It's been seven years since Rose Ebersol left her Amish home, and the fast-paced Englisch life she thought she wanted has created a void in her heart. When she receives a plea from her sister to come home and help care for their ill Daed, Rose leaves the city and returns to her roots. She fully expects her father to be angry with her, but the unexpected bitterness of Jonathan, her former best friend, leaves her hurt and confused.

Jonathan Fisher never forgot Rose or the fact that she was supposed to marry his younger brother. Her return rattles the widower, but now he is raising three young children on his own, running a dairy farm, and building an organic gardening business. He doesn't have time to reconcile the past.

Not wanting to leave until her father has recovered, Rose offers to ease some of Jonathan's burden, and hidden feelings from the past soon begin to resurface. 
Jonathan's love for Rose is in the past, but it's hard to forget when she so easily slips into the role of caregiver for his children. Though she'd made the choice to leave the community, Jonathan finds it nearly impossible not to get reattached to this woman who has always held his heart.

Spending so much time with Jonathan's family and learning how to live a plain life again stirs a longing in Rose she didn't anticipate. Everything she ever wanted is right in front of her. But can she gain the forgiveness -- and the courage -- she needs to return home for good?

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?
