Lydia's mother also has someone after her affections. Can she soften her heart enough to love him? There is love, tragedy, and hope in this book.
I have a soft spot in my heart for Wanda E. Brunstetter, because she is the one who got me hooked on Amish fiction. I have loved the majority of her books, but I had felt as if her newest ones were faltering. It made me fear that Brunstetter was losing her charm. Have no fear! She is back with a vengence. This is by far the best Brunstetter book ever written. I could not put it down!
