Audie Award Nominee, Inspirational Fiction, 2013
An unplanned pregnancy. An absent father. Does love really endure all things?
Danielle Kent is 18, pregnant, and hopeful that the child's father - Aaron Lapp - will want to marry her and provide the life she's always dreamed of. Even though Aaron is Old Order Amish, Danielle knows that he wants to leave his community for a life outside of the district. But then Aaron tells Danielle that he doesn't love her - that a wife and baby don't fit into his plans.
Levi Detweiler has enjoyed an unlikely friendship with Danielle for nearly a year, though they have little in common. He's Amish, and she won't even discuss God. When Danielle becomes pregnant with Aaron's child, Levi is sure that Aaron will do the right thing and marry Danielle. When that doesn't happen, God calls on Levi to marry her. It doesn't make sense, and it means that Levi will have to leave his home in the Old Order community to make a life for himself, Danielle, and the baby. Levi seeks God's will in a situation that seems impossible - knowing that only by faith are all things are possible.

I have read "The Daughters of the Promise" books and "Land of Canaan" books, and loved them all. This one offers many points of inspiration that can apply to everyone. Danielle's character is very real, but her tears were a little exhausting after a while. Kirsten Potter did another fantastic job of bringing the characters to life. All in all, I am glad that I bought this book and am really looking forward to the next installment.
I really enjoyed this! Beth Wiseman is always a favorite of mine. The narrator did an excellent job reading the story as well. It was hard to put down, even in the audio version!
I like light reading, usually mysteries. I also enjoy quilting novels.
I didn't read the print version but like to have audiobooks in my car.
Her voice is so relaxing.
