Back cover description
It’s been seven years since her husband died, but Helen Crouch is doing just fine. She’s selling her jams and canned goods at the bakery and making a tidy living. But her whole world goes topsy-turvy when a new family moves to town. Gabriel Gless has brought his children to Bliss Creek to escape the worldly influences in Indiana. Helen and Gabriel have so much in common–the loss of their beloved spouses, the experience of raising their families alone, their rock-solid faith–so why can’t they seem to speak without arguing?
And that’s not all that’s going on in Bliss Creek this summer. In the middle of a punishing drought, the community is faced with the decision to uproot their families and establish a new settlement. As families struggle to say goodbye, each one must find the faith to follow the Lord’s direction.
I’m not a huge fan of Amish fiction and I warned Kelly of this when I offered to read it, but I think anyone who enjoys Amish fiction will thoroughly enjoy this book. The characters are engaging and distinct and the story line is well thought out. This is the third book in the series, but easily stands alone. I received a copy of this book book for the purpose of reviewing. I was not required to give a positive review.
