about the book

Two worlds collide when true love enters an Old Order Amish community. Can this young woman go against tradition and find happiness in forbidden love?

Allie Mast struggles to fit into her new community. Determined to prove her family wrong, she can't help but notice how her Mennonite background and Reuben's Amish roots are causing tension between their two families. Every family has hurts and deep wounds, but the constant conflict pushes her to a place where she will do anything to get what she wants.

Reuben Raber has no desire to take over Raber Farms & Produce. When his overbearing mother, Saloma, is set to ruin any hopes of him making a life with Allie, his faith is tested beyond measure, and he experiences a crisis of conviction.

Can this determined couple find the courage to step out in faith and pursue peace and healing even when persecuted for their unconventional union?

“Allie, have you seen Mrs. Raber’s wallet?”

There it was again; a daunting look in Saloma’s eyes left Allie on edge as she moved toward the counter. As she moved things around and looked around the floor, she replied, “I haven’t seen it. Are you sure you didn’t leave it at the bank?”

Looking at her mockingly, Saloma said. “I’m not senile! I tell you it was in my purse when I arrived.”

With a sudden urge to defend herself, she exclaimed. “Well, I didn’t touch it.”

Her glaring eyes slid and landed on Allie’s bag, pointing with an accusing finger. “There. Check her bag. I bet she put it in there.”

Allie reached for her bag and held it out. “Check it. I have nothing to hide.”

With a look of apology, her uncle took the canvas tote. “This is ridiculous, Saloma. Allie would never…” His words stopped midair as he retrieved the black leather wallet from the top of Allie’s bag.

“See. I told you it was her. You can bet I’ll not let this pass. I’ll be telling all my friends to shop elsewhere. If your employees can’t be trusted, we have no business shopping here.”

His glance grew sharper, and he quickly averted his scornful eyes and pleaded with Mrs. Raber. “Now, don’t do anything hasty. I’ll take care of this problem immediately; you can be sure of that. I’ll not tolerate such behavior from my employees.”

Abruptly, a wave of nausea encased Allie. It was like she was in a dream. Unable to form words, she could only stand by and watch the woman manipulate her uncle into believing the unspeakable. As Mrs. Raber turned to leave, a dangerous smile tipped her face. At that moment, Allie knew there was little hope she would ever have a future in Willow Springs or with Reuben Raber.
