When Amish carpenter Samuel Bowman is injured in an accident, he fears he'll never see again. He's always provided for his family—and now that it's harvest season, the Bowmans are needed in the fields, not at his bedside. So when a young Amish widow becomes his nurse, Samuel expects Rebecca Miller to make his life easier. But his caregiver is bossy, outspoken and challenges him to move on with his life. Though Samuel's sight is in question, he can plainly see the woman he's come to care for won't let herself love again. Now it's Samuel's turn to heal her heart.

I didn’t want this book to end, what a delightful read, the banter that goes on between Samuel and Rebecca is so funny. Yes there are serious moments here and we weather them along with some joy.
Rebecca has lost her husband; the love of her life, and her brother-in-law appears to be courting her as the book opens. Then there is a serious injury, and that ends up being Samuel. He feels he is entirely responsible for their families furniture business, and when he is injured he takes the blame for everything.
As you can guess, Rebecca is called to help by Samuel’s Dad; she took care of her husband when he was ill. Now opens the door to maybe a new life in Amish nursing, moving away and learning, or a bit of romance? It appears that one of Samuel’s brothers may be interested?
Can Samuel accept his disabilities, and will the family business be able to continue. Ms. David’s has written a really compelling read, and it was so very enjoyable, I for one cannot wait for the next book in this series.
I received this book from the Publisher Harlequin through Net Galley, and was not required to give a positive review.
