It was a well-laid plan—but it wasn’t her plan…
It’s all her grandmother’s fault. For the last few months, Abigail Stoltzfus has helped her father with his genealogical research, hoping that breaking through a client’s brick wall would also break his melancholy. But now her intrusive grandmother has set her sights on marrying off Abigail and insists she come to Stoney Ridge, where there is a plethora of eligible bachelors.
Except that Mammi is mistaken. There are no eligible bachelors in Stoney Ridge, barring one, and he’s all wrong. Dane Glick has the wrong last name and the wrong relatives—including the bishop who is at odds over a church matter with Abigail’s uncle, minister David Stoltzfus.
As the conflict grows, setting family against family, it’s becoming clear that the path to a solution may lead to a Quieting—a removal of a church leader. But for which one? And when Abigail stumbling onto a curious connection during her genealogical research, it could help David solve one problem—but will it create another?
