After an extended stay in Montana, where Amish traditions are different than in her home state, Marianna Sommer returns to Indiana for two reasons, first to help her brother and his girlfriend prepare for a baby and their wedding. Second, to plan her own wedding to Aaron Zook -- a marriage she's been dreaming about ever since childhood. And yet, although she had missed the idyllic farms and families of her upbringing, Marianna is surprised that Indiana is somehow making her long now for Montana. As months pass, secrets that were hidden in winter's frozen grasp thaw and take on a life of their own. The truths about a child, about a past relationship, and about God's plans are being revealed. Walking through a valley of questions, Marianna must hold on to hope as she decides where and with whom her heart truly belongs. Reviews: "The details of Amish living are interesting in this sweet love story with characters with charm and wit. Goyer is a talented author who always delivers a well-thought-out, meaningful novel the reader will not soon forget." --RT Book Reviews
