Publisher Description

When a group of Kansas women start a Frauenverein, a benevolent society devoted to aiding widows and orphans, life changes for more than just the hurting people they seek to help in this heartwarming romance inspired by historical events—from the bestselling author of Freedom’s Song.

With classes paused for the planting season, Alexandertol’s schoolteacher Augusta Dyck is glad for some meaningful work to occupy her time. She even knows exactly who their town’s benevolence society should help first: quiet, reserved widower Konrad Rempel and his young twin sons.

Konrad Rempel, however, is adamant that he doesn’t want help. His boys are mischievous but good-hearted. And though Konrad may be struggling, he doesn’t want anyone else sticking their nose in and telling him what his sons need. Or what he needs.

For her part, the charity’s founder Martina Krahn is relieved to have a reason to spend time outside her unhappy home. It even occurs to her that she may, through her work, encounter a boy in need of a family and so find a son for her husband since they have no children of their own.

Augusta, Konrad, and Martina each have deep needs and desires, and each imagines how they should be met: by reaching out or by being left alone. But God, indeed, knows best. Will the competing agendas of Alexandertol’s residents prevent them from receiving God’s help? Or will the members of this small Mennonite community find the answers to their prayers in the very last place they expect—in one another?

I wasn’t considering grace….

Could the Frauenverein find him a wife?

This lovely story is set in Alexandertol, KS in 1897. Our three Mennonite families were originally from Russia, leaving all they knew to build a new life in America. Varying reasons had brought them this far, but the Lord was blessing them where they were. Augusta is a widow, a teacher, mother and all around helpful person. Martina is unhappy, her marriage is childless and her husband depressed and drinking. Konrad is a widower with twin boys that need a mother.

Enter the matchmaking story of Alexandertol. It was a real treat to read how things could change with love, forgiveness, friendship and more. Family is not only blood relatives - something we can all remember.

An early copy was received through WaterBrook, Penguin Random House and NetGalley. These thoughts are my own and were in no way solicited.
