Publisher's Summary

A heartwarming tale of courage and love from Amish fiction's number-one author.

When a well-to-do family asks Sallie Riehl to be their daughter's nanny for the summer at their Cape May, New Jersey, vacation home, she jumps at the chance to broaden her horizons beyond the Lancaster County Amish community where she grew up. Sallie has long dreamed of seeing more of the world, but her parents are reluctant for her to put off baptism yet another summer, and the timing is unfortunate for Perry Zook, who has renewed interest in courting her.

Though she loves nannying, Sallie has free time on the weekends to enjoy the shore. It is there that she meets Kevin Kreider, a marine biology student who talks freely about all he's learning and asks about her interests, unlike most of the guys she grew up with. Time with Kevin is invigorating, and Sallie realizes she's never felt quite this alive around Perry. Then again, Kevin is Mennonite, not Amish.

Sallie tries to brush aside her growing feelings for Kevin, but she fears what her parents would think about her new friendship. Just as concerning, however, is Sallie's realization that her time in Cape May is increasing her desire to see the world, challenging her plans for the future. Has she been too hasty with her promises, or will Sallie only find what her heart is longing for back home in Paradise Township?

Couldn't ask for more!

Tremendous, God-centered, genuine story that POWERFULLY illustrates truth. Moved me and edified me and pointes me to my Lord.

Disappointment

I usually LOVE Beverly Lewis' books. This one was a total disappointment. I tried three times unsuccessfully to get into it. On the fourth time I forced myself to listen to it. The narration was very good. The story line was actually boring. It is almost as if Beverly Lewis did not write this book. I struggled to get through it. There were a lot of details about nothing. The characters were not compelling. This had the potential to be a great work if some of the characters were given depth. There was a point in the book where there is a rip tide and it had such potential to be compelling but ended up being just a small dot on a blank canvas. Sadly, I do not recommend this book.

Beautiful story

Such a beautiful love story. In a world that doesn't value relationships, God and pure love it is a refreshing respite.

Not very captivating, a little disappointed in the overall lackluster story line. I usually lover her novels.
