Summary
A Heartwarming Tale of Courage and Love from Amish Fiction's #1 Author

When a well-to-do family asks Sallie Riehl to be their daughter's nanny for the summer at their Cape May, New Jersey, vacation home, she jumps at the chance to broaden her horizons beyond the Lancaster County Amish community where she grew up. Sallie has long dreamed of seeing more of the world, but her parents are reluctant for her to put off baptism yet another summer, and the timing is unfortunate for Perry Zook, who has renewed interest in courting her.

Though she loves nannying, Sallie has free time on the weekends to enjoy the shore. It is there that she meets Kevin Kreider, a marine biology student who talks freely about all he's learning and asks about her interests, unlike most of the guys she grew up with. Time with Kevin is invigorating, and Sallie realizes she's never felt quite this alive around Perry. Then again, Kevin is Mennonite, not Amish.

Sallie tries to brush aside her growing feelings for Kevin, but she fears what her parents would think about her new friendship. Just as concerning, however, is Sallie's realization that her time in Cape May is increasing her desire to see the world, challenging her plans for the future. Has she been too hasty with her promises, or will Sallie only find what her heart is longing for back home in Paradise Township?

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bestseller Lewis (The Wish) continues her streak of affecting, enjoyable Amish tales with this story of a young woman in present-day Lancaster County, Penn., who's eager to see the world. Sallie Riehl is the youngest of 10 children. Her older siblings have settled down, but she has always had a case of wanderlust and has been saving her money to travel to Australia as her last opportunity for adventure before being baptized into the Amish community. When those long-awaited plans change, she jumps at the chance to spend the summer as a nanny for a young girl in Cape May, N.J.-even though it means delaying her baptism another year and leaving a would-be suitor behind. While there, she discovers the wonders of a world she has never known. She also encounters Kevin Kreider, a Mennonite with family ties to the Amish. As the two become friends, she is torn between her loving family at home and the lure of the larger world. Sallie must struggle and pray to figure out what God wants of her. Fans of Lewis's work or Amish fiction in general will relish this heartwarming story of self-discovery, friendship, and the search for God's will. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
