Marianna Sommer always dreamed of a simple Amish wedding, but there’s nothing simple about marrying rock star Ben Stone. Marianna struggles with trying to embrace new things while also longing for the traditions of her past. Yet wedding planning becomes the least of Marianna’s worries when the man she loves discusses putting their wedding on hold. Will Ben’s past regrets and worries for Marianna push them apart?
When Marianna’s father, Abe, insists on taking Ben to the mountains to “hear from God,” Ben has no grand illusions that an outfitting trip will provide any answers. As trouble finds them high on the continental divide, Ben must turn to God for survival. It’ll take a miracle for Ben, Abe, and Abe’s brother, Ike, to make it down alive.
The media is alerted when a runaway horse with blood on the saddle shows up near the trailhead, and Marianna’s worst fears come true. Will she lose her uncle, her father, or Ben? Suddenly wedding worries pale to her more significant concerns—having three men she loves come home alive.
As Marianna spends time with Ben’s music manager, she discovers a part of Ben she didn’t know before. Will Marianna be brave enough to step out of her comfort zone to help the man she loves? Or will she allow her fears to cause her to miss out on a future more wonderful than she’d ever dreamed of?

Lyla Taylor has built a social media empire around her Ruby Rose brand. Yet, one wrong post causes her carefully constructed world to collapse. With no other options, Lyla agrees to a six-week reset in rural Montana in what she believes will be a high-end spa. Lyla couldn’t have been more wrong. When her first night on the Milner farm is interrupted by unwelcome guests of the raccoon variety, Lyla is ready to throw in the towel and head back to civilization.
Amishman Reuben Milner may crumble if one more thing is added to his to-do list. After the passing of his dat, Reuben has stepped up to be the man of the family. Reuben has no time to rest with his mem and four sisters still living at home. Not to mention, his secret career as a novelist isn’t exactly in line with a devoted Amish lifestyle.
Reuben doesn’t see any way out of his double life when the elders start pressuring him to join the church. And while the rental of their dawdy house brings in much-needed funds, it soon becomes evident that their high-maintenance guest will add to his workload and stir up fond affections that Reuben must squash down.
When the Milners need help sprucing up their rental, Lyla is quick to jump in, taking her mind off the problems she left behind. But the more Lyla works on the rental with Reuben, the more she wonders if her former life is worth returning to. Yet is it the simple life that Lyla’s heart longs for or a particular guarded Amishman with secrets of his own?

Presenting Elly Gilbert
Thomas Smucker moved to West Kootenai for a fresh start. Without his overbearing, legalistic father to make decisions for him, he’s finally free to become his own man. However, within weeks of settling in Montana, Thomas’s five-year-old niece is placed in his care. Thomas’ dreams of recreating a new life for himself are dashed, and he’s forced to confront the past he desperately wanted to escape.
A childhood accident left her face disfigured, but it doesn’t keep Lovina Graber from living out her purpose. Even though Lovina longs for a husband and family of her own, she doubts it will ever happen. Instead, she dedicates her time to serving others. Whenever a maternal urge washes over her, she simply finds a new project to distract herself.
When one of the new bachelors becomes an instant father, Lovina comes to the rescue, helping Thomas care for his Englisch niece. While Thomas and his niece clash at every turn, Lovina has a special way with the child. Thomas grows increasingly indebted to Lovina for her help, even as he attempts to ignore the sparks between him and Lovina. Instead, Thomas focuses on honoring his sister’s memory and the reality of caring for his niece.
When Thomas’s new life begins to crumble, Lovina helps him pick up the pieces. But who will be there to soothe her broken heart when she realizes that her one chance at marriage and motherhood is slipping right through her fingers?
