Publisher's Summary

Founded by five enterprising Amish maidels, the new Morningstar Marketplace is a joyous success. What's even more remarkable is the gift the business bestows upon each of these unmarried women - the unexpected blessing of love....

Leaving Flaud's Furniture to teach at the community's new school is a joy for Lydianne Christner. Old Order Amish, but new to Morning Star, she's grateful that the congregation trusts her with the position - but she panics when handsome Bishop Jeremiah Shetler asks about the life she left behind. If anyone discovers the secret she's hiding, she would, quite rightly, be shunned. 

A widower, Bishop Jeremiah admires young Lydianne's youthful energy and skill with the children. He's also curious about her past and the burden he senses on her heart. When his request to court her is refused, he's stung and lonelier than ever. It isn't until a crisis prompts a tearful Lydianne to confess to him that Jeremiah is faced with a choice that requires all of his faith - and teaches them both that love and forgiveness go hand in hand.

Never asked for this book.

I did not want this book which is why I never ordered it. Do not assume I want a book. I will order what I want to listen to. Thank you.

So sweet it made me cry

I NEVER cry from joy or happiness. But the ending resulted in a culmination so satisfying and sweet I shed a few sweet tears.

Shunning

Love the narrator. Totally different story, intriguing, and entertaining. My first book by Ms Hubbard but looking forward to reading/listening to more of her books.
