Jah, Lucy thought. Tobe would have known what to say.
"But what would he say to me if he knew the truth?" she murmured into her hands, leaning on the desk.
Alas, that was something she could not afford to find out.
The mistakes of the past haunt Lucy Flaud, now twenty-five and beyond Amish courting age. Instead, Lucy focuses on volunteering in both the Plain and fancy communities of Lancaster County. Yet no matter how hard she strives, she never feels she's doing enough. Then her father strikes up an unexpected friendship with an Englischer in search of a simpler way of life. Lucy forms a connection of her own with the thoughtful young man even as she rejects courtship with her longtime Amish friend. Is it too late to embrace redemption . . . and the power of love?
"Yet another fine example of Lewis' skillful storytelling. Grief, volunteering and atoning for past mistakes are key themes in her latest novel. Lucy is a determined character with a huge heart, making her an enjoyable heroine to root for."
