The promise of easter / Marta Perry.

Perry, Marta, (author.).


"Anna Stoltzfus lives a quiet but fulfilling life in Promise Glen. Though she lost her beloved brother in a tragic accident, her family is supportive and close-knit, and her job as a cherished teacher at the Orchard Hill Amish School fills her heart with joy each day. Anna knows one day she'll find someone she can love and marry, but she's perfectly happy with the life she created. Anna's comfort is quickly dashed, however, when the man Anna deemed responsible for James's death - Matthew King - returns to the Amish community. Forgiveness is at the heart of being Amish, and no one else blames Matthew; his grief and pain over losing his dear friend are obvious. Still, no matter how she tries, Anna can't let go of the reckless night that ended her brother's life so soon. The ache had been more tolerable after Matthew left Promise Glen, but now, not only has he returned, Anna's father accepts his offer to work on their farm. As the preparation for Easter begins, Anna's regular contact with Matthew introduces her to a man far different than the boy she knew before. Perhaps the season of solemn reflection and joyous remembrance might be exactly what they both need to find forgiveness for the past for a hopeful future . . ."-- Provided by publisher.
