Joanna Kohler treasures the independence her Amish quilt shop provides. She rarely leans on others, yet finding an injured woman on her property makes her grateful for the store owner next door, Noah Troyer. Calm and unflappable, Noah offers support. He also points out the strong resemblance between Joanna and the unconscious stranger... Noah may admire Joanna, but the bishop's daughter is out of reach. Though he's made a good life, Noah still feels shadowed by the shame his father brought on the community. But it's his duty to aid his lovely neighbor, especially when danger draws close. As he and Joanna unearth answers about her past, Noah will have to confront his own if he's to have a chance at building a future with the woman he'll love forever.
