Now a New York Times and USA Bestseller! Seek a fresh start with Amish widower Samuel Fisher as he journeys from Lancaster County to Bluegrass Country, hoping to find a balm for the grief he’s carried with him. Will this single father, burdened by yesterday’s memories, discover a new and perhaps better life in Kentucky, the land of tomorrow? Esther Beiler, who helps watch Samuel’s children, develops a crush on Samuel and a true affection for his kids. Can she win his heart, or has she already lost it to an English woman? How will God untangle star-crossed lovers when jealousies and misconceptions threaten to tear them apart?
Wandas ancestors were part of the Anabaptist faith, and her novels are based on personal research intended to accurately portray the Amish way of life. Her books are well-read and trusted by many Amish, who credit her for giving readers a deeper understanding of the people and their customs.
When Wanda visits her Amish friends, she finds herself drawn to their peaceful lifestyle, sincerity, and close family ties. Wanda enjoys photography, ventriloquism, gardening, bird-watching, beachcombing, and spending time with her family. She and her husband, Richard, have been blessed with two grown children, six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

Distraught from his wife's unexpected death, Samuel Fisher uproots his four children from their community in Pennsylvania and seeks a new life in Kentucky. While he works on building Englisher Bonnie Taylor's bed and breakfast, he hires Esther Beiler to look after his children. In the months that follow, Esther develops a genuine love for the children and eventually feelings for Samuel. But can Samuel's heart ever heal enough to love again?
"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds," says Psalm 147:3. With this key verse in mind, Brunstetter sends her audience on a journey to discover where God is in times of grief. Her likeable characters and simple writing style make that journey easy to follow. I found her character's thought processes to be slightly unrealistic, but I would still recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a simple story of beginning again after life deals a harsh setback.
