Rachel is 20 and unmarried, and no prospects.  After her brother's death, she had taken over his duties on the farm helping her father.   She doesn't care for cleaning and cooking., preferring to be outside.  When her father hires Jordan, the son of an Amish woman who left the faith to marry a truck driver, who then proceeds to run off and leave them.   and relieves her of her 'outdoor duties' she isn't happy.  She bakes him a pie, leaving out the sugar, hoping to run him off...
Jordan has no intention of joining the faith, he had just promised his mother, before her death, that he would visit and spend some time with her brother, before moving on with his life.
Nathaniel, God's Angel, is watching over both Rachel and Jordan, while Targus, Satan's Angel, was trying to convince them that God didn't care.
Jordan goes to meet his father, who has gotten in touch, and meanwhile, Rachel's sister, Sadie starts having problems and dies when her baby daughter is born, leaving her husband, Timothy, with  a newborn and no one to take care of it.    Rachel steps in, and Timothy soon relies on her fully to care for the child.
Will Rachel marry Timothy, or will her heart direct her to Jordan, and will he return?

I thoroughly enjoyed the conflict of 'good versus evil' in this story.  I think Mrs. Reid did a wonderful mob weaving this story, and I'll be waiting for her next book to come out, so I can read it, too.

I received this book from Booksneeze to read and review, no other compensation was given.  I'm not required to give a favorable review, all opinions expressed here are my own.

That sounds like a good story, Jettie. I am amazed at all the reading you get done and by the number of good stories you have been blessed to read.

Hope you have a good night-off to bed here soon. xo Diana
