Summary

Abigail Schrock knows God can make all things new, but does that include her broken heart?

It seems as if everyone is falling in love in Birch Creek, including Abigail Schrock. But when heartbreak descends on her already fragile world, she can't help but feel that if she'd only been a little prettier, she could be on her way down the aisle. To make matters worse, Abigail's two sisters have found love, and all Abigail can seem to find is the chocolate she has stashed away in the pantry.

Asa Bontrager has never had trouble with the ladies in his Amish community--his good looks have always gotten him far. Which is why he's baffled by the call he's received from God to pursue Abigail, a woman who seems determined to turn him away.

Can Abigail find the peace and joy she so desperately desires? Will she allow herself to stop running and melt into the embrace of unforeseen comfort? If she does, she may discover a love powerful enough to restore her hope in a promising future.

Library Journal Review

In love, timing is everything. That's what Asa Bontrager believes when his repeated attempts to woo Abigail Schrock are rebuffed. Although she is wistful and somewhat self-pitying when her friends and siblings are marrying in rapid succession, Abigail is too filled with grief to allow herself to love anyone. Even though God has told Asa to pursue Abigail, Asa questions His purpose. Readers of this heartwarming romance will empathize with Abigail's struggles and feel inspired by the underlying theme of the role of faith and prayer in dealing with everyday crises. VERDICT Followers of this series (A Reluctant Bride; An Unbroken Heart) will recognize threads of other stories woven into this latest installment. A solid choice for readers who appreciate -Beverly Lewis, Wanda Brunstetter, and Vannetta Chapman. © Copyright 2016. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
