The first of three Amish-set novels in which a woman's
faith must guide her through challenging times.
All of Pleasant Valley seems to think the newcomer from
Lancaster County is the perfect match for Teacher Leah.
After all, so few new families come to their separate Amish
community, and fewer still unmarried men. Daniel Glick is a
widower with three young children to look after-clearly he's
in need of a wife.
Daniel's past haunts him. Though
he cannot miss the beauty in Leah's bright eyes and patient
ways, he also sees a reminder of his pain-filled marriage.
Leah, too, has a burden to bear. Years ago, she was engaged
to Johnny Kile, and she was heartbroken when he decided to
leave the Amish community. Since then she has immersed
herself in teaching, forgetting any hopes of having her own
family. When Johnny returns, seeking reconciliation, Leah
must decide between two pathways, either of which will
completely change her life.
