The tornado that devastated Kings’ Orchard pushed Rhoda, Samuel,
and Jacob to make a new start in Maine. Are they strong enough to withstand the
challenges of establishing an Amish community—and brave enough to face the
secrets that move with them?
On the eve of their departure to begin a
new Old Order Amish community outside of Unity, Maine, Rhoda Byler is shocked to
discover that choices made by her business partner and friend, Samuel King, have
placed her and her unusual gifts directly into the path of her district’s bishop
and preachers. She is furious with Samuel and is fearful that the Kings will be
influenced by the way her leaders see her, and not what they know to be
true—that Rhoda’s intuition is a gift from God.
Jacob King won’t be
swayed by community speculation. He loves Rhoda, believes in her, and wants to
build a future with her in Maine. But when the ghosts of his past come calling
and require him to fulfill a great debt, can he shake their hold before it
destroys what he has with Rhoda? Samuel has a secret of his own—one he’ll go to
great lengths to keep hidden, even if it means alienating those closest to him.
Throwing himself into rehabilitating the once-abandoned orchard, Samuel turns to
a surprising new ally.
