This is the first novel in the Patch of Heaven series. It was an easy and enjoyable read. The setting is Pennsylvania’s Allegheny Mountains in an Amish community. The story centers around Sarah King, a 20 year old young lady that has been brought up in a loving Amish family. She loves tending to her garden and generally prefers to be alone, but her world begins to change when her father sends her to work at a roadside stand selling fruits, vegetables and other baked goods. Sarah is very hesitant and nervous, knowing that she will daily be in contact with the outside world….the “Englischers”. Indeed, she does meet many Englischers! One in particular is Grant Williams, a veterinarian that has moved in to practice among the Amish community. Sarah and Grant begin to grow in their fondness of one another and soon realize that they have fallen in love. The only problem is that Sarah is Amish and Grant is not! If Sarah chooses to marry Grant, she will be forced to leave her family, her home and her community. They really believe that the Lord has called them to be together, but it seems as if it’s just not to be. You’ll have to read the book to find out what choices are ultimately made!
