Release date: February 22, 2022
In this touching Amish romance, a brokenhearted woman and a steadfast man discover that the safest place to weather tragedy is in each other’s arms.
After the murder of both her parents, Emma Hochstedler returns to the small community of Johns Mill, hoping to resume her quiet existence. Reclaiming her place proves harder than expected—especially now that a movie is being made about her family’s loss. But then, an old friend offers her a lifeline that gives her new purpose.
Amish builder Samuel Christner is the biggest—and the strongest—man in town. In fact, the gentle giant has only one weakness—Emma. Even though she broke his heart, he won’t let his childhood sweetheart face her troubles alone. He hires Emma as a nurse for his elderly aunt…and finds himself falling for her all over again.
But while romance blooms, storm clouds gather. And when darkness falls, it will take all Sam’s strength—and all their love—to see them through.
Go to town? By herself? Emma lifted her eyebrows, distracted from her worries about
This was unexpected.
She hadn't been to town much since she'd come home, and on the few occasions she'd
needed to go, Joseph had stopped his work to drive her. It was frustrating, having to be taken
here and there like a child, but she'd understood her brother's caution.
After her parents' murders, the Englisch media had swarmed Johns Mill, anxious for
photographs and details. Since it was Trevor Abbott's obsession with Emma that had led the
troubled young man to attack her parents in their general store, the reporters had been obsessed
with her as well.
In fact, they'd made such nuisances of themselves that her hot-tempered twin had ended
up punching one of them and disgracing himself in the eyes of their church. In the heartbreaking
days that followed, Caleb had turned his back on his faith, and Emma had fled to her uncle's
more secluded community, hoping everything might calm down if she was gone.
The plan had worked-mostly.
