Book 1 of the Amish Wonders series
How far can God’s mercy reach?
Lindie Wyse is pregnant out of wedlock and thinks an arranged marriage is the only way to preserve her future. Josiah Plank is certain he’ll never love again, but he needs someone to care for his eight-year-old daughter, Hannah. The two take on their arrangement tentatively at first but soon realize they are each in for more than they imagined.
Lindie experiences a breakthrough with Hannah when she recognizes Hannah’s special gifts, but a risky pregnancy and serious health issues threaten to demolish the foundation Josiah and Lindie are building. Will their growing love survive despite their struggles, or will their hearts become as cold as the northern winter?

What Readers are saying
“RUTH REID IS A NEW AUTHOR TO ME. I MUST SAY THAT SHE HAS A NEW FAN! THIS IS A BOOK THAT I COULDN’T PUT DOWN, EVEN WHEN I SHOULD HAVE BEEN ASLEEP. THE HOURS FLEW BY AS I READ THE STORY OF LINDIE, JOSIAH AND HANNAH, A WITHDRAWN AND SHY 8-YEAR-OLD. THE OBSTACLES AND COMPLICATIONS THAT STEMMED FROM PREVIOUS EVENTS EVIDENT IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP MADE FOR A COMPELLING STORY.” ~ GOODREADS REVIEW
“THIS WAS SUCH A WONDERFUL STORY!! I THINK IT HAS TO BE THE BEST AMISH FICTION THAT I’VE READ THIS YEAR SO FAR! I WAS REALLY CAPTIVATED BY LINDIE’S STORY FROM THE FIRST PAGE!” ~ GOODREADS REVIEW
“I REALLY JUST LOVE THE PROGRESSION OF THIS STORY. IT CAPTIVATES YOU, MAKES YOU LONG TO KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN, CAUSES YOU TO FALL IN LOVE WITH ALL OF THE CHARACTERS AND WITH THE THOUGHT OF LINDIE AND JOSIAH HAVING A LOVE STORY AFTER ALL; THERE IS NO END TO THE PRAISES I COULD SING FOR THIS NOVEL. HOWEVER, I CANNOT SAY THAT I REALLY LOVED THE ENDING, EXCEPT I DEFINITELY DID, I JUST WISH THAT THE BOOK WOULD HAVE GONE ON LONGER! THERE WASN’T ANYTHING WRONG WITH THE ENDING EXCEPT THAT IT WAS THE END!” ~ SPREADING HIS GRACE
