When the future is threatened by the past, can she trust herself to make the right choice?
Despite growing pains in her 1846 Amish community in Indiana, Naomi Schrock has settled into a comfortable life in her parents' home with her adopted son, Davey. Surrounded by family and friends, she tries not to think about the fact that she's not at the top of any man's list of potential wives. Yet when Cap Stoltzfus moves into the area and befriends Davey, Naomi finds herself caught between the plans she has made for her future and the tantalizing thought that Cap might be part of a life she never dared to hope for.
When a couple shows up claiming to be Davey's true family, Naomi and Cap must unite to make the decision that will determine the boy's future--as well as their own.
Reviewer: Sabrina Wade
We all struggle with our faith or lack thereof. Questioning whether the Good Lord exists. Whether our way of life is truly according to the scriptures. Why bad things happen to “good” faithful people. Naomi struggled with this, as well as several characters in this novel.
What was epic is when life happens, because it will, we have two choices. To know that the Good Lord is good all the time and knows all that is happening with us individually or scoff at the Good Lord and turn our backs. Guess what?! We can come to these two roads on a regular basis; more than once in a day!
Excellent novel! Depicting real life struggles, grace, unconditional love, and long-suffering.
