Marie Quinn and her daughter have just learned Beth is to receive all of Aunt Lisbeth’s worldly goods. There is a condition, Beth has to live in Lisbeth’s house for three months, if she does not meet the terms of the will, everything will go to Marie’s dad and his sister. That is the last thing they both want to happen. Beth convinces Marie to go back with her to Sommerfeld even though Marie’s dad had disowned her when she left and moved away from the Mennonite way of life. She has not spoken to him ever since. She did however keep in contact with Aunt Lisbeth throughout the years. Can Marie and her father let bygones be bygones and start fresh? Only time will tell if they are able to forgive one another.
Henry Braun is about the only person who is happy Marie is back. He has never forgotten his first true love. He is hoping he and Marie can have a future together despite the fact she has been living outside their faith ever since she left Sommerfeld. His faith and patience have kept him going ever since; he knows he can wait a while longer.
Kim Vogel Sawyer knows her stuff. Her wonderful writing style respects the Mennonite way of life without being overdone. Highly recommended.
