BACK OF THE BOOK BLURBAs Promise Lodge's first wedding arrives, the evidence of a community building a foundation for the future is a cause for celebration. But the bishop's narrow-minded wedding sermon doesn't sit well with the Bender sisters, the town's courageous founders, especially widowed Mattie Schwartz. She believes marriage and family aren't the most important of God's gifts--even if she suspects her tender feelings for Preacher Amos Troyer run deeper than simple friendship.
Amos hasn't given up hope that stubborn, spirited Mattie will change her mind about taking another husband, but when an accident threatens to change the course of his life forever, he wonders if the Lord has sent him a message. He'll need faith, hope, and charity to find the right path--and a Christmas blessing to convince Mattie to walk it with him.
MY REVIEWA very good book with a lot going on, I could hardly put this down. Charlotte has done a great job of writing a book that starts out with a , 'REALLY?' sermon, and then brings it all together. It is a shocking sermon because it kind of goes against the reason the sisters and Amos started, and have planned for, Promise Lodge. Highly recommended by 'ME'.
