Kathleen Fuller has brought a beautiful story of love, set in Amish country in Middlefield Ohio. Centered around the Byler Family, specifically Moriah Byler, this book brings us a story of love, heartbreak and triumph over difficult circumstances.

Moriah Byler is getting married as the book opens, and we share in her wedding day, along with her excitement and love for her new husband Levi. However soon it seems things are not going “happy ever after” for Moriah and Levi. She had a wonderful planned meal for their four month anniversary, prepared it and waited for Levi to come home, only to be awakened by her brother in law Gabe, with a note from Levi. He was leaving the Amish faith. He was leaving her, and the baby, even though she hadn't had a chance to tell him about the baby yet. Moriah's world came crashing down, with a single heartbreaking note.

Rejoining her family, Moriah tries hard to not become bitter. She knows that she must pray for Levi.
A horrible accident brings Levi back to her, only to snatch him away in death. A young widow now, with a baby on the way. It is more than Moriah can stand, she shuts out her friends, family and God. Follow along to see if Moriah, can come to terms with her new life? Will she block God out forever? Will Gabe be a part of her life?

This wonderfully written story will keep your attention, you will not want to put it down. Included at the end of the book is a reading group guide. 288 pages $14.99 US
