Overview

Returning to Pleasant Valley is giving Hannah Conroy a much-needed chance at a new life. But now she must discover her true place in the world …
 
Unexpected tragedy has left Hannah without her soldier husband and a home for her baby son, Jamie. Seeking refuge, she comes to live with her aunt in Pleasant Valley, a place she hasn’t seen since childhood, when her parents left the Mennonite faith. Working in her aunt’s bakery is a way for Hannah to get back on her feet, but she isn’t sure if she can live by tradition—or if she and Jamie should stay for good. She finds an unexpected, sympathetic listener in furniture maker William Brand. His stutter makes him feel like a permanent outsider in his Amish community, and he understands her loneliness.
 
Hannah is irresistibly drawn to the shy, caring William, and her education in speech therapy makes it natural for her to want to help him speak more easily. But how can she encourage his attention when she might someday leave Pleasant Valley, and when her father-in-law, a military officer, is scheming to take Jamie away from her? As William seeks the courage to stand up for the woman who believes in him, Hannah must decide where her true home lies—in the free, ever-changing world she knows, or in the simpler, loving community she’s found…

    As usual Marta Perry not only has a fantastic story line but you get a real feel for life in the Amish Community.I love the series of stories, you feel as if you know the characters.

    The stories make me think and strengthen my faith. Once I start it is hard to put the book down.

    This is the sixth book in Marta Perry's Pleasant Valley series.

    This is the sixth book in Marta Perry's Pleasant Valley series. Following the tragic death of her soldier husband, Travis, during the war, Hannah and her young son Jamie have moved back to Pleasant Valley to live with her Mennonite aunt Paula and work in Paula's bakery. Hannah longs to return to the English world where she has lived since she was 9 but she can't afford it and has limited support there. Paula is thrilled to have Hannah back as she misses her sister. Paula wants Hannah to join the Mennonite community. Travis' retired officer father, Robert, missed most of Travis' life while serving in the military. He thinks Hannah won't raise Jamie to remember Travis and respect his sacrifice as a soldier in the peaceful, non-violent Mennonite community he considers a cult. He wants to take Jamie away from Hannah. In spite of being torn in two directions, Hannah uses what she learned in her speech training in the English world to help Amish furniture maker William to learn to overcome his stuttering. But William's family is against William changing. Despite that, Hannah works with William until Robert comes to town. The question of whether Robert will take Jamie scares Hannah and forces her to fight. Will Robert and his money win? Will Hannah stay in Pleasant Valley or return to the English world? What happens between Hannah and William? Does William overcome his stuttering?

    Although this is part of the Pleasant Valley series, you can read one without reading the others. It was great to see the previous books' characters in this as well and to see what has happened in their lives since their story or the previous book. For this book, you will read about William who was a part of Rachel's Garden (book 2). To understand all of the characters better, you should read the other books. I like how Marta Perry introduces the next book's character, Naomi, in this book and look forward to reading her book, Naomi's Christmas.
