Dunking a tea bag into a mug, Rebecca blinked. "My gosh, I haven’t seen you in that dress in ages, Gail. You hardly ever wear it."

More interested in food than fashion, Amity hovered near the stove. "Something smells wonderful."

"Bread pudding." Gail slid a pair of mitts onto her hands and opened the oven to retrieve the pan. The pudding had set, perfectly browned. She placed it on the counter to cool.

Amity bent over the pan. "You rarely make this."

"I know why," Rebecca said behind a knowing grin. "It is Levi’s favorite, and we all know the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach."

Amity rolled her eyes. "Ach, now I remember the torch you carried for that boy."

Cheeks going hot, Gail dipped her head. When they were younger, her sisters had teased her unmercifully over her infatuation for Levi. It didn’t help that one of them had found a page that once dropped from her school notebook, the one on which she'd written "Mrs. Levi Wyse" and "Gail Wyse" in her neat, angular schoolgirl script.

"That was ages ago. I was just a child," she countered. "We all had our silly moments then."

"If he asked you now, I bet you would marry him," Florene teased.

"Oh, don’t be foolish!" Gail exclaimed.


Pamela Desmond Wright grew up in a small, dusty Texas town. Like the Amish, Pamela is a fan of the simple life. Her childhood includes memories of the olden days; old-fashioned oil lamps, cooking over an authentic wood-burning stove and making popcorn over a crackling fire at her grandparent’s cabin. She also loves needlepoint and has dozens of projects to work on! Someday, she hopes to move into van life, living on the road as a traveling writer.
