Publisher's Summary

Spring blossoms with new life and new beginnings for the flourishing Amish community of Promise Lodge. And as a just-opened bakery sweetens the air with fresh-baked goodness, residents will find that change can be a most joyous test....

Recently widowed after twenty years of marriage, Frances Lehman is only just tasting the freedom and opportunity that her Promise Lodge friends enjoy. So she's not about to be pressured into marriage by her widowed brother-in-law, even if she and her daughter have no real means of support. Much more promising is her new friendship with Preacher Marlin Kurtz, though their respective families don't see their relationship as proper....

When Frances suffers a serious injury, she's determined to prove she can recover - and remain independent - without burdening Marlin. Now, with his steadfast belief in real love tested, Marlin's hope is that Promise Lodge's irrepressible residents can help him restore Frances's joy - and that faith will show them a way to turn their fragile second chance into a blessed and abiding future together.

Good read but...

Good book. Except... did I read correctly that the one twin GAVE a baby away? Spin it how you want but that is just ... disturbing. One day that child will grow up to feel like mom couldn’t handle two so she gave her away and kept the other. Just.... disturbing. Please tell me I read that wrong. Maybe she just asked her to help raise the twins?
