In Amy Clipston’s new novella collection, young Amish couples manage a community garden to raise money for a good cause, harvesting friendships and love along the way.
Spring Is in the Air
As the youth of Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, plant a garden in memory of their friend, Katie Ann begins to worry that her older brother, Ephraim, is dating her best friend. What if she somehow loses them both? But Christian, a new boy in the community, also works in the garden-and falling for him may be exactly the distraction, and lesson, that Katie Ann needs.
Home by Summer
Clara Hertzler is surprised when Jerry Petersheim, her old friend, comes to the garden to drop off his younger sister-especially because Jerry dresses like an Englisher, drives a truck, and uses a cell phone. As the friends get to know each other again after years apart, Clara pushes Jerry to examine why he abandoned his Amish beliefs. Will Clara help Jerry renew his faith in God, and will they find love along the way?
The Fruits of Fall
Tena Speicher has come to live in Bird-in-Hand after her fiance left her for an English woman. When a homeless veteran comes to the fruit stand one day and asks for food, Tena is not sure how to respond-but Wayne intervenes and offers to let him stay in the barn. Afraid to trust Englishers, Tena must learn, with Wayne’s help, that everyone is a child of God and deserving of kindness.
Ephraim and Mandy have plans to marry, but after an ugly argument, they decide to go their separate ways. Fortunately, their friends at the Amish garden conspire to bring them back together.
