FAMILY BLESSINGS (4) by Anna Schmidt: Florida, 1932: Pleasant Obermeier has her hands full, working in the family’s bakery, raising her four stepchildren and taking care of her late husband’s farm. She’s happy in spite of all the hard work; it keeps her hands and mind busy so that there’s no time to dwell on what could have been. When newcomer Jeremiah Troyer approaches Pleasant about creating a recipe for the cones he’ll use in his ice cream shop, she should say no -- but can’t. As they spend time together, they realize their deep feelings for each other, but neither one is willing to leap into marriage for reasons they keep from one another. A sweet story with an extra-special heroine, happy in her work and always selflessly helping others.
