When tragedy strikes a family in Lancaster County, can two young Amish people find the hope that lies on the other side?

"This story of profound loss and deep friendship will leave readers with the certain knowledge that hope exists and love grows through faith in our God of second chances." --Kelly Irvin, author of the Every Amish Season series

Laura Riehl is no stranger to heartache. Less than a year after her mother's death, Laura finds herself burying another loved one: her best friend, Savilla, who has died after a brief and sudden illness. Laura feels heartbroken and alone, but her pain is nothing compared to that of Allen, the husband Savilla has left behind. He now faces a life so different from the one he imagined--plus a baby to care for on his own.

When Laura offers to help Allen with baby Mollie, he jumps at the opportunity until a permanent solution can be found. She'd do anything to lend a hand to Allen and to honor her best friend's memory. Rudy, Laura's boyfriend, is initially supportive of her plan, but the more time Laura spends with Allen, the more jealous and frustrated Rudy seems to become.

As Laura and Allen face hardships together, their friendship takes a surprising yet comforting turn--and she discovers an attraction she's never felt with Rudy. Would falling for Allen betray the people she cares about most, or would denying those feelings betray her heart? This latest installment in the Amish Homestead series returns us to Lancaster County, home of the beloved Riehls, where a family's strength--and advice from a new friend--may help Laura find God's direction.

This sweet read is the second book in Amy Clipston's Amish Homestead series, but it can also be enjoyed as a standalone novel.

"Readers . . . will appreciate the author's realistic portrayal of coming to terms with loss in order to continue living with hope and happiness." --RT Book Reviews, four stars

Book two in “Am Amish Homestead” series revisits some old friends from book one and tells Laura’s story. It is a story of loss of loved ones and loss of relationship and finding a new normal in the chaos of life. Baby Mollie is such an endearing character that grabs your heart and leaves you in tears. I found it to be somewhat predictable but was still an interesting read and enjoyable. I look forward to book three and spending more time with the Riehl family. I received a complimentary copy from Thomas Nelson & Zondervan Fiction Guild. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.
