2011 (releasing in April)
Reviewed by Cindy Loven
Becky Troyer is sure that she will never find love or be anyone's frau, ever. Branded as used goods, after an incident during her rumspringa leaves her pregnant, and the Englischer who did saying it is not his baby and spreading horrible rumors about her. When a distant relative arrives from Pennsylvania to help out around their home, Becky finds that the attraction to Jacob Miller is distracting.
When Jacob tells Becky he has a girl in Pennsylvania that he wants to marry, Becky tries desperately to distance herself from him, but it isn't working. In fact it seems that the more she tries to avoid him, the more he seeks her out. It almost feels like he is torturing her with the attention he is paying to her. Jacob does not mean to cause her embarrassment or to torture her with unwanted attention, he just wants to see Becky smile, and to know she is happy. Will Jacob return to Pennsylvania to marry Susie, the girl his father seems determined to seperate him from, or will Becky claim his heart and keep him in Seymour Missouri?
