I can’t use heartwarming enough to describe this story. The characters had issues to work through but I enjoyed getting to know them all. Grace’s three year old son Levi had my heart right from the start with his speech impediment.
Becoming a widow at a young age with two young children to take care of, a jam making business to keep up and finding out she’s expecting nearly sends Grace over the edge. Her teenage niece Miriam moves in to lend a helping hand and give emotional support.
Next door, confirmed bachelor Elijah tries to help by milking her cows and collecting her chicken’s eggs each morning while working his own dairy farm. He is also taking care of his dad who has a hard time getting around and tires easily. Elijah has a hard time trusting women after his mother left when he was eight and took his baby sister with her.
Grace has a hard time accepting help from others and Elijah has a hard time with trust so its interesting to see the interaction between these two.
Amish stories are some of my favorites and this one was an easy read that I finished in record time. And I’m using the term heartwarming once again because it truly was one that held my attention and gave me a warm fuzzy feeling when I finished the final page.
I received a complimentary ebook copy from the publisher through Netgalley but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise.
