Founded by five enterprising Amish maidels, the new Morningstar Marketplace is a joyoussuccess. What&’s even more remarkable is the gift…the business bestows upon each of these unmarried women—the unexpected blessing of love . . . Leaving Flaud&’s Furniture to teach at the community&’s new school is a joy for Lydianne Christner. Old Order Amish, but new to Morning Star, she&’s grateful that the congregation trusts her with the position—but she panics when handsome Bishop Jeremiah Shetler asks about the life she left behind. If anyone discovers the secret she&’s hiding, she would, quite rightly, be shunned. A widower, Bishop Jeremiah admires young Lydianne&’s youthful energy and skill with the children. He&’s also curious about her past, and the burden he senses on her heart. When his request to court her is refused, he&’s stung, and lonelier than ever. It isn&’t until a crisis prompts a tearful Lydianne to confess to him that Jeremiah is faced with a choice that requires all of his faith—and teaches them both that love and forgiveness go hand in hand. Praise for the novels of Charlotte Hubbard &“Hubbard firmly grounds the storyline in the principle of Amish grace.&”—Publishers Weekly &“Hubbard writes of healing and brave new beginnings from a refreshingly feminist perspective.&”—Booklist Visit us at www.kensingtonbooks.com
