This book tells the story of Rachel Yoder, a blind Amish woman living at her parents B&B with her young daughter. Rachel came to live with her parents after a tragic accident left her a young widow and helped result in her blindness. She is content to quietly work behind-the-scenes at her parents' B&B until Philip Bradley, a big city reporter, comes to stay at the B&B and finds an old postcard tucked away in the stuck drawer of a writing desk. The postcard was from a mysteriously shunned relative of Rachel's and Philip begins to unravel the secrets surrounding the postcard, later sparking Rachel's interest in the tale as well, which helps to open her up to the world she had been shutting herself away from. Together, both Rachel and Philip slowly gain an understanding of faith and each other.

I really enjoyed this book. It is a fairly quick read, and I was happy to find out that it is the first book in a trilogy since there were a number of unanswered questions at the end. I also appreciated the descriptions of the different types of Amish since most people typically think of the "Old Order" when thinking about the Amish. Not everyone is aware of the "Beachy Amish" who among other things do sometimes drive cars and use electricity. Being aware of these different orders does help explain a number of things that occur in the book. All-in-all, I found it to be an enjoyable read!

Story about an Amish widow and the Englisher who comes in to her life. Pretty good story, although not as good as her other series.
