    No woman rejoices at widowhood. The loss of a spouse often feels like the end of the world. It is no different for Barbara Zook who loses her beloved David and is left to raise her son¿s and run his harness shop. Once again, Brunstetter¿s strong characters are evident in this charming love story. Barbara knows she is expected to remarry, but her heart¿s desire is not to become Bishop John¿s wife and mother to his four daughters. She wants to keep the harness shop open and running for her sons. After hiring Paul Hilty to work in the shop after she gives birth to her fourth son, Barbara finds her feelings for him to be roaming every-which-way. But rumors and speculation have Paul thinking Barbara is planning to marry Bishop John. With this knowledge, Paul seemingly gives up and plans to leave Holmes County. Can Barbara push the sorrow aside find love again with Paul? Or is it too late?

    This book was very hard to put down. I cried with Barbara throughout the book. The struggles that she faced without her husband would break some people but she was a strong person and let someone in that loved her and could help her. I would reccommend this book to anyone. I love all of wanda's books...awesome read.

    Barbara is a widow. She has 4 boys one she just gave birth to--eight months after her husband died. For an Amish woman, she certainly is determined and independent. She tries to keep her husband¿s leatherworking shop open. She loves working in the shop, and she wants to pass it down to her son, Aaron. Working in the shop and taking care of the kids starts to take a toll on her. She hires a temporary worker once she has the baby. She both appreciates him and resents him. Bishop John Frey decides he needs to marry her. He is the most arrogant, self-centered character Brunstetter has ever created. I felt guilty for despising the bishop, but it was warranted. Barbara does not love the bishop. Will she marry him anyway? What will she do when her temporary worker leaves? Will the community understand that she loves the shop or will they continue to encourage her to sell it? I really liked Barbara. She is a self-motivated entrepreneur and a loving mother. Even when fighting postpartum depression, she has a strong will. This is another great book from Brunstetter.

    She's done it again

    Wanda has done it again. She makes you feel like you are right on the scene while the story takes place. Real life is what she puts you into or so you think. Her books are very highly recommended. I haven't been disappointed yet. I have read many of her books. The waiting for the next one to come out is always the hardest.

    Wonderful Addition

    This is a wonderful addition to Wanda Brunstetter's family of books. The characters in the book really pull you in and make you believe you are really there. It's a great continuation of the Brides of Webster County Series. If you are an avid reader of Wanda's books, this one is for you!

    Wonderful family togetherness

    I was happy to see Barbara find a new husband, since her first husband died. It takes someone very special to come into your life and be the dad to 4 children that are not your own. It was a very good book.

    when reading this book I got the actual feelings of how strong Amish women are and how their trust in God helps them cope with what is handed to them in whatever way God sees fit
