After a devastating winter, a spring breeze promises more than new flowers.… It promises a new chance at love.

Bess Weaver, twenty and expecting her first child, is in the kitchen making stew for her beloved mann, Caleb, one minute, and the next she’s burying him after a tragic accident. Facing life as a young widow, Bess finds comfort only in tending the garden at an Englisch-owned bed and breakfast—even as she doubts that new growth could ever come after such a long winter.

Aidan tries to repress his guilt over his best friend Caleb’s death and his long-standing feelings for Bess by working harder than ever. But as he spends time with the young son his friend left behind, he seems to be growing closer to the boy’s beautiful mother as well.

When a close-knit group of widows in her Amish community step in to help Bess find her way back to hope, she begins to wonder if Gott has a future for her after all. Will she ever believe that life can still hold joy and the possibility of love?

Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher, Zondervan, for free to read and review through the blogger review program at BookLook Bloggers. I was not required to give a favorable review only an honest review, nor was I compensated for my review. All thoughts and comments in this review are my own.

Bess Weaver at the age of twenty found out just how quickly life can change. One moment she is preparing stew for her beloved Caleb and contemplating the birth of their first child, when suddenly a tragic accident thrusts her into widowhood and a season of doubt. As she struggles to deal with God's will and build a new life for her son, Joshua, without her husband, she finds herself working at an English bed and breakfast, but the advances of the owners son, is not acceptable to the Amish community. The community rally’s around her to show her she must stay true to her faith and surrender to God’s plan.

Aidan Graber, Caleb’s dearest friend, finds himself guilt-ridden because he feels responsible for Caleb’s death…If he hadn’t sent Caleb to the store…he might still be alive. Aidan has also had feelings for Bess longer than he can remember. As Caleb lay dying in his arms, he promised him he would look after Bess and his child…but will Bess let him?

Although this is the first book I have read by Kelly Irvin, it won’t be my last. By the end of the first page, I knew it would be hard for me to put the book down. Irvin weaves a story showing faith put to the test in seemingly unsurmountable situations. She also shows that these situations can happen to anyone…even the seasoned Christian. As I read Bess’ story, my heart ached because of the despair she felt in not being able to understand and accept her husband’s death as God’s will. She knew from her teaching it was sinful to doubt, but her heart was broken. Also from the standpoint of a new mother, she didn’t think because she was Amish that she was supposed to admit to depression. She didn’t think Plain people suffered from it. Even though her journey was difficult, with friends and family to support her, she was able to realize that God was patiently waiting for her to accept his love, grace and belief that His plan for her future was best. This book is filled with love, forgiveness, acceptance and grace. As you read it…just keep the tissues handy. It will definitely tug at your heart strings.
