Jeremiah Yoder made a bad decision in his youth and left the Mennonite church. He’s back now, but what will it take to convince the people of Pinecraft that he’s changed. Shelley Burkholder doesn’t know what to think about Jeremiah anymore. Even as children, there was a spark between them, yet he made her nervous, too. Now that he’s back, it seems the spark has doubled…along with the discomfort. Will Shelley and Jeremiah let God smooth the rough patches to bring them together?

Loved this book. All about someone overcoming their past. It's hard for people to look at the person you are now rather than the person you once were, a person who did a lot of foolish things and messed up. It's hard for people to forgive sometimes-- and it's hard for people to trust you because you let them down in the past. This is what Jeremiah was struggling with in this story. And Shelley-- she'd been hurt before-- she had put her trust in a man only to have him break her heart by becomin engaged to another... anyway... Shelley is struggling with a lot at home. She has a brother with Down Syndrome that has penchant for running away when upset. Her mother struggles with debilitating depression, which puts more resonsibilities on shelley's plate, such as the housework and the cooking. And she feels responsible for trying to keep her mother in good spirits and trying to maintain the peace. Her father isn't much help. She works a lot and seems to avoid as much of the unpleasantness at home. Shelly also works at the local restaurant (and I suspect she might help out with the household finances). And to top it off, Jeremiah is trying hard to court her. She likes him, but can he really be trusted? Everyone tells her that while he might have returned to his Mennonite faith, he did leave it before and spent years in "the world". They tell her he'll no doubt leave the church again because he no doubt will miss what he had in the outside world. Jeremiah is determined to prove himself a changed person. I really liked this story-- all about forgiveness and overcoming obstacles.totally recommend this book
