Elsie Keim doesn't want to be left behind. Her twin sister, Viola, and her older brother, Roman, have both found love and are building lives of their own. But Elsie? She's still stuck at home, being treated like a child. No one seems to consider her a capable woman-all they see are the thick lenses of her glasses, constant reminders that Elsie suffers from keratoconus and is slowly going blind.
Elsie knows there's much more to her than her disease. That's why when a new neighbor, Landon Troyer, shows some interest in her, she doesn't want anything to scare him away . . . even if it means keeping her condition a secret.
Landon is ready to start a new life and feels like Elsie may just be the right woman to start it with. But when Roman steps in and shares the truth about Elsie's illness, Landon is floored. His job is demanding and takes him away from home, sometimes for days at a time. How could he keep up with his responsibilities and take care of Elsie?

I thought that this was the best book in this series. I really enjoyed it. I especially liked how strong and independent Elsie was, or wanted to be. Because of her eyesight, her family tried to shelter her and protect her. She wanted to live her life just like her siblings. Finally, the family comes to realize that Elsie needs to make her own decisions, especially when Landon wants to court her. But when Elsie's doctor gives her some options, will she push everyone away with her decision. Also, Pappi Aaron and Mammi Lovina head to Pennsylvania to tie up some loose ends in their life. Will they find the peace they have sought. Classic Shelley Shepard Gray. She writes in a way that makes you feel that you know the characters and you feel their pain. Great job.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
