This Christmas, experience learning to trust alongside the Plain folk of Apple Ridge, Pennsylvania in this heart-warming tale of second chances.

Sadie enjoys her freedom away from home and her mission trips to Peru, but after four years, her Old Order Amish family insists it’s time to come home and settle down. Levi, a bachelor who distrusts women after a family heartbreak, also has no desire for romance. To keep their families from meddling in their lives, Sadie and Levi devise a plan—but soon discover that the walls around their hearts are breaking down. Can they let go of their prejudices, learn to trust each other, and embrace a future together?

If you've been here a while, you know I have a soft spot for Amish stories. This one has proven to be no exception! I fell in love with Sadie and Levi and their struggles as they each had to come to terms with their past in order to have any sort of future, together or apart. Cindy Woodsmall does a fantastic job of drawing you into the story and before you know it, you're closing the back cover with a small sigh and looking for the next story. In this book, you not only get Sadie and Levi's stories, but if you're familiar with Apple Ridge, you'll recognize other characters and get to see more of their lives, as well. Honestly, I can't find a single thing that I didn't like about this book other than wishing that as soon as I closed that cover, I had others from the series to read next!
