Publisher's Summary

Laura Riehl is no stranger to heartache. Less than a year after her mother's death, Laura finds herself burying another loved one: her best friend, Savilla, who has died after a brief and sudden illness. Laura feels heartbroken and alone, but her pain is nothing compared to that of Allen, the husband Savilla has left behind. He now faces a life so different from the one he imagined, plus a baby to care for on his own.

When Laura offers to help Allen with baby Mollie, he jumps at the opportunity until a permanent solution can be found. She'd do anything to lend a hand to Allen and to honor her best friend's memory.

Rudy, Laura's boyfriend, is initially supportive of her plan, but the more time Laura spends with Allen, the more jealous and frustrated Rudy seems to become. As Laura and Allen face hardships together, their friendship takes a surprising yet comforting turn, and she discovers an attraction she's never felt with Rudy. Would falling for Allen betray the people she cares about most, or would denying those feelings betray her heart?

This latest installment in the Amish Homestead series returns us to Lancaster County, home of the beloved Riehls, where a family's strength, and advice from a new friend, may help Laura find God's direction.

Sweet Story

I love reading books about the Amish. I love their simple lifestyle. This one is the second in a set of three connecting stories. It was of course about love and how one can feel about a man who has just lost his wife who is also your best friend. I liked the fact that a few sensitive comments from some older but wiser women can change one's perspective for the good.
