Twenty-year-old Greta Miller’s daed has been injured in a
farming accident during the summer. The supportive Amish
community tries to help out, but Greta and her sister must work
outside the home to make ends meet, and so Greta rents a booth
at the farmers’ market. Because Greta is still in her rumspringa
and free to explore the world, her family selects her to sell her
homemade jams, jellies, and preserves to Englischers.
Josh Yoder wants to court Greta, but years ago, he made the
mistake of rejecting her during a seemingly innocent game—
which resulted in him leaving the Amish. Three years later, he’s
back, but Greta wants nothing to do with him. Josh struggles to
fit in and rebuild relationships he destroyed. Knowing Greta’s
family needs help, he steps in, hoping to win her back. When
Greta admires one of his birdhouses, he gives it to her, hoping
that it will open the door to more.
But as their friendship begins to grow, a series of unfortunate
events pull Greta away from the Amish, leaving her rejected by
those she loves. Will Greta get beyond her family’s distrust and
return home? Will she prove her innocence? Or will she remain
outside her Amish community?
God always answers prayer -- yes, no, or wait. And He will answer them in the manner He deems best.
Why the author wrote this book:
Josh was a secondary character in three of my other books and I wanted to know his story
