At 19 years old, Old Order Amish Jolene Keim was on the brink of happily-ever-after when everything changed, stealing the future she expected and burdening her with an unbearable decision. For the next 10 years, Jolene throws herself into family life - and then she meets Andy Fisher. The horse trainer and father to a sweet nine-year-old challenges her and holds up a mirror to issues Jolene has been unwilling to face. Andy is cautious about his deepening friendship with Jolene, but he believes she knows the truth about him - that he is a grass widower. As a man whose wife has abandoned him six years past, he is unable to divorce or remarry according to the Amish ways. Andy has wrestled with God concerning his reality, and he had found peace with the solitary future facing him...until he met Jolene. As Andy and Jolene find themselves confronted by difficult choices, will they trust in God's guidance - or will the allure of their deepening friendship only lead to further temptation?

The story line of the book
Lester, he seemed like the funny old man that didn't care what people thought anymore and I liked that about him.
I thought over all she was good
When Andi found out that his wife had died two years past.
Always loved this author and was not dissapointed with this one either. Great story base, so many challenges to face made it so surreal. I love the narrator that I listened to the audio version twice.
I love books!
Cindy Woodsmall is my favorite author of books with an Amish setting. She can really pull on the heart strings and this book is no different. I truly believe she could move away from Amish settings and be just as, if not more, successful than she is now. Her insight into human nature and ability to communicate it is tremendous. I really enjoy the way she can tell stories about good people that happen to be Amish and the good and bad in their lives. I like learning about the Amish way of life. I also enjoy how she brings a Christian way of life into her stories. Enjoy
I enjoyed this book so nerdy much. I have read all her books and she never fails to gather me right into her story. Thank you Cindy.
