Sadie Fischer's father sees her as young and immature, he is determined to marry her off to an older widower, but Sadie is content as the district teacher. She would rather find love on her own terms.
When a storm blows through, damaging the schoolhouse, Levi Byler agrees to help with the repairs. Will working on the schoolhouse with Sadie help him mend his heart?
A sweet romance of second chances and moving beyond the past. Sadie loves her job, and is passionate about teaching and working with the children. I think she did a great job with organization, but was so frustrated with her father for pushing marriage at her.
Levi is a nice guy with a gruff exterior, he has lost in love before and has let that experience cloud his hope for the future. I did like him, but it took a while to warm to him, I liked that he didn't try to take over from Sadie but let her set out what needed to be done. He is a kind man, a good listener, but struggles to let himself love again.
Overall, an enjoyable Amish read about finding love, and letting go of the past. My heart went out to Sadie's sister Sarah who is ignored for much of the story, but I liked how things turned out. An entertaining read with a sweet story of finding love when you aren't looking.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
