In this book we are introduced to the Baker family. They are an Amish family living and working in their apple orchard. The sisters are all unmarried, and Mercy is convinced that Stephen, the young man who is coming from another Amish community to help with the harvest, is the man she is destined to fall in love with and marry.
Her older half sister, Florence, isn't so sure. After all, the two have never met, so how could Mercy be so sure that Stephen is the right man for her? Is it merely a sisterly concern? Or could it be that Florence is a bit jealous that her younger sister might find love before she herself does?
I enjoyed this nice relaxing tale of the "Bonnet Sisters" (as they are referred to by a new, non-amish neighbor). He seems to be someone who, though unsuitable to be considered for an amish girl's husband, might have caught Florence's interest. I am very interested in seeing how this relationship, as well as the rest of the Baker family’s future adventures, continues in the following books in this series.
