Summary

When Joel and Shani Beck arrive at their new home on Juneberry Lane in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, they're looking for peace. Joel's recently returned from Iraq and is recuperating, and Shani is just happy to have her family back together. They can't imagine any trouble with their Amish neighbors, the Lehmans, but things get off to a rocky start when their son accidently hurts Simon, one of the Lehman boys.

Timothy Lehman, a widower, is the family patriarch and demands the Beck boy work in Simon's place. Tensions escalate, but Shani can't help but be drawn to Eve Lehman, Timothy's sister, who runs the household. The two begin to form a strong friendship forged on faith and family, and things seem like they've quieted down - until Joel's single and handsome army friend, Charlie, catches Eve's eye. Suddenly life for both families becomes more complicated than any of them could have ever imagined.

The Most Awesome Book

This is a book everyone should listen to. It is realistic, and makes you think about situations in life. If I could give it a 10 star rating I would. Stina Nielsen is a reader that makes you feel that you are living the story.

Very Endearing

I enjoyed this book, new author for me, she does a great job at the story line, makes you want another book with the same characters to find out the rest of the story.

Good but predictable

For a change this was an Amish story with English characters in the story stat had an active roll. The familiar characters of a Bishop, a nasty brother, the sad Amish girl were all there. But, SURPRISE....the sad Amish girl actually moved on . That,only in my opinion, saved the story.

Great story!

This was a great story of learning to love when life gets tough. Grace and redemption flow from its pages as you grow to love both an Amish and English family who struggle with real life issues and ask real questions and start healing from deep wounds.
