Esther Beachy enjoys working for an elderly wheelchair-bound woman and her husband. Her clients are pleasant, and their home is far more peaceful than Esther’s, with so many siblings. She only dreads the day when their grandson Viktor will return from the river to take care of some business on the farm. She and Viktor were classmates years ago, and he was an obnoxious flirt who paid attention to every girl but her.A seasoned riverboat crew member, Viktor Petersheim has seen his share of trials. He left the Amish after the death of his parents and siblings in a house fire for which he still feels responsible. Now, after years of working on the Mississippi River, he returns home to help out on the farm—and, hopefully, to repair some of the damaged relationships and broken hearts he left in his wake. When Viktor returns home, it doesn’t take long for him and Esther to realize their mutual attraction. Even so, their relationship remains as tumultuous as a shaken snow globe. Viktor isn’t the only man with an eye on Esther, and soon it looks as if she’s ready to make a future with someone else. Will the two go their separate ways again? Or will the hand of God work something beautiful out of their angst and agitation?
