Her husband's Aunt Betty and a filthy hobo become her unlikely support system. Jake shows his appreciation for a meal and shelter by helping her run the orchard. Yet, questions nag at her. Who is this stranger, and how did he learn the skills needed to run the farm?
Eliza's desire for family and home motivate her actions. Her past threatens to unravel the fabric of her life. Will she ever be able to trust anyone with her heart? Are Jake's motives pure or is he looking to take advantage of a woman in distress?
Through a series of difficulties, Eliza sees how God provides for every need. She learns to trust him rather than her own resourcefulness or those around her.
Lynn Austin's skillful storytelling had me glued to this book. The unusual plot, complex characters, and rich description blend into a satisfying story you won't want to miss.
