A bend in the road can be daunting… or the beginning of everything.
Aaron Troyer simply wants to work in Indiana his ‘dat’ and ‘grossdaddi’ before him, but instead he finds himself traveling to Wisconsin to oversee an uncle’s small group of Plain cabins nestled along the banks of Pebble Creek. That also means he must work with the cabin’s lovely but stubborn housekeeper, Lydia Fisher.
Lydia is the most outspoken Amish woman Aaron has ever met, and she has strong opinions about how the guest cabins are to be run. She also desperately needs her job, and to keep it she must temper her reaction to her new employer. Though sparks fly at first, when danger unexpectedly overtakes than, nothing is more important to Aaron than making sure Lydia is safe.
Together they work to make the vacation property profitable, but can they find out who is causing trouble before more damage is done? And can Lydia guard her heart, knowing Aaron is just biding his time before he can return home to his farm? Or is her dream of a home of her own more than just a wish and a prayer?
