Amy Lillard presents Book 3 in the Paradise Valley series.
At the heart of a Missouri Amish community, a circle of caring friends—the Widows' Club of Paradise Valley—sees each other through life's storms, in this uplifting series from award-winning author Amy Lillard . . .
Joy Lehman has pressed on faithfully since losing her husband, raising their children and running a thriving bakery alone. Even caring for her oldest son, Johnny—seriously injured after a fall—has not shaken her fierce independence. Johnny will walk again, she's sure. Until then, a meeting of the Widows' Club at her home makes it clear that Joy must consider some costly renovations. Her brother-in-law, Uriah, is happy to provide the lumber and the labor—if Joy will accept his help.
Uriah understands family challenges—he's a widower himself, and father to four daughters. Yet he can see that Joy's struggle lies deeper than house repairs, in learning to accept an altered future for her son. As Uriah's daughters begin helping in the bakery, and Joy and Uriah's bond grows deeper, a new possibility glows bright—the unexpected happiness that lies in embracing one strong, united family, filled with support and love . . .
