A young Amish woman who carries the weight of the world on her shoulders learns to share her burdens--and a few laughs--with her old classmate in the latest heart-felt Amish romance from Kelly Irvin.
Bethel King loves caring for her two brothers who have a rare form of muscular dystrophy found most frequently in Amish families. She pours her energy into helping her parents cope with the boys' care while also working at a plant nursery to earn money to pay for their medical bills. When Bethel's sister is diagnosed with the disease, Bethel is convinced she has to put her family ahead of her own dreams of marriage and family. Her parents need her. Her siblings need her.
Declan Miller loves being an auctioneer and has never wanted to do anything else. He has a well-earned reputation as a clown who can never be taken seriously. Harboring a crush on Bethel from their school days, he can't help but act the fool whenever they're together. Bethel thinks Declan is handsome and funny--too funny. How can a man who never stops joking be taken seriously? Life is no joking matter--at least hers isn't. But when he's diagnosed with a disease that could take his voice, his vocation, and ultimately his life, everything is thrown into a new light.
Is it possible God has a different--better--plan for them?
