He doesnÆt plan to stay Amish. She doesnÆt have a plan.
Then an angel draws their hearts toward God . . . and each other.
A buggy-racing champion, a hardworking field-hand, and a terrible cook, Rachel Hartzler does not fit her Amish communityÆs standards for an eligible bride. Hurt by their rejection and still grieving the loss of her brother, Rachel is ready for change.
SheÆs not, however, ready for Jordan Engles. RachelÆs father hired him to help tend the fields so Rachel can learn to cook and sew, thus increasing her chances of finding a husband. She canÆt understand why her father doesnÆt want her help and blames Jordan for trying to replace her beloved brother.
Jordan plans for his time on the Michigan farm to be short. Before his mother passed away, he promised her he'd give her Amish roots a chance. Upon her death, uncertain about what else to do, he came to stay with his Uncle Isaac in Hope Falls. He's curious why his mother left the community she obviously loved. But it doesn't take Jordan long to conclude that the strict lifestyle and the three hour church services are not for him.
But there isnÆt just human interaction at play. Nathaniel, an angel of God, sees the potential in Jordan and RachelÆs hearts from heavenÆs perspective. His goal is to shepherd them toward the path of healing and love.
When tragedy strikes, then strikes again, this angelic being is sent to guide them toward the healing and abundant life promised in GodÆs Word û if only they will listen.
