Riddled with doubt and lingering regrets, will Suzanne and Paul find strength in God to explore a second chance at love? It wasn't easy to move back to the Old Order Mennonite community from which quiet, responsible Suzanne Zimmerman was shamefully sent away as a pregnant teen. Returning 20 years later to take care of her mother, Suzanne and Alexa - the daughter she raised as her own - have spent months rebuilding relationships with her family. Now with the upcoming wedding of their biological daughter, Suzanne and Paul find themselves drawn to one another once again - but with new challenges to face. They have been single parents with painful pasts. Can Paul and Suzanne find the strength to rebuild the loving relationship that was torn apart by their teen pregnancy so long ago? Suzanne must also let go of Alexa as she heads back to Indianapolis to visit friends - and as her chance to find her birth parents. Leaving the bed-and-breakfast in Suzanne's apprehensive hands, Alexa embarks on a journey that will certainly change her life completely. Can mother and daughter trust God to restore all things in his timing?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a wonderful story of adoption, love and redemption. Being book two in the series, it would be helpful to read Book 1 first.
The story allowed me to see things from multiple view points without feeling like it was stilted in the favor of one particular viewpoint. No compromise with Christian values and yet allowed for freedom in viewpoints in non-essential areas. Excellent narration and story.
I didn't want the book to end and hated to say goodbye to the characters.
Good narration, good with different voices in all 3 of the books in this trilogy. However, in the third book, it painfully annoying with the consistent swallowing. My gosh, take a break, get a drink, turn the microphone off, whatever it takes.
It was a good book and good series overall, really enjoyed God's Word and His work in restoring our lives.
A happy ending was the good part. I was glad the two mothers and Paul finally let God help them. I stayed so ill with the selfishness of Suzanne, Cynthia and Paul for most of the book. They were so childish for Christian adults. It was exhausting to me. I may not have finished it had I not read the first two books. Loved Abigail Zimmerman!
Only if you have read the first two books, "When Mercy rains" and "When Grace sings". I enjoyed the first two books.
I love your stories each one brings God into the many issues of life that cannot be endured without His help
I hope you keep writing. I have almost all your books.
Thanks again, Lucy
