In Pleasant Valley, Pennsylvania, Widow Rachel Brand has no time to grieve the death of her husband Ezra in an accident. Instead she has a farm to keep and three young children to raise by herself though she knows her Amish neighbors will offer help. Ezra's best friend Gideon Zook, who survived the accident, wants to honor his deceased buddy by completing a project he was going to do for his wife. Ezra intended to build a greenhouse for Rachel. However, her family pressures her to sell the farm instead of starting a nursery. However, questionable accidents leaves Gideon and Rachel to wonder if someone covets the land so much as to drive the widow away and to reconsider what happened to Ezra even as they fall in love. The second Pleasant Valley Amish romance (see Leah's Choice) is an interesting look at two people who lost their first cherished mates who are falling in love but are in denial about how they feel. The lead couples makes the tale as the ghosts of Ezra and Naomi stand in their way as Gideon is unable to move on; somewhat because he suffers from survivor guilt and somewhat from his disbelief that one can love twice. Fans will enjoy a trip to Lancaster County as Marta Perry provides a charming second chance at love romance. Harriet Klausner

This is the second book in Marta Perry's Pleasant Valley series about Rachel, a widow. She struggles to keep her farm and build her garden and its related business. Who is trying to sabotage her efforts? Good mystery to this book and a good story as well. Although this is part of the Pleasant Valley series, you can read one without reading the others. It was great to see Leah from the previous book in this as well and to see what has happened in her life since her book. To understand all of the characters better, you should read the other books. I like how Marta Perry introduces the next book's character in the previous book.

Another excellent book from Marta Perry! Very readable, with sweet romance, tension, and a helpful lesson in forgiveness (not given with a heavy hand). I did not want to put this book down, so I highly recommend it, along with anything else Marta Perry writes.

Heartwarming story of grieving adults and their struggle to start living again through the restraints and the closed community of the Amish.

Rachel's Garden, the second book in the Pleasant Valley series was very enjoyable. Rachel and Ezra were able to rise above extreme heartbreak to find a happy ending. The closeness and love that grow between Ezra and Rachel's children was very touching. Rachel, was faced with a number of decision's that were hard for an Amish widow. Though Rachel's faith in God, and the need to provide for her family Rachel, was able to over come these hardships.
