"A Mennonite widower struggling to raise his mischievous boys becomes the unwilling target of the well-intentioned women's benevolent society in this heartwarming romance inspired by historical events-from the bestselling author of Freedom's Song. After reading about the popularity in New York of the Frauenverein, a benevolent society dedicated to caring for German widows and orphans, the women of a Mennonite community in Alexandertol, Kansas, eagerly organize their own group and begin to identify the individuals most in need of their assistance. Schoolteacher Augusta Dyck is particularly grateful to have meaningful work to occupy her time when classes are closed for planting season, and she's certain the quiet and reserved widower Konrad Rempel and his two young twin boys should be high on the list of people to receive help, even if he doesn't quite agree. Martina Krahn, who founded the community's Frauenverein, is thankful the society gives her a reason to spend less time in her own unhappy home. And if it means she might find a young boy in need of a family to adopt and answer her husband's desire for a son, all the better. Will the women's outreach be the unexpected answer to Konrad's prayers about his boys and his heart? Will the members of this Mennonite community find the answer to their prayers in one another--or will their conflicting agendas lead only to fresh heartache?"-- Provided by publisher.
