Katie Ann lost the love of her life. Then God offers her a new beginning in Colorado.
Katie Ann Stolzfus lives in the small Amish community of Canaan, Colorado. At forty she is widowed and raising her first child. But baby Jonas will never know his father, and Katie Ann wonders if her Heavenly Father hasn't forgotten about her as well. Is it really God's plan for her to be a single parent?
Eli Detweiler has come to Canaan for a wedding and a long vacation. Having raised six children following the death of his young wife, Eli is finally an empty-nester. He's enjoying the slower pace of having no one to care for but himself.
When Katie Ann and Eli meet, there is an instant connection. Yet as strong as the attraction is, they both acknowledge that a romance would never work. He is done parenting, while she has just begun.
But as their friendship slowly blossoms into feelings that are as frightening as they are intoxicating, Katie Ann and Eli question if the plans they made for themselves are in line with God's plans.
Can Katie Ann entrust her heart to another man, and rediscover the wonder of God's love?

This is book #2 of the Land of Canaan series. It puts a closure to the unhappy circumstances in the life of Katie Ann Stolzus, due to the infidelity of her estranged husband in book # 1 of the Land of Canaan series.
Katie Ann gives birth to a baby boy after so many years of thinking she would never have a child of her own. But her estranged husband dies before the child is even born.Katie Ann finds much joy and peace with her baby boy and is determined with God's help to build a life for her and her fatherless child. While attending a family wedding she is introduced to Eli, a widower with 6 grown children and several grandchildren, whom is on his own now and planning to do some traveling. Katie Anne and Eli are well aware that they have become pawns in a matchmaking game by friends and family. Besides he is a miracle worker with Katie Ann's fussy baby. To throw everyone off their game the couple decide to do some site seeing and spend a few meals together even though they knew they were not a match and that they had other plans for their life. But God has big plans for them.
When I review a book I like to see if there is anything I didn't like about the book. I am glad to say the book is perfect just like it is. I fell in love with the characters and was sad for the book to end. It was like saying goodbye to old friends and not sure if you would see them again.
Beth has a true gift for bringing the characters and their feelings alive and God is there leading them all through the book.
I highly recommend this book!
I give this book a rating of 5 out of 5.
