Mercy Bamberger has a dream of starting a camp for city children so that they can experience farm life. When her grandfather Rudy dies she assumes that she will get his place and starts working to fix it up.
Jeremiah Stolzfus wants to move to a new Amish Community, he buys a farm sight unseen and is surprised to find a woman working the property. He discovers that the man he bought it from has died, and the sale had not been finalized so he and Mercy agree to a compromise while everything gets sorted out, and Mercy and her daughter, Sunni can stay for the time being.
I like how the situation brings Mercy and Jeremiah together, because the legal ramifications are complex, it gives them plenty of time to get to know each other. And they work together to restore the farm.
Mercy takes in another foster child, a young boy named Parker, who is hurt and angry. But Mercy still treats him with kindness and understanding, I like how Jeremiah is able to help Parker as well, and gives him jobs to do to help out.
Sunni is like her name, bright, independent, and adventurous, and she doesn't let obstacles get in her way.
I love how a mistake and unfortunate circumstances bring this family together. Mercy and Jeremiah are strong in their faith and do their best to be good examples for the young ones. A sweet story of family and love.
