Series: Pleasant Valley
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 afterclearly he's in need of a wife.
But Daniels past haunts him at every turn. Though he cannot miss the beauty in Leahs 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...

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.
