really liked it

What a wonderful story of a three young Amish women whose parents have died and they were keeping the home although it has been passed down to the youngest brother who now have decided to move with his family into this house. The downside is there is not enough room for the three sisters to remain in the home. They don't have a lot of options if they don't marry someone who will provide a home for them although one has been promised that she (don't know which one yet) could stay and become a mother's helper for his children. The other two if they were not married within the year would be relocated to another state to live with other relatives.

The middle daughter Eva has been making a contribution to the family by making sweets for the neighborhood and was doing a great business although this was considered nothing by her brother. The oldest sister was not one who welcomed change. into this their youngest sister after the meeting left home and no one knew where she was only she had left a note for her middle sister. This vanishing brought heartache to the sisters especially Eva. The brother agreed to look for her after the Bishop suggested he be found.

into this bag of worms came a young Amish buggy maker from Ohio, Jed was coming to learn additional things about buggy making from one of his relatives. While on the train his found a book and it had a picture of a young Amish woman and the book had several writing that spoke to the heart of the writer. While there he went to an auction and one of the little Amish boys was lost and he was walking around with him when who should into his view but Eva who he though was the person in the picture. The clicked and as he was leaving to return home an incident happened which changed the direction of their relationship. Would his attempt to find the missing sister help with getting back together with Eva and if so would she forgive his image of her. Well it will consider reading this story, and perhaps like myself just couldn't put it down.

I have enjoyed reading Beverly Lewis' books but this one was great.
