Alexa Zimmerman’s bed-and-breakfast is now open in her grandmother’s farmhouse. With business slow, she accepts a long-term stay from a city reporter, Briley, who is there to unearth the dirt on the Mennonite way of life. Although courteous, Briley remains on continual alert for a juicy story. Alexa, who was introduced in a prior story (When Mercy Rains), has such a story. The other key players for this story are Anna-Grace and Stephen who are published to be married soon. They are leaving their family homes to move to Arborville and take over a family homestead that Stephen has inherited. This young couple, too, struggles with finding their way into adulthood and making known their dreams to one another. Readers will enjoy the believeable characters from this contemporary novel.
Thanks to Waterbrook Press for providing me an advance copy to read and review in my own words.
