Grace’s beauty almost cost her everything. This new start is all she has left.
When Grace Beiler was only a girl, she was married off to an older Amish man in order to save her family’s farm. Years later, she finds herself newly widowed and a mother to a young son. She has finally fled her sad past and plans to settle into a quiet life in Pennsylvania.
As soon as she arrives, she captures the attention of Seth Wyse, the most eligible bachelor in Pine Creek. Seth is candid about his feelings for her, and for her son Abel, but Grace is determined to protect her heart. Her determination falters when her brother-in-law reveals the troubling contents of her late husband’s will.
Seth offers Grace his hand in marriage, and thus a means of escape. But despite his having saved her from another loveless marriage, Grace is slow to trust her new husband. And as the months wear on, Seth wonders if he has made a mistake. But God is quietly at work in their hearts, and Seth and Grace soon discover that threads of grace bind them together in a tapestry rich in hope and love.
What I Thought:
I enjoyed reading the story of Grace and her son Abel who is autistic. Grace was married off to save her family farm to a much older man. He was not good to her, so when he passes, she moves to a small Pennsylvania town. When her widow’s brother shows up trying to force Grace to marry him, her neighbor Seth, offers to marry her. This is a story of a marriage of convenience turning into a story of love. It was well written and the author did a very good job making your help melt over Abel. The plot was good, but the conflict between the two men in the story ended kind of weirdly. Overall this was a good read.
I received a complimentary copy of this book.
