Sometimes the greatest act of courage is trusting your heart…

After loving and losing the perfect husband, widow Rosemary Mishler can’t imagine ever marrying again. Yet the small Amish community of Bliss Valley keeps playing matchmaker—and the arrival of newcomer Gideon Wingard only makes things worse. But when a little Englisch girl is abandoned in her kitchen and is discovered to be her late husband’s child, Rosemary realizes that her perfect husband clearly had some secrets of his own…

Gideon left his community to escape the matchmakers—only to stumble upon more. And he can’t quite steel himself against the pull of Rosemary’s somber gray eyes and his need to help her with the small kind who’s been left to her care. With his feelings for Rosemary and the little girl growing stronger every day, Gideon can see himself putting down roots in Bliss Valley. But is the hope of love enough for him to plan a future…and a family?

A few days later, a young blond woman stops at Gideon's shop and tells him to give Rosemary a letter and a message about leaving something in her kitchen and she does not want it back.
Rosemary pulls up to her house and Gideon gives her the letter and the message, they both go in and find a 5 year old little girl in ragged clothes asking Rosemary if she were her Mommy now ?
Rosemary finds a picture of her former husband and a young woman in the paperwork and is startled because her husband had never told her he had a child, he was very secretive about his past.
You will have to read the story for yourself to find out what happens to Gideon, Rosemary and little Braelynn.
