Will Leah Fisher find love because of a buggy accident?

Could love soften Leah's heart so that she is able to see her answered prayers in Naomi Yoder or will she drive a wedge between her father and the only woman he has shown interest in since Elisabeth Fisher's death?

Leah Fisher lost her mother ten years ago. She is rapidly approaching womanhood and the lack is becoming more difficult every day.

Will she be able to recognize love when it's right in front of her?

Could love be the key to Leah opening her heart, making room for the woman her father intends to marry... or will she stubbornly cling to the memory of her own mother?

Will Leah be able to let go of her own ideas and realize that God truly does know best for her or will she allow love to slip through her fingers, destroying Samuel Fisher and Naomi Yoder's happiness at the same time?

My thoughts:  I was beyond excited when Ms. Miller asked if I'd be an influencer for her debut Amish story, and I was not disappointed.  The characters are realistic, the struggles believable, and the story is at times heart-wrenching, and at times it makes you want to cheer. 

Rachel Miller has penned an Amish tale guaranteed to captivate the reader. Ms. Miller writes of a grieving Amish widower and his young daughter — who struggle to find their footing. The story is also rich with hope of new life and new love. A well-written story for fans who can't get enough bonnet fiction. 

I know you'll love this story, part romance, part coming of age, and part womens fiction, no matter which genre is your favorite.
