Sadie Kuhns is a sensible young Amish woman. She visited Hawaii and now wants to make a quilt with Amish patterns and Hawaiian patterns to commemorate her time on the islands. She's also self-publishing a book. With all the time invested in these projects her relationship with her boyfriend suffers as he feels like everything she is doing is way

more important than him.

He also has some issues of his own as he can't find satisfaction in any of the jobs he has and Sadie worries he won't be able to support a family if they marry.

As she gets deeper into her book promotion her relationship really suffers and he breaks it off with her though he doesn't want to.

The book has a really great life lesson in it because we all have things that are important to us but at what price?

The book makes you pause to think about your own life and what you are doing in it.

It's all about balancing what's important to us with family obligations and spending time, not just time but quality time with the one's important to us.

I love the life lessons I find in this author's books. They are not preachy but done in a subtle way so that you may not even realize they are a lesson but you'll be shaking your head in agreement as you read this book.

Does Sadie find a way to balance what's important to her or is all lost ?

Wonderful book and recommended!

Will pursuing Sadie’s dreams mean leaving a romance behind?

Sadie Kuhns has a lot happening in her life. She is creating a unique quilt by blending a traditional Amish pattern with a Hawaiian pattern as a tribute to her time spent in the islands, and she is working on a self-published book. But her relationship with Wyman Kauffman has stagnated after six months of courtship. He can’t seem to commit to a profession that would secure a future, and he is jealous of the time Sadie gives to her own pursuits. Is there really any reason to drag this courtship out? Only time will tell in this new novel from New York Times bestselling author Wanda E. Brunstetter, writing with her

daughter-in-law Jean Brunstetter.
