Brunstetter continues to delight readers with authentic characters that quickly pull you in. A few of the secondary storylines could have been a bit more developed, but this is still a charming read.
Titus Fisher has made a number of unsatisfactory choices. Hoping to make a fresh start and forget his first love, Phoebe, he accepts a carpentry job in Kentucky. Phoebe believes her place is in the Englisch world and moves to California. She is not interested in being baptized into the Amish community. In Kentucky, Titus meets Suzanne Yoder. While there is a slight physical resemblance to Phoebe, Suzanne could not be more different. Suzanne does not possess a gift for cooking and is sure that no man would be interested in her. Will Titus’ fresh start include Suzanne or will he return to Phoebe? (BARBOUR, Apr., 384 pp., $14.99)
