Présentation de l'éditeur
Twenty-seven-year-old Joanna Kurtz has made several trips to the altar, but never as a bride. But the single young Amish woman is a closet writer with a longing to be published - something practically unheard of in her Lancaster County community. Yet Joanna's stories aren't her only secret. Unknown even to her younger sister, Cora - who seems to have suitors to spare, Joanna is the object of courtship from afar. Eben Troyer is a responsible young Amishman who hopes to make Joanna Kurtz his bride - if he can ever leave his parents' farm in Shipshewana, Indiana. Yet with his only brother off in the 'Englisher' world, and intent on a military career, Eben's hopes for building a life with his dear Joanna are dimming, and patience is wearing thin. If Joanna is ever going to be more than a bridesmaid, something needs to happen.
