One minute Joanna Schrock was arguing with her parents, and the next her parents' lives were claimed in a hit-and-run buggy accident. Her body is broken, but her heart is in even deeper pain - after all, how do you cope with your parents' deaths when your last words were spoken in anger?
After an extended stint in a physical rehabilitation center, she re-nters her Amish life. But nothing is the same - not even her feelings for Andrew Beiler. Joanna has loved Andrew since the age of 12. She is thrilled when Andrew wants to get married, but she wonders whether it's love he's feeling or pity. As the couple's wedding date approaches, Joanna isn't overcome with the deep joy she was hoping to find; instead she's wracked with anxiety and guilt.
Joanna hears God whispering to her, "Be strong and courageous," but she's afraid that courage looks a lot like walking away from her dreams and into the plan of her Heavenly Father. If Joanna takes the first step toward healing, will it cost her everything she's ever wanted? Or could God be changing the desires of her heart?

I loved the first book in this series and I loved this one as well. I would say to listen to them in order. The stories are raw and genuine, tackling tough issues. The narrator did a great job as well! looking forward to the next book in the series!
I enjoy reading Lynn Austin's historical fiction. Her books oh the Civil are awesome as well.
This was a wonderful story of giving forgiveness as well as receiving forgiveness for ones's self. God wants us to enjoy His forgiveness and be willing to forgive others. Sometimes the hardest person to forgive is ourselves.
