Brunstetter crafts realistic characters and a storyline that will lift up the reader’s spirit. The Amish deal with the same struggles as the “Englishers,” but they seem to have a sense of inner peace, which is not always evident in the fast-paced, technology-driven English world.
After losing her husband and her job, Lydia King decides to move with her son to Ohio to live with her mother and ailing grandfather. The relationship with her mother is strained, as she treats Lydia like a child and is harsh with her son.
Two bachelors vie for Lydia’s attention. Menno Troyer is looking for a mother to care for his four boisterous sons. Levi Stutzman fears that his family’s propensity for dwarfism would scare away any potential bride. After tragedy strikes, Lydia is forced to question her purpose in life and whether or not happiness can ever be a part of her future. (BARBOUR, Oct., 375 pp., $14.99)
