She can’t cook, sew, sing, or clean. And no matter how hard young Anna
Yoder tries, she’d much rather help people in trouble than be a
well-behaved pretty face and properly perfect Amish maidel. So
she instantly reaches out to her old schoolmate, Felty Helmuth, when
their Amish town ostracizes him for his Korean War army service. He's
still the only one who's ever understood Anna—and liked everything from
her green Jello carrot salads to her love of books. And this holiday
season, she can't help hoping that somehow she and Felty can find a way
to be the perfect match . . .
Felty sensed he was called by Gotte to
serve his country, though it went against his community’s peaceful
ways. Troubled by his wartime experiences, he is resigned to being an
outsider avoided by most eligible Amish girls. But lively, intelligent
Anna has grown into a warm-hearted generous woman who accepts Felty for
who he is. And in the face of family and community opposition, he and
Anna will take a leap of faith to prove they are made for each other—and
a lifetime of happiness.

When I saw a new Annie and Felty story I knew I had to read it, and I
was not disappointed. I just love these two, they sure compliment each
other, and we are around to be a part of the beginning of their
Surprising facts come out when we begin our journey, and we find out how each of their families feel about their relationship.
from the beginning Annie, to most anyway, was a horrible cook, and our
Felty well, right from start loves her cooking! This has to be the best
matchmaking of the series, and one that begins it all. I personally
cannot wait for more!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington, and was not required to give a positive review
