Get swept away in the first installment of Amy Clipston’s Amish Legacy series.
They were “only friends” . . . but they wanted so much more.
Crystal Glick is grateful to live with her brother’s family since her father died and her fiancé, Owen, broke their engagement. Crystal loves her bruderskinner and cheerfully helps her sister-in-law through a difficult pregnancy with babies number seven and eight, but she yearns for a husband and children of her own.
Duane Bontrager is mourning the recent death of his wife, Connie, after twenty-four years of marriage. He and his grown sons have a thriving roofing business but can’t get used to life without her. As the young men prepare to launch out on their own, Duane can’t imagine life alone—nor with anyone but Connie.
When a roofing job at the Glicks introduces Duane and Crystal, they’re attracted in spite of their fourteen-year age difference. But their bishop thinks Duane is better suited for the sweet widow Tricia, and Duane’s sons object to his interest in any woman. Crystal’s family fears losing her indispensable help. If she must go, they’d rather she be reunited with Owen in spite of his betrayal.
They’re the only two who believe they’re a match made in heaven, can Duane and Crystal overcome the obstacles to love?

Amy Clipston did a good job in making you fall in love with the characters, Duane and Crystal. As their friendship begins to grow into something more, obstacles begin to pop up and that slows their relationship down. Will they be able to overcome the things that prevent them from moving forward? I found myself staying up late to finish the book to see what steps they would take to continue their budding relationship. This book was very engaging and enjoyable. I highly recommend it as a purchase for yourself or a gift for someone. I was given a copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher for my honest opinion and review.
