From the book’s back cover:
It’s coming on winter, and a group of dedicated families is leaving Bliss Creek to Establish a new community in Missouri. Among them is Bethel Graber, a beautiful young woman with a passion for teaching. But after she is injured in a terrible accident, overseeing a classroom is out of the question…and romance seems lost forever. Especially romance with Elijah Christner, the handsome young farmer whose very presence sets her heart racing.
Bethel begins physical therapy, determined to make a fresh start. But that won’t be easy in the town of New Hope, where the locals seem anything but eager to welcome their new Amish neighbors. Amid growing intimidation from the community, will Bethel find the strength to face her many challenges? And can she find the faith to believe that God still has a plan for her life?
Bethel Graber has lost her greatest passion—teaching—and perhaps her chance for romance with Elijah Christner in a terrible accident. Several families move to New Hope to start a new community where Bethel lives with her brother and his family. Because she’s unable to walk without using crutches, Bethel is unable to help the family. She wants no one’s pity or help, especially from Elijah. He wants to help her but doesn’t understand why she won’t let him. Kelly Irvin gives us a sweet love story that meets obstacles around every bend because of Bethel’s desire for independence and Elijah’s stubbornness. Will they lean on God’s love to help their situation before they argue and make up for the last time? A story and characters you’ll remember long after you turn the last page.
