A PROMISE OF HOPE
Authentic characters, delectable recipes and faith abound in Clipston's second Kauffman Amish Bakery story. While betrayals and regaining trust in those closest to you are central themes, the importance of family is also evident.
After her husband Peter dies in a fire, Sarah Troyer must raise their infant twins alone. Her family believes she will marry again and Norman Zook, a widowed father, seems an obvious choice. Then Peter's brother Luke, a man she never knew existed, shows up and tells her about another side to Peter. Sarah is forced to question everything she believed to be true.
