Product Description

Amish schoolteacher Leah Beiler is content nurturing her young "scholars" and helping out on her large family's Pennsylvania farm in Pleasant Valley. She has long since recovered from the defection of her former fianci Johnny Kile, who left the Amish community several years ago. But now Johnny has returned. Working at a local medical clinic on research into inherited diseases common among the Amish, he asks for Leah's help in circumventing his "shunned" status and reuniting him with his family, in particular with his twin, Rachel, who is also Leah's best friend. Johnny also encourages Leah to help out at the clinic, working as a liaison with the Amish community. Is Johnny secretly hoping to convince Leah to leave the community and join him in an "English" life together?

Publisher's Description

In the first novel set in the Amish community of Pleasant Valley, a teacher must rely on her faith to guide her heart through challenging times.

All of Pleasant Valley seems to think the newcomer from Lancaster County is the perfect match for schoolteacher Leah Beiler. After all, so few new families come to their secluded Amish community, and even fewer unmarried men. Daniel Glick is a widower with three young children to look after—clearly he's in need of a wife. 

But Daniel’s past haunts him at every turn. Though he cannot miss the beauty in Leah’s bright eyes and patient ways, he also sees a reminder of the pain he came so far to escape. Leah, too, has a burden on her heart. Years ago she was engaged to Johnny Kile, and was heartbroken when he decided to leave the Amish community. Since then she has immersed herself in her love of the children she teaches, forgetting any hopes of having her own family. 

When Johnny returns, seeking reconciliation, Leah must decide between two pathways, either of which will change her life forever...

    Marta Perry is a good writer. She has some humour in her book just when you need it. Suspense is also in her books. I enjoy reading stories about the Amish folk.

    I loved this book. It was exciting, interesting and full of adventure. I liked Leah, she was very believable and I sympathized with her heartached and loved her way with children as a school teacher. I liked Daniel and was thrilled Johnny couldn't persuade her to change her beliefs. I loved how Leah's love for the Lord did not sway when temptation presented itself. She was grounded deeply in the Lord and would not change. I appaud that. I highly recommend this book.
