From the book's back cover:
How Can You Wait on God's Plan When Heaven Seems Silent?
It's summertime in Bliss Creek, and Annie Shirack is trying to fight her feelings for David Plank, a young Amish man who's fighting an aggressive case of Hodgkin's lymphoma. David loves Annie too much to let her into his life, only, he fears, to leave her.
In the middle of her own struggles, Annie meets a homeless young woman named Charisma and her three-year-old daughter, Gracie. Annie welcomes the newcomers into the Shirack household and tries to help them establish a new life. But all the good deeds in the world can't change the ache in Annie's heart...or help her forget the man she loves.
This Amish story has twists and turns to keep you turning pages and also tangles to make you believe the characters are real. Several of the Amish in this story work in town where they are exposed to the local Englisch residents who don't understand Amish standards. This story gives the reader family, relationships, heartache, and forgiveness. A couple of the characters in the story you love at times and then at other times, you'd like to shake some sense into them. It's a good read with strong, memorable characters.
