They live in completely different worlds. Can love bring them together?

Miriam Troyer has had a secret crush on Mark Byler since they were teenagers. She knows they can never have a relationship: Mark is a big-city attorney---an Englischer---and Miriam loves her quiet way of life in her Amish community. But when Mark unexpectedly shows up in Paradise, Pennsylvania, Miriam realizes it's going to get a lot harder to hide her feelings.

Even though Mark always loved visiting his grandfather's farm as a boy, he's convinced the Amish life is not for him. But when he suddenly finds himself out of a job and without direction, Mark heads back to the farm just in time to help with the harvest. Coming for a visit and coming to stay, however, are two very different things.

Everything changes when Mark sees that Miriam, the girl he remembers from his youth, has grown into the kind of faith-filled woman he wants in his future. Could life in this simple world be right for Mark after all? Has Miriam finally found her happily ever after? True love sprouts from seeds of hope.

My thoughts:

I can relate to John Byler's desire for his nephew Mark, to carry on their families's tradition of farming, while we don't have a farm to pass on to our children I also hope that they will want to carry on with our own family traditions.

Miriam loved Mark so much that she was willing to let him go in order for him to live his life the way he wanted. While John knew that they belonged together, he also knew that Mark had to discover what he needed for himself. Sometimes what we need in life is right before our eyes but we don't always recognize it until we are remolded by God. This is a good example of how we all have to wait on God's timing. Waiting for an answer from God takes a lot of patience. I wish I could say that I was good at waiting but I am not, so many times I have jumped the gun and ended up regretting my decisions.
