When Amish widow Claire Shetler is attracted to the man behind her fiancés death, they both embark on a healing journey to discover Gods hidden mercies, perfect for fans of Beverly Lewis and Beth Wiseman.
At seventeen, Tobias Miller smashed his cousins car into a tree, killing his brother only four hours before he was scheduled to marry Claire Shetler. Unable to live with his fathers bottomless grief and anger, Tobias left the Amish church and ran away to join the Marines. Twenty-seven years later, Tobias, now called Tom, returns to Mt. Hope, Ohio, a wounded, decorated Marine helicopter pilot, and rents an apartment over Claires workshop.
A widowed Amish midwife, Claire is struggling to support her family. When Tom rents her room, she does not recognize the disfigured soldier as the boy she once knew. She only sees the money as a godsend, though she is nervous about having a strange man so close by. Claire never dreams that she will end up falling in love with a battle-scarred soldier.
As Claire and Tom fight their way through the traumas of the past, they discover the tender mercies God has hidden along the way—including a loving father who has been praying for his prodigal son to come home and a God who makes all things new.
