Candace Beachey doesn't know how to help her father. Since her mother's death, Lemuel refuses to attend church and rarely steps out of his room ... and that leaves Candace not only to run the house and farm, but also to hold down a job in the Englisch world. She's exhausted, worried, and unable to grieve. When a young, handsome carpenter arrives in town, a ray of hope touches her weary soul. The only problem is that he seems to be promised to someone else.

Micah Zehr has been sent to Randolph, New York, with express instructions to find a bride and return to Pennsylvania. His domineering father and the local bishop have someone in mind for him: the bishop's daughter. She's kind and pretty, but Micah doesn't even know her, let alone love her -- and it doesn't take long for him to realize that he never will, now that Candace has taken up residence in his heart.  But even if he could secure his father's blessing, Candace could never leave her community, and Micah can't stay.

Candace is overjoyed when Lemuel improves, thanks to Micah's gentle way of coaxing him out of his deep depression. And when tragedy strikes her family, not once but twice, Candace can't help but rely on Micah's steady presence. Yet it's only a matter of time before Micah will be summoned home. Now that she understands what a true partnership of the mind and heart can be, how can she give him up?

The clock is ticking, and a decision will have to be made. Someone will be disappointed. But with faith and love all things are possible ... even an impossible choice.

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?
