A young Amish woman is torn between the man she’s pledged to marry and the man her heart desires . . .

Bride-to-be Leona is thrilled to be on a mini-vacation in the pretty town of Pinecraft. Her girlfriends think she’s happy to be away from the stress of wedding planning; they have no idea that Leona’s real joy is in being away from her fiancé.

Edmund is a good man and will make a decent husband . . . just not for Leona. The more time she spends with him and his overbearing ways, the less she wants to be his wife. But when a chance encounter with a wayward cat brings her face-to-face with a handsome, fun-loving Amish man named Zachary Kauffman, Leona’s faced with two vastly different futures.

And now Leona must decide: Does she follow the path set out before her? Or take a chance with only the promise of what could be to guide her?
