Lizzie at seventeen, instantly became the mother of seven children when she married widower, Abraham Fisher. She manages the house and children, despite a bad hip, but she wasn't prepared for the death of her husband two years later, leaving her a widow at nineteen.
She doesn't know much about her late husband's family, as she has never met them, and she doesn't know if the address she has is correct, so she is surprised when Zack Fisher shows up.
Zack is surprised by how young and pretty his late brother's widow is, as well as how determined. So he decides not to do anything hasty and brings back his sister to help them out.
Will Lizzie be able to care for her family, and perhaps find a second chance at love?
I really liked Lizzie from the start, she loves all of the children as her own, and even though the older ones still don't always accept her, the younger ones adore her.
I really liked how Esther and Zack helped Lizzie out, and got a chance to know Lizzie and see how she cares for the children. Zack especially finds ways to bond with the children, by finding them small jobs, and he is impressed by how hard Lizzie works. He doesn't judge her because of her weak hip, he only worries about the pain, and works to lighten her burden.
I just loved how open and welcoming Abraham's family was towards Lizzie, with an engaging storyline, and great side characters, this is a great read that you won't want to miss!
