Publisher's Summary

Ruth Byler has never failed at anything in her life, but Zach Bender is going to test the limits of her heart. 

A student at heart, Ruth is finally a teacher at the Amish schoolhouse. But after her first day, she wonders if she's made a mistake. The students want nothing to do with learning. Deflated, she makes a promise to herself to not give up - not yet. 

When Zach comes to fix a repair at the schoolhouse, he notices the young Amish teacher and the disorderly students. After seeing enough, he storms into the classroom and demands the students show Ruth respect. Satisfied he's done a good deed, he waits around so Ruth can thank him. Instead she's furious he interfered. 

Zach leaves, thinking she's still the snobby bookworm he knew from school. He doesn't have much use for learning. And now he has little use for Ruth. There's more to Zach's story, and when Ruth finds out the truth about why he hated school, the consequences leave them seeing each other in a different light. Ruth can help Zach if he'll let her. But to do so, he'll need to offer her his hand.

good story.

getting the baby velda's name wrong in this book was quite disappointing also I have a problem following Callie reading. sometimes she changes the voices on the characters throughout the story and then you're not sure who you're talking to or who you're

Sigh!

I would’ve liked to have given this story a five. It has a wonderful storyline, but I get tired of every character going through the same doubt, uncertainty, and aversion to the budding romance. Mix it up! Everyone is different, and sometimes people know they’re in love and want to be in love! Otherwise delightful!
