I so enjoy every book that Wanda E. Brunstetter writes. This was definitely no exception. This was fun to have the characters a bit older than normal. This story had me going back and forth as to whether Elma was going to end up with Ben or her old friend Delbert. This was such a good story. I received a copy of this book from Barbour for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
Living alone for the first time in her life is lonely for Elma Hochstetler, whose twin sister Thelma recently married. Though they share the running of a general store, more and more of Thelma’s time is taken up by her growing family. Elma has dated some, but she wonders if she is just too picky to find love.
Through a mishap at the farmers’ market, Elma meets Ben Wagler and instantly likes him. But there is a problem. He lives in Grabill—50 miles away! But Elma has tried long-distance dating before, and it won’t work for her. Besides the store needs her. Her sister needs her. Elma feels love will forever remain beyond her grasp.
Elma has a habit of putting others before her own needs. Can she learn to take a risk at following the desires of her heart?
