Tobias Rediger's world has been devastated by tragedy. Five years ago, a tornado claimed the lives of his father, brothers, and sisters–along with the one woman he had promised to love forever. Now he cares for his permanently injured mother and works long hours as a farrier, traveling the Pennsylvania countryside to tend to his neighbors' horses. It's a busy existence, if not a satisfying one, but hard labor keeps the horrifying memories at bay. When he stops to help an unconscious woman along the side of the road one day, Tobias somehow knows that the course of his life is about to be altered ... and just like the storm, he's powerless to stop it.

The young woman Tobias found can't remember anything, including her own name. The kind, handsome Amish man who brought her home to be cared for by his dear mother calls her Daisy, because she was clutching a crumpled flower as she lay there in the rain. It's as good a name as any, yet Daisy can't help but wonder if more than a head injury is keeping her memories at bay. Surely she must have friends or family in the Englisch world, but why isn't anyone looking for her? One thing she does know is that with every day that passes, she is drawing closer to Tobias. But even as she slowly regains bits and pieces of her past, she finds she's losing a little more of her heart.

Daisy and Tobias both know that, although it will inevitably drive them apart, they must find out where she came from and who she is. Their search will force them each to confront their buried pain–yet it might also show them who they can become ... together.

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?
