The third and final novel in the Amish Journeys series by bestselling author Beth Wiseman.
Lydia and Samuel Bontrager weren’t planning to get married, and they certainly weren’t prepared when Lydia became pregnant at only seventeen. But they did the right thing—according to the Ordnung and their forceful parents—and wed shortly after finding out Lydia was with child.
Now, they are raising their six-month-old daughter, Mattie, and living as husband and wife. Resentful at being pushed into marriage, both Lydia and Samuel are unhappy and have fallen into a mundane routine that includes love for their daughter but not for each other. As they watch their young friends date and fall in love, they find themselves wishing they could experience the courtship they’ve missed out on.
Can Lydia and Samuel find romance and love within their marriage of convenience? Or is too much awkwardness and resentment causing them to settle for less than a marriage can and should be?
