Publisher's Summary

Abigail has driven other suitors away, but can Micah find a way to show her he cares?

Abigail Kemp has managed to frighten off everyone who's ever driven her home from a singing. Sure, she will live to be an old maid. Abigail starts saving her money to buy a horse, so she can at least have some independence.

Micah Zook is looking for a caregiver for his grandmother, and Abigail needs a new job. He never expected that Abigail would talk so much...or that his grandmother would keep finding ways to set the two of them up. Despite Abigail's constant chatter, she and Micah become friends - until Micah makes a decision that leaves Abigail feeling betrayed. With Christmas in their midst, can Micah find a way to reconcile with Abigail and to reveal what's on his heart?

A Delightful Story

I love feel good stories, and this is a good one! Great characters. The narrator did some voices well and some rather silly. But I like the sweetness she gave the main character.

Very Sweet Story

What a nice story. It’s the shortest of all the Amish love stories I have read, and I wasn’t sure how the author would make it work, but it turned out to be wonderful. In the beginning I thought the narrator was speaking a little fast, but she turned out to be fine and did a good job. I like this author very much. She is able to capture the sweetness and innocence I appreciate so much.
