From the back cover: “Katherine Mayfield, the new Mistress of Mayfield Manor, always dreamed of a fancy ‘English’ life. But as the seasons pass, she finds herself grieving the loss of her Amish family and her dearest friend, Mary Stoltzfus. Shunned from the Plain life she once knew, Katherine finds solace in volunteer work with hospice patients—a labor of love she hopes will bring honor to the memory of her birth mother.
“Unknown to Katherine, her long-lost love, Daniel Fisher, is desperate to locate his ‘Sweetheart girl,’ only to be frustrated at nearly every turn. Meanwhile, she delights in the modern world—once forbidden—cherishing the attention of Justin Wirth, her handsome suitor.”
