"A great addition to the wonderful Seasons of the Heart romance series" from the beloved author of Autumn Winds and Winter of Wishes (RT Book Reviews, 4 stars).

As a bright season brings a fresh start to Willow Ridge, Annie Mae Knepp feels she can never make peace with the past. Her disgraced ex-bishop father is furious she has taken her five siblings to live with her. She's never been truly at home in her faith . . . or believing in herself. And Annie Mae fears no man will want to take on the responsibilities she's gladly shouldered. True, her quiet neighbor Adam Wagler has been steadfast and unshakeable helping her through her trials, but he surely couldn't think of someone so lost as more than a friend. Believing she is unworthy because of her doubts, Annie Mae will find in a moment of surprising revelation that God can work impossible miracles—and that love makes all things new.
"The warm and supportive town of Willow Ridge will appeal to readers who appreciate the traditional values and neighborly ways of the plain folk."—Publishers Weekly

Praise for Charlotte Hubbard and the Seasons of the Heart series
"Fans of Amish fiction will love the Seasons of the Heart series."—Marta Perry, national bestselling author

"A heartwarming new voice for fans of Beverly Lewis."—Emma Miller, author of An Amish Mystery series

"These very special books will sit proudly on my keeper shelf!"—Romance Reviews Today

About the Author-
  • Drawing upon her experiences in Jamesport, the largest Old Order Amish community west of the Mississippi, longtime Missourian Charlotte Hubbard writes of simpler times and a faith-based lifestyle. Charlotte considers it her personal mission to feed people—to share hearth and home. Faith and family, farming and food preservation are hallmarks of her lifestyle—and the foundation of all her Amish romance series. She's a deacon, a dedicated church musician, and a choir member. When she's not writing, she loves to try new recipes, crochet, and sew. Charlotte now lives in Minnesota with her husband and their border collie.

    March 10, 2014
    Hubbard’s fourth Seasons of the Heart installment (after Winter of Wishes) features pretty Annie Mae Knepp, daughter of the overbearing Amish bishop who alienated his congregation in earlier books. Annie Mae, just 17, is torn between loyalty and responsibility to her motherless siblings and the normal wish of a teenager to explore romantic relationships. Her new job as a waitress at the Sweet Seasons Café throws her into contact with quiet carpenter Adam Wagler, whose face lights up when he sees her, but she is too busy flirting with more exciting young men to value his friendship until crisis strikes. The warm and supportive town of Willow Ridge will appeal to readers who appreciate the traditional values and neighborly ways of the plain folk. Agent: Evan Marshall Agency.
