series: Deacon's Family, The
Every saint has a past. Every sinner has a future.
Luke Schrock is a new and improved man after a stint in rehab, though everyone in Stoney Ridge only remembers the old Luke. They might have forgiven him, but nobody trusts him. He has been allowed to live at Windmill Farm under two conditions. First, he must make a sincere apology to each person he's hurt. Second, he must ask each victim of mischief to describe the damage he caused.
Simple, Luke thinks. Offering apologies is easy. But discovering the lasting effects his careless actions have caused isn't so simple. It's gut-wrenching.
And his list keeps growing. Izzy Miller, beautiful and frustratingly aloof, also boards at Windmill Farm, and Luke's clumsy efforts to befriend her only insult and annoy her. Eager to impress, Luke sets out to prove himself to her by locating her mother. When he does, her identity sends shock waves through Stoney Ridge.

"Luke Schrock has arrived at Windmill Farms because he has nowhere else to go. He's dispirited, broke, but not quite ready to give up. And yet he couldn't be more ill-prepared for the girl he finds at this Amish farm. A funny, heartwarming story of friendship, love, and the possibility of happily ever after."
Amy Clipston, bestselling author of Seat by the Hearth
"There's just something unique and fresh about every Suzanne Woods Fisher book. Maybe it's the characters that are both flawed and endearing. Maybe it's the unexpected bursts of humor that make me smile just as I start to tear up. Whatever the reason, I'm a fan. Mending Fences features Luke Schrock, an Amish hero like no other. It's a wonderful contemporary Amish romance full of hope, love, and fresh starts. It's also, well, it's also just a really good book."
Shelley Shepard Gray, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author
