Summary
  • "In the first of a new series set in the Amish communities of Montana, bestselling author Kelly Irvin explores what the Amish do in the aftermath of natural disaster. Schoolteacher Mercy Yoder loves her life in the beautiful West Kootenai region of Montana. But when a wildfire blazes outside her beloved community, she and her family are forced to evacuate and flee to the small town of Eureka. John Hostetler, Mercy's beau, sorts through the damage left by the fire, helping Mercy set up a makeshift school to continue her passion. Eureka is filled with fire personnel, media, and rubberneckers--more contact with the outside world than Mercy has ever experienced. A chance encounter with a smoke jumper, Travis Cooper, leads to longer conversations about her Amish beliefs and life. As word arrives that their home was one of the houses destroyed in the fire, Mercy struggles to accept that everything they owned is gone. A life's worth of memories. She hides her bitterness from her father, who accepts such events as God's will. How can it be God's will that they would start over with nothing? John's decision to return to Kansas pours kerosene on her doubts. Her heart is doubly broken. While John is away, Travis continues to seek Mercy's company. His observations force her to look at her life from a different perspective. But is it the right perspective? When all seems lost, including her way, Mary finds unexpected beauty and love springing from the ashes of all that she's known"--
