Settling in to her new life in Canaan, Colorado, Katie Ann Stoltzfus
gives birth to a beautiful baby boy. The boy’s father – her estranged
husband – died before their son is born. Despite his infidelities, Ivan
was her one true love. She mourns his loss, vows never to trust another
man, and resolves to fill the role of both mother and father to her son.

Then Eli Detweiler arrives in Canaan to
attend his niece’s wedding. He’s been raising his kids alone in
Middlefield, Ohio since his wife’s death fifteen years ago. Now each child is
married, so Eli looks forward to living a less-structured life—and
eating shoofly pie for breakfast every morning. There’s no one to care
for except himself. 

When a meddling—but good-hearted—Englisch woman plays
matchmaker for Katie Ann and Eli, they find themselves facing an
unexpected, hopeful future … brought together by God’s wondrous love.
