Providence brings together a mismatched family, giving all three a second chance for love. Only love may never have had such a tough job.
Lydia Miller is an anomaly among her Amish people-a single woman in her 30s, running her own store, determined to forge a life on her own. But when Joel Yoder comes into town to sell his property, Lydia suddenly finds all of her hopes and dreams crumbling around her and a new opportunity placed in her lap.
Joel has his own problems. Recently jilted by his fiancie, Joel has seen his own dreams of moving to a newly established Amish community begin to falter. The new community welcomes married couples only. With his dreams quickly slipping from his fingers, Joel suddenly sees the only option he thinks he has-a marriage of convenience for both of them.
As the new couple begins life in a new settlement, they are even more surprised when a foster child in need of a home finds her way to them. Yet what will happen when the English world and the Amish world collide?

Tell us a little about yourself. Before I became an author, a wife, and a mother, I was a nurse. I worked my way through nursing school in a home for the elderly which operated as a ministry run by a Beachy Amish family. During those years, my closest friends were a part of the Mennonite and Amish communities, including everything from very traditional to mainstream.
What was your motivation behind this project? In 2016, when groups of Canadian Amish/Mennonites began moving to Prince Edward Island, I knew there were stories to be told. And I wanted to tell them. Of course, my stories and characters are fictional, but I hope the spirit of them remains true.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Through the fictional characters and New Hope Amish community of this book series, I hope readers will gain an appreciation for the simple life, as well as encouragement through the spiritual struggles which will strengthen the reader's own faith.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Writing is cathartic in many ways. My process has become a pattern of read, write, heal. The characters come alive, in a sense, to me. Creating their dilemmas and solutions requires me to dig deep within myself for answers. As a result, the process of writing Forever Home included a life altering lesson on forgiveness for me.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Like almost all romance readers, I require a happy ending. I prefer a believable one, but satisfying nonetheless. As children of God, we are promised a happy forever after, no matter what happens to us today. I do my best to deliver that kind of complete ending to my readers.
