When his brother offers pretty Elizabeth Nolt a job taking care of the house and cooking for the family, Randall is furious---and guilty about the way he once broke Elizabeth's heart. But when he learns that Elizabeth and her grandmother are struggling to make ends meet, he knows the offer, no matter how painful, is the right thing for everyone.
Elizabeth wants to refuse---to stay far away from the man who hurt her---but she needs the money. Though she vows to protect her heart, spending time in the Beiler household makes Elizabeth realize that, while she's older and wiser, her love for Randall still burns strong.
Randal, too, seems to want something more. But does he want Elizabeth because he truly loves her---or because he needs a housekeeper? If Randall sincerely wants something more, he must find a way to show Elizabeth---or risk losing his chance at love forever.
I enjoyed returning to Sugarcreek and the sweet Amish community in this book! Unlike some Amish fiction, I feel like this series has a lot more going on, with the introduction of new characters and the continuation of other stories from previous books. I also appreciate that, while there is a lot going on, it isn`t sensationalized. This is a lovely story and a wonderful addition to the series!
