Tricia Goyer is one of my very favorite authors, and she is gifted by God to write incredibly stories! This Amish Fiction work takes place in Montana, which I thought was unique! Most Amish fiction seem to take place in PA or OH. The beauty of the mountains and the hike that Sarah and her friends go on, just adds so much to the story. Made we want to visit again.
Sarah has kept a wall around her heart since her best friend Patty was killed in a tragic drowning accident, along with the beau Sarah cared for.
Sarah on her hike with her friends gets to know Jathan better and realizes maybe God has a new plan for her, that she can stop living in the past and move on. Jathan's mom runs a bakery, a dream Sarah has, unique in the Amish community for a woman.
