Overview

With the heat of summer comes the warmth of sunlight, shadows of the past, and Miriam’s chance to win the heart of the only man she’s ever loved—her husband.

The death of Jakob Lapp, a beloved member of the Amish community and the builder of the Stonyfield Farm Stand, is difficult for all. On the day of Jakob’s funeral, his beloved daughter Miriam must deal with her grief as well as mounting apprehension, knowing that she will soon see her sister Sarah who left the Amish community to live the Englisch life several years ago.

Sarah’s arrival forces Miriam to face the problems in her marriage. She has been unable to give her husband, Daniel, a child and fears he is not happy. Miriam has always suspected that Daniels’s heart truly lies with her sister, and she worries about the effect Sarah’s return will have on their already strained marriage. But when a disaster threatens the farm stand, everyone must come together, allowing new hope to grow not only for the community, but for Miriam as well . . .

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Daniel, Miriam's husband, is the only man that she has ever loved, but she has always feared that he is in love with her sister, Sarah. Sarah left six years ago to live as an Englisher in San Francisco and has never returned to their Amish community. But when the sisters' father, Jakob, dies, Sarah sends news that she will be returning for the funeral. Miriam is filled with trepidation, concerned that her already tenuous marriage will suffer even further. VERDICT This engaging, character-driven series launch is sure to appeal to readers who enjoy the Amish romances of Suzanne Fisher Woods.

Good story but short. 1st in a series, not sure if I will purchase the next one due to the cost and short length of the book(s).
