Abstract:
Bess Weaver, twenty and expecting her first child, is in the kitchen making stew for her beloved mann, Caleb, one minute, and the next she's burying him after a tragic accident. Facing life as a young widow, Bess finds comfort only in tending the garden at an Englisch-owned bed and breakfast--even as she doubts that new growth could ever come after such a long winter. Aidan tries to repress his guilt over his best friend Caleb's death and his long-standing feelings for Bess by working harder than ever. But as he spends time with the young son his friend left behind, he seems to be growing closer to the boy's beautiful mother as well. When a close-knit group of widows in her Amish community step in to help Bess find her way back to hope, she begins to wonder if Gott has a future for her after all. Will she ever believe that life can still hold joy and the possibility of love?

Library Journal Review

Happily married, Bess and Caleb Weaver are expecting their first child when Caleb is killed in an accident. Bess gives birth to a son but has trouble recovering after the delivery. Meanwhile, Caleb's best friend Aidan has loved Bess for as long as he can remember and tries to suppress his guilt over Caleb's death and his own romantic feelings for his friend's widow. Bess takes comfort in tending the garden at a B&B but faces criticism from her in-laws, who question her faith and her ability to care for Caleb's son. In this journey of grief and faith, Irvin ("The Amish of Bee County" series) thoughtfully handles the charged issues of mourning, postpartum depression, and survivor guilt. VERDICT A moving and compelling tale about the power of grace and forgiveness that reminds us how we become strongest in our most broken moments. © Copyright 2017.
