ABBY FINDS HER CALLING
The Lambright family's eldest daughter, Abby, runs her own sewing shop. There, she mends the town's clothes and their torn relationships. But the town maidel has sworn off any suitors of her own because of her unrequited love for James Graber, who is about to marry her younger sister, Zanna...
On the wedding day, Zanna is nowhere to be found, breaking James' heart. Zanna has brought shame to her family, but there's more in store for them when they discover how far she has fallen. Long-buried secrets come to light, and they test the bonds of the Cedar Creek community. Abby is at the center of it all, trying to maintain everyone's happiness. But will she ever find her own?
This is one of the best 'community Amish' stories I've read. By that I mean that the story's focus isn't just on the hero and heroine, but on their neighbours as well. There's a bevy of hidden hurt in the Cedar Creek community and it all comes to a head when Abby's sister does the unthinkable.
Abby is a rock -- an anchor for so many who gravitate to her in their hour of need, but where can she go to find succor? How long will her strength hold out for? This is the kind of book that reminds you that with God all things really are possible. I love how King portrayed the healing of a fractured community. A lovely example of Christianity at work.
