Publisher's Summary

Get swept away in the first installment of Amy Clipston’s Amish Legacy series.

They were “only friends”...but they wanted so much more.

Crystal Glick is grateful to live with her brother’s family since her father died and her fiancé, Owen, broke their engagement. Crystal loves her bruderskinner and cheerfully helps her sister-in-law through a difficult pregnancy with babies number seven and eight, but she yearns for a husband and children of her own.

Duane Bontrager is mourning the recent death of his wife, Connie, after 24 years of marriage. He and his grown sons have a thriving roofing business but can’t get used to life without her. As the young men prepare to launch out on their own, Duane can’t imagine life alone - nor with anyone but Connie.

When a roofing job at the Glicks introduces Duane and Crystal, they’re attracted in spite of their 14-year age difference. But their bishop thinks Duane is better suited for the sweet widow Tricia, and Duane’s sons object to his interest in any woman. Crystal’s family fears losing her indispensable help. If she must go, they’d rather she be reunited with Owen in spite of his betrayal.

They’re the only two who believe they’re a match made in heaven. Can Duane and Crystal overcome the obstacles to love?

“Amy Clipston has once again penned a sweet romance that will have her readers rooting for a heroine who deserves her own happily-ever-after.” (Kelly Irvin, best-selling author)

Good story

This was a good story that kept my interest. Looking forward to following this family in future booms. The narration was poor. I had to experiment with the speeds to get to a point where I could tolerate it. She did not take a breath between scene changes. And it took me a few sentences to realize they were at somebody else’s house. And between chapters, she waited so long I had to check to see if I didn’t lose connection. I think I may read the rest of this series in book version if she continues to narrate.
