Overview
Written with tenderness and simplicity. Joan Wester Anderson, New York Times bestselling author
First in a new series
Three young Amish women, gifted with hand-carved hope chests to hold their treasures and their dreams for the future, find the inspiration they need to help them reconcile love and faith in the most unexpected ways
The last thing Rebecca Sommer dreamed her plan to wed would bring is a heart-wrenching choice. She thought she and her betrothed, William, would spend the rest of their lives in Illinois heartland, raising a family in their close-knit Amish hometown. But when he must travel far out of state to save his ailing father's business, Rebecca braves her relatives' disapproval and her own fears to go work by his side. And though she finds herself ever more in love with the dedicated, resourceful man he proves to be, William s growing interest in English ways may be the one challenge even her steadfast faith can't meet
William knows he couldn't ask for a more loyal wife-to-be. And the bravery that helps Rebecca tackle every obstacle makes her even more admirable. He simply won't ask her to sacrifice her deepest beliefs, no matter how right they are for each other. But the patience and care that crafted Rebecca's hope chest is somehow showing them there's more than one way prayers can be answered and hearts brought together forever...
The prayers and faith are respectfully illustrated, and Baker emphasizes the conviction required to hold to Amish traditions while surrounded by 21st century conveniences, providing an unusual and welcome level of insight into the characters inner lives. Publishers Weekly, Starred Review"

In the first Hope Chest of Dreams contemporary, Baker lays the familiar groundwork of a close-knit Amish community, but the heart of this romance goes far beyond stereotypes. Rebecca wants to marry her sweetheart, William, and start a life together in their hometown of Arthur, Ill., but all plans are put on hold when William finds out that his father, who lives outside their Amish community, is ill and needs his help. It’s a scandal for an unmarried Amish young woman to be left alone with her fiancé, much less to live under the same roof with him and his Englischer parents, but Rebecca is adamant that her place is by William’s side, officially married or not. In many romances featuring Amish couples, the focus is on the woman and how she navigates her faith, but here Rebecca is the bystander. She’s a little tempted by William’s parents’ lifestyle, but William is the one who struggles with his estrangement with his father and seriously considers leaving his insular community to enjoy the trappings of modern life. All Rebecca can do is give sincere advice and pray that William will return home with her. The prayers and faith are respectfully illustrated, and Baker emphasizes the conviction required to hold to Amish traditions while surrounded by 21st-century conveniences, providing an unusual and welcome level of insight into the characters’ inner lives. Agent: Tamela Hancock Murray, Steve Laube Agency. (Oct.)
