Hannah King comes back to live with her parents after her husband was killed in a tragic accident that also left her 4 year-old son, Matthew, in a wheelchair.
Jacob Schrock is a carpenter with a passion for building playhouses for children with special needs. He builds a house for Matthew, who is excited and wants to help, to which Hannah agrees.
I like how Hannah wants her son to do as many things as he can for himself and not feel limited by his chair. She also wants to help her parents keep the farm, which is at risk due to them helping with Matthews bills. She takes initiative and asks for a job helping Jacob with his accounting.
Jacob is great with Matthew, and enjoys Hannah's company. He makes an effort to talk to Hannah everyday, and finds himself looking forward to seeing her. He has his literal scars, and doesn't think that he has a chance for a relationship.
I like the interaction between Hannah and Jacob, I loved Jacob's heart for disabled children and how he helps connect Matthew with other disabled children Amish and English alike. Hannah is a great mother, she struggles with being over protective, but she wants to empower her son. Great dialog, and believable characters. Enjoyable read!
