All of Pleasant Valley seems to think the newcomer from Lancaster County is the perfect match for teacher Leah. After all, so few new families come to their separate Amish community, and fewer still unmarried men. Daniel Glick is a widower with three young children to look after - clearly he's in need of a wife.
Daniel's past haunts him. Though he cannot miss the beauty in Leah's bright eyes and patient ways, he also sees a reminder of his pain-filled marriage. Leah, too, has a burden to bear. Years ago, she was engaged to Johnny Kile, and she was heartbroken when he decided to leave the Amish community. Since then she has immersed herself in teaching, forgetting any hopes of having her own family. When Johnny returns, seeking reconciliation, Leah must decide between two pathways, either of which will completely change her life.

not sure of ending till the end good amish fiction
More that one choice.
The complexity of the characters and Leah processing how she would come to her final decision - all her decisions. Then the compromise was welcomed.
I wouldn't begin to compare this work to another.
Her tone and inflection bring the characters and circumstances to life enriching the story!
Wonderful story! I also bought the Kindle to go along with the audiobook and it was delightful! I have read/listened to it twice.
