Anna Petersheim is doing the best she can to keep her head above water. Widowed a year ago, and with her father-in-law recently deceased, Anna is employed as a housekeeper for a kindly English couple by day, and at night makes quilts and wall hangings to sell in a local shop. No matter how hard she works, though, she makes barely enough to support herself, her daughter, and her mother-in-law. So when she's injured in an accident, her little family is perilously close to ruin.

CIA agent Noah Petersheim left Montana and his Amish heritage behind him years ago. He's been bouncing from assignment to assignment, never putting down roots anywhere, never feeling like he belonged. Even when his brother died, he made an appearance and left town as fast as he could. But after the sudden death of his father, he knows he must return to make sure his mother and his brother's widow and child are taken care of. And that means finally facing the trauma and guilt that made it impossible for him to stay in the first place.

But before Noah can even think about making peace with himself, let alone ask forgiveness from the community he wronged, he realizes that there may be a connection between his brother's and father's deaths and Anna's accident. As he digs deeper, he finds that something dark hides under the surface of the little town of Rexford, and that his family is in danger because of it. To make matters worse, he's falling for his brother's widow, and that's a complication he doesn't need if he's to keep them all safe.

Meanwhile, Anna is fighting feelings of her own. She knows nothing can come of her growing love for Noah. But what's worse is that she sees how attached her daughter has become to him. It's only a matter of time before he returns to his life in the English world, and she fears that when he goes, he'll be taking a piece of more than one heart with him.

Uncovering the truth about the past and the present will either set Noah and Anna free to love each other, or drive them apart forever. But if they work together, family, faith, and forgiveness might just save the day . . .

The Characters

Being the eldest child often means having more responsibility. With four younger siblings, Sarah Beth has a firm understanding of the weight she must bear.

After the passing of her Grossmammi -- a loss almost as devastating as the one the King children endured 12 years earlier when both of their parents were killed in a harvesting accident -- Sarah Beth, 24, is left to look after her special needs sister, Cora, 17, and only brother, Toby, 14. As for her 12-year-old twin sisters, Lovina and Luann, other family members felt it would be best for the girls to live with relatives in another church district, decimating the King family once again.

Family is everything to Sarah Beth! And she is determined to get hers back together ... even if that means putting off her thoughts of courtship and starting a family of her own. But why does her heart beat wildly when she meets her handsome new neighbor, Elias Stutzman? Is she drawn to the allure of his deep blue eyes ... or maybe it is the secrets they are hiding?

Life has been anything but easy for Elias ... abandoned by his Mamm who jumped the fence to Englisch life when he was just a kid ... passed along from one distant relative to another ... running with the wrong group of "friends" who always kept him on the outer edge of their circle.

Now, at 29 years old, Elias longs to be accepted for the hardworking man he is today and leave his past behind him. Hickory Meadows, known for its welcoming folks and strong sense of community, could give him the home he has always dreamed of having -- and possibly a family of his own.

But the shocking damage done to his buggy shop soon after his arrival makes it very clear that he is not welcome. Elias knows only a few people, so who would try to run him out of the church district? Maybe it was just a bunch of bored kids. Perhaps he pushed Sara Beth, his attractive new neighbor with the feisty spirit, a little too far. Or has someone from Elias's past discovered his new life?
