Publisher's Summary

Lydia King is suddenly a widow and moves her son and herself to Charm, Ohio, to be close to her mother and help with her grandfather. But is her heart ready for romance when gifts begin appearing on her porch from a mysterious source? Menno Troyer, a furniture store owner, is also recently widowed and the father of four energetic boys. He has come to realize that, though he doesn’t think he’s ready to love again, his sons need a mother. Levi Stutzman, another newcomer to the area, is the only one in his family not handicapped by dwarfism, and he has dedicated his life to caring for them. Though determined never to marry, he is always willing to be of help to others. Will the anonymous gifts left for Lydia bring her hope for a new life? And when tragedy befalls her yet again, will the mysterious gift-giver be there to support her?

Very disapointed.

I loved all of Wanda's books, but this one is awful. The director needs to listen to this book, and he would surely make changes. The voice sounds like a teen girl trying to sound cute. The story talks about little people, which is ok, but then steers the widow away in case she would have children with the same condition. I quit listening 2 hours into the book.

Mostly Great

Most of this was a great story well written. Too much death for me, though. I loved the parts with the little people and the many different storylines, and I liked the ending. The narrator was a delight! Her children's and female voices were awesome, especially the kinner! Her men's voices were kind of goofy, but her depth of feeling and performance were great!

Although good story...much disappointment

Brooke Sanford is NOT an Amish narrator. The voices were so baby talk like I almost returned this book. Mature Amish women don't sound like 6 year olds!!! Very disappointed. She needs to listen to real Amish narrators and take a page out of their books!!! I am tired of these immature voices. Beverly Lewis always seems to find the best narrators.
