Jilted by her first love, Sovilla Mast fled her hometown to live in
Pennsylvania with an aunt she's never met. Only after she arrives does
she realize that the cantankerous woman has left the faith and alienated
everyone around her. To take her mind off her sadness, Sovilla turns
to baking homemade pet food and treats to sell at the Valley Green
Farmer's Market. It's there she meets dog breeder Isaac Lantz . . .
Shy and kind-hearted, Isaac breeds Labrador retrievers and works as a puppy raiser for assistance dogs. When he and Sovilla bond at the market, he is immediately drawn to her. And when he tells her he needs a new puppy raiser, Sovilla jumps at the chance. But as their friendship deepens, Isaac can’t help but notice that Sovilla keeps herself at a safe distance. Gaining a puppy’s trust and affection has been easy for Isaac, yet he has no idea how to win the heart of the woman he’s fallen in love with—until Sovilla needs advice in dealing with her aunt. Soon, Isaac is putting his lessons from man’s best friend, and his faith, to work for the good of all involved.
