Summary
  • "Marie Hartman never thought she'd move back to Walnut Creek but, still reeling from a friend's heartbreaking passing, she's desperate for the comforts of home. And she's determined to surround herself with people who care more about her heart than her striking looks. Vowing to reconnect with her childhood best friends and find a larger meaning in life, she's also decided it's finally time to summon the courage to see if there's something more between her and longtime friend John Byler than just companionship. Marie's homecoming forces John to reassess his life and his hopes for the future. Though he still lives at home with the rest of his old order Amish family, lately he's been feeling that God intends for him to go another direction. But does He really want John to go against his faith and finally do something about his longtime crush on Marie? With her signature "taut writing" (RT Book Reviews), Shelley Shepard Gray delivers a lyrical and heartfelt tale of friendship and forgiveness."--
  • When word got out that Andy Warner had committed suicide, everyone in Walnut Creek, Ohio, was shocked. For seven men and women-- some Amish, some Mennonite, and some English-- each of whom had once counted his or herself as one of Andy's best friends, it had been extremely painful. They'd drifted apart, but thought their bond was still strong. Grieving, Marie Hartman returns to Walnut Creek seeking comfort-- and vowing to reconnect with childhood friends. Especially John Byler. But will John go against his faith for her? -- adapted from publisher info
