“A great addition to the wonderful Seasons of the Heart romance series” from the beloved author of Autumn Winds and Winter of Wishes (RT Book Reviews, 4 stars).
As a bright season brings a fresh start to Willow Ridge, Annie Mae Knepp feels she can never make peace with the past. Her disgraced ex-bishop father is furious she has taken her five siblings to live with her. She’s never been truly at home in her faith . . . or believing in herself. And Annie Mae fears no man will want to take on the responsibilities she’s gladly shouldered. True, her quiet neighbor Adam Wagler has been steadfast and unshakeable helping her through her trials, but he surely couldn't think of someone so lost as more than a friend. Believing she is unworthy because of her doubts, Annie Mae will find in a moment of surprising revelation that God can work impossible miracles—and that love makes all things new.

Hubbard's fourth Seasons of the Heart installment (after Winter of Wishes) features pretty Annie Mae Knepp, daughter of the overbearing Amish bishop who alienated his congregation in earlier books. Annie Mae, just 17, is torn between loyalty and responsibility to her motherless siblings and the normal wish of a teenager to explore romantic relationships. Her new job as a waitress at the Sweet Seasons Caf throws her into contact with quiet carpenter Adam Wagler, whose face lights up when he sees her, but she is too busy flirting with more exciting young men to value his friendship until crisis strikes. The warm and supportive town of Willow Ridge will appeal to readers who appreciate the traditional values and neighborly ways of the plain folk.
