Product Description

It has been almost a year since the Amish community of Pleasant Valley lost Ezra Brand to a tragic accident. Since then, his wife Rachel has struggled to raise their three children and run their dairy farm. Rachel has always believed that nothing happens without God's will, but in these tough times, she's finding it a challenge to discern His plan for her life. Rachel's friends and family have come forward to help-Rachel's friend Leah, who is now married and expecting a child; Ezra's brothers, who work on the farm; and Rachel's parents, who are no strangers to griefafter their only son, Johnny, left the Amish community. But all of their well-intentioned constant advice puts undue pressure on Rachel. When Gideon Zook, Ezra's best friend who survived the accident, asks her permission to build the greenhouse that Ezra had always promised her, she finds his presence too painful a reminder of the past.

Publisher's Description

An Amish widow must rely on her faith and the kindness of her close-knit community as she mends her broken heart in this compelling novel in the Pleasant Valley series.

It has been almost a year since the Amish community of Pleasant Valley lost Ezra Brand to a tragic accident. Since then, his wife Rachel has struggled to raise their three children and run their dairy farm...

Rachel’s friends and family have come forward to help. But all of their constant advice, however well intentioned, puts undue pressure on Rachel. And when Ezra’s best friend, Gideon Zook, asks her permission to build the greenhouse that Ezra had always promised her, she finds his presence too painful a reminder of the past.

As spring turns to summer, and Rachel puts her heart into growing the plants that have always brought her joy, can she discover the courage to embrace new beginnings?

    I love the stories "behind the Amish scenes" They really give a closer look at what makes as community. I also love that my daughter and I have so much to talk about, after reading these. These books really make me take a second look at my life and faith.

    They are well written, family friendly, and a pleasure to read over and over again.

    I like the way a central character from the past is still there but that there is a new central character to learn more about.
