Imagining the anguish a widow who is grieving the loss of her husband and young daughter was really difficult. I have not lost a husband or daughter, but I certainly would never want to have to go through such pain. I have lost a husband through divorce however, and that includes a grief process as well. There were many emotional hurdles to overcome when I married my incredibly wonderful second husband.
I willingly joined in fellowship with another denomination with my husband even after having served as a pastor's wife previously, and the differences between the Mennonites and Amish are much greater than what I experienced in my decision-making process. I love reading Amish fiction. The characters in this story were all lovable although there was one character that was trying on Leah's nerves. I have definitely had relationships with women who interfered in other people's business as this one also another issue explored in the book.
I would like to recommend this novel to those lovers of Amish and Christian fiction.
My rating for this novel is 5 stars.

Sara Yoder is back working her magic among the lovelorn of Seven Poplars and Thomas and Leah might be her biggest challenge yet! A serious grieving widow who can't seem to leave the past behind and a fun-loving bachelor who has been playing the field way too long. Time for them both to settle down...but with each other?! Sweet, funny and faith-filled -- the kind of romance you want to devour in one sitting.
