Mahlon and Miriam Eaby need help. Injured in a buggy accident and unable to manage their Pennsylvania farm, Mahlon sends word to Iowa for a distant cousin to come and assist with his horses, and Miriam hires a young local woman to care for the house and children. Little do they know that as a result of their misfortune, four lives are about to be changed forever . . . 

Aaron Ropp, Mahlon's Iowa Amish relative, and medical resident Trent Ingleston met by chance, but they're bound together by a common experience: neither feels able to live up to his father's rigid expectations. Both men need time to make decisions about their futures, and the town of Honey Brook is the perfect place to stay for a while and regroup. It's a surprise to each of them when their hearts are captured by two kind and beautiful women. But is now the right time for either man to make a permanent decision about anything, especially love?

Aubrey Green, a traveling physical therapist, is perfectly comfortable treating patients on an Amish farm. Her mother was raised in Honey Brook, but left the Amish prior to her baptism and married an Englischer. Aubrey can speak German and still has close ties to the Amish side of her family. So when she meets Aaron, it's easy enough to fall into a comfortable friendship with the Amish man while she helps Mahlon and Miriam recover. The one thing she isn't planning to fall into is another relationship. She's been burned by a con man who stole her heart then stole her money. She knows Aaron's off-limits to her anyway. He's Amish, and she would never ask him to renounce his beliefs for her.

Sally Hoffman, the oldest of nine, knows a thing or two about caring for children. She's the perfect choice to take charge of the Eabys' household while Miriam heals. But when Trent, a handsome English doctor, visits the farm, Sally's vision of her future suddenly changes and she imagines a different life. Could she give up the community that provides the foundation for her life for a man who can never completely share her faith? When the English and Amish worlds collide, only love can pick up the pieces.

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?
