Book Description:
When a business offer turns into something more personal, Amelia is torn between what logic tells her is right, and the desire of her heart.
A widow with two small children, Amelia Beiler is struggling to make ends meet. She is running her late husband's business, but it's not what she was raised to do, which is run a home. When she gets an offer for the business from Eli Fischer, she's only too relieved to consider it-especially when it looks like Eli's interest might include more than just the shop. But when she begins to experience strange physical symptoms and is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, it's difficult not to question God's will. If she pursues the treatment she believes in, she risks going under the bann. But how can she allow Eli to court her when she can't promise him a future?

Includes instructions to make the quilt block featured in the novel.

My Thoughts: Amelia is a widow with two small boys, running her late husband's pallet business. When she begins having medical issues that not only throw her for a loop, the treatments go against her religious leaders. If that wasn't enough for her, Eli the man who is running the pallet shop is interested in her, but she doesn't want to be a burden to him. This is the first book in a trilogy and I was quite taken with it. I found myself quite annoyed with the religious leaders. I highly recommend this one!
