Will Love Be Enough to Fix What Tragedy Threatens?
Gregarious Rose Lehman, who's always the life of the Amish youth singings, is determined to marry the bishop's son, Reuben Byler--until the handsome Army buddy of her future brother-in-law shows up in Lancaster County. In comparison to Trevor, Reuben seems downright boring. Trevor shares Rose's sense of fun and adventure, and her easygoing disposition.
When her sister Lila is injured in a devastating accident, Rose finds herself with more freedom than she's ever experienced in her life. Only Reuben seems to notice, but he never voices his concerns. Part of her relishes the freedom she's found with Trevor, but the other part wishes Reuben would finally express his love and "fight" for her. Have her choices ruined her best chance at love, or is there another path to happiness she just hasn't seen yet?
"The characters are true to life and the events unfold naturally. Gould once again writes a meaningful story that readers will love."

"The narrative flows beautifully through the differing narrations of Rose, Lila, Reuben, and Zane, Lila's intended. Each voice is well defined and brings a balanced perspective to a complex story that digs deeply into Amish culture and shatters some preconceived notions about Amish interactions with their non-Amish neighbors. Gould evokes true emotion as she examines contemporary situations through a critical, yet loving, lens."
