Product Description

Korey has been spending time with cousins in Ohio and hasn't been home in a year. When he does return, it’s clear the distance he feels from his family spans more than time and space. Plus he’s the odd man out among his friends who are all dating or engaged, and he’s tired of being teased for his decision to remain a bachelor.

Savannah Zook has always felt the need to use her voice to speak up for her younger brother who is bullied for having a learning disability . . . even if it means the community judges her for being outspoken and blunt. But after being abandoned by a date that her friends pressured her to go on, she’s ready to give up on courting altogether.

When Korey gives the stranded Savannah a ride home, they quickly realize a solution to their situations and agree to pretend date each other so their friends will leave them alone. Both are relieved to find a relationship without any pressure or strings attached, but neither are prepared when their pretend feelings turn real and complicate their scheme. Will they admit their feelings for each other in time to recognize that God has had the perfect plan for them all along?

Publisher's Description

Korey Bontrager and Savannah Zook are just pretending to date—but could their feelings turn into something more?

Korey Bontrager knows he’s been an immature dummkopp. When his widowed dad remarried, Korey was unwelcoming to his kindhearted stepmother. Then he became estranged from his older brother. But after fourteen months in Ohio, God called Korey back to Pennsylvania.

Easier said than done. Back home, Korey feels left behind by his family and friends, who want to see him happily married. Instead of looking for a new relationship, he finds himself spending time with Savannah Zook: the most outspoken maedel he’s ever met. She’s also confident and brave, having raised her younger brother from a young age. And she’s a natural beauty. But, hard as her friends try to convince her otherwise, she has no interest in dating. Her priority is looking out for her bullied brother.

So when Savannah suggests they pretend to date as a way to get her friends—and his family—off their backs, Korey readily agrees. Soon, he can’t imagine life without her. But could Savannah ever truly be part of his future?

Set in the faithful Amish community of Lancaster County, Breaking New Ground gives the most stubborn Bontrager a chance to redeem his story.

Editorial Reviews

'BREAKING NEW GROUND is a beautiful story of heart, hope, and healing. You'll feel the warmth and emotion of this book long after the last satisfying page.' -- Jennifer Beckstrand, USA TODAY Bestselling Author of THE AMISH QUILTMAKER'S UNCONVENTIONAL NIECE

'This is such a sweet story! Savannah and Corey were both hurting so much and needed some time to work out their angst. I love how their friendship and their plan to end all the speculation about both of them still being single turned into something more for both of them. And Corey's kindness to Savannah's brother Toby was a gracious example of God's love for all children. This prodigal son story touched my heart and gave me such hope. A perfectly sweet and touching story that will touch any heart!' -- Lenora Worth, author of PINECRAFT REFUGE
