With nowhere to turn, penniless widow Grace Yoder travels with her young son to the Amish community of Seven Poplars. She hopes to reunite with the Plain father she never knew—and become part of the community. Though her father is deceased, his new family still welcomes her. Grace is overcome with gratitude. But when handsome family friend and Mennonite John Hartman offers her a job in his veterinarian office, Grace discovers a beautiful bridge between the two worlds. And prays John will ask her to stay by his side.
Touching and poignant. You'd have to be made of stone not to be moved by Grace's story.She's such an intriguing mixture of contradictions. Drawn to 'wordly' things unacceptable to the Amish way of life, she still stubbornly clings to her desire to become part of the community. She's a conundrum that John is all too eager to puzzle out and Grace is sometimes tempted to let him. This alluring dance draws the romance to a heartwarming conclusion. Lovely holiday read.
