How to Heal a Broken Heart

Mary Yoder's life couldn't get much better. She's engaged to be married, spring is in the air, and love is in her heart as she looks forward to the fall wedding she's always dreamed of. Six months later on a crisp November morning, Mary awakens in a lovely little valley near the Adirondack Mountains on what was to be her wedding day, heartbroken and alone. Her sister, Betsy, tries to protect Mary from the romantic overtures of Stephen Overholt, a longtime Amish bachelor. Betsy is considering jumping the fence for the Englisha world and encourages Mary to follow. Meanwhile, Mrs. Gabert, an elderly Englisha grandmother, launches her own matchmaking effort on behalf of her grandson Willard, who is a missionary to Kenya and nursing his own broken heart. She hopes that Willard and Mary can find comfort in one another despite the fact they come from two different worlds. As Mary struggles to accept the Lord's will, she must determine whether or not one of her potential suitors can give her the future that was denied her.

display_description On a crisp fall morning in November, Mary Yoder awakens in the valley at the foothills of the Adirondacks on her wedding day. The only problem? Joshua Beiler broke their relationship off six months prior. And now he plans to wed his new sweetheart on the exact same day Mary was to be his bride. Heartbroken, Mary forces herself to walk to work alongside her sister, Becky, for moral support. When the sisters arrive at the food co-op, it seems that everyone in the Amish community knows of Mary's misfortune. That includes Stephen Overholt, a longtime bachelor who Becky suspects has plans to take advantage of her sister's vulnerable state. And he's not the only one. Mary's neighbor, Mrs. Gabert, launches her own matchmaking effort when her grandson, Willard, visits for the week. Willard invites Mary and Becky to a talk he's giving on his upcoming mission to Kenya. As Mary struggles to accept the Lord's will and find healing, she must determine whether or not one of her potential suitors can give her the future Joshua denied her.
