Amy Knackstedt hopes a new start in Weaverly, Kansas, will help heal the pain of losing her husband and provide a better future for her three children. But her new neighbor, Tim Roper, is not pleased to have an Old Order Mennonite family living next to his apple orchard. Tim left the Mennonite faith years ago and doesn't want any reminders of his former life.
Yet when circumstances throw Amy and Tim together, they form a friendship that surprises them both. Will past hurts always be a barrier between them, or will this tentative relationship blossom into something more?
A great story dealing with loss in two different ways. One character choses to deal by isolating themselves from everyone and everything around them, the other choses to embrace God and their faith to help them heal in the toughest of times. The author pointed out the simplicity of the mennonite life and how it differers from the rest of the world. How they struggle like us all, but they hold fast to their beliefs and faith in God.
This book has a very positive tone and very light. Leaves you feeling refreshed and renewed in your Faith in God and mankind. WOuld definitely reccomend!
