Ever since he's been afraid of the searing pain of loss that comes from opening himself up to love. Now Jennie's free again and he's fighting to have the courage not to lose her a second time.
Nathan Walker is a Mennonite book salesman who makes it a point to stop by Jennie's farm as often as he can.

'This second entry in Irvin's seasonal series diverges from the typical Amish coming-of-age tale with its focus on more mature protagonists who acutely feel their sense of loss. Fans of the genre seeking a broader variety of stories may find this new offering from a Carol Award winner more relatable than the usual fare.' Library Journal 'Jennie's story will speak to any woman who has dealt with the horror of abuse and the emotional aftermath it carries, as well as readers who have questioned how God can allow such terrible things to happen. The choice Jennie makes to take a chance on love again and to open her heart to God after all she has suffered is brave and hopeful, leaving readers on an uplifting note.' RT Book Reviews, 4 stars
