Summary
After her husband, Shep, loses his job, Jennie Davis is grateful to be in a car en route to beautiful Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Shep has inherited a house from a distant cousin, along with the cousin's long-established bicycle shop. The move gives Jennie, Shep, and their two children a welcome chance for a fresh start. While Shep dives into his new venture at the bike shop, Jennie carefully restores their broken-down house. She loves being a stay-at-home mom but yearns to find some fulfillment outside of her family--particularly as they struggle financially. On morning walks, she forges a friendship with her Amish neighbor, Mattie Fisher, who opens up about her modest way of life. Mattie's unswerving good character in the face of adversity encourages Jennie to seek practical solutions to her own difficulties. A passing remark by Jennie's son transforms desperation about their finances into inspiration, leading her to embark upon a candy-making enterprise. Soon, Jennie's newfound purpose collides with Shep's growing stress at work, and long-simmering tensions between husband and wife rise to the surface. As the holiday season approaches, their family is challenged as never before--until an unexpected visitor arrives to give Jennie the greatest gift of all
Summary
Moving to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, after inheriting a bicycle shop, Jennie Davis and her family hope for a new beginning and receive support and a sense of purpose from their Amish neighbors during a fateful Christmas season
