Birdie left the Amish community and is enjoying her life with the English world.… however, all of this must be put on hold when she learned that her mother is gravely injured in a buggy versus auto crash. It's the same buggy carrying the young man with a promising career as black smith. Unfortunately, the young man succumbed to his critical injury and passed away.
The second Birdie gets home, she learned that her father told everyone that she was away visiting relatives. A terrible lie, especially coming from the Deacon church. At the hospital her father tells her mother that Birdie had rejoined the church. Just to give Birdie's mother the strength and hope she needs to recover as best she can.
The Amish town is without a blacksmith now they put the word out that one was needed. All the way up in Ontario is a young man, named Caleb, who is a great blacksmith. But he is has been in the same community from birth until now. He thinks that it would be a good change for him and an asset to the community (Birdie's community) so he puts out the effort and get a job.
Birdie and Caleb begin talking to one another and the story begins...
This is a clever little book and my only complaint is that I wish it were long. The ending of the book especially.
The narration was good or near perfect. Great job telling me the story and allowing me to watch it in my mind without distraction. Very few narrators have that ability. Good job by Julie Lancelot.
Note: This is a lovely and interesting book about an Amish relationship.
I would not hesitate to recommend this book to any of my friends. *I was given this book in exchange for my review.

I enjoyed this book, but wasn't super impressed at the same time. I love books of this genre, but felt this book was almost incomplete. If this book had been longer, maybe the story and character could have been more developed, but having said that, the book was still a joy to listen to, even if the narrator fell short of brining the writing to life.
