Christmas Admirer$13.99Add to cart
Benaiah Troyer has loved Susanna King for as long as he can remember, but when his parents died in an accident a year ago, he broke up with her–for her own good. After all, he was now the sole caregiver for his three younger sisters. What woman would want to put up with that? Still, against his better judgment, he can’t help leaving her a gift now and then, anonymously addressing her name in big block print, just to catch a smile. Roses one month, maple syrup candy another; and maybe this time, something special for Christmas. //
Susanna has never gotten over losing Benaiah, but now the clock is ticking. Her father is selling his glass-blowing business, remarrying in January, and moving to Iowa with his bossy wife-to-be. Angry and frustrated, Susanna realizes she’s left with three options: one, go with Daed to his new home with a new mom; two, stay in Jamesport, Missouri, as an old maid; or, three, the best yet, flush out her mysterious secret admirer. But how could she be with anyone else when her heart is still with Benaiah?

An Amish girl who longs to travel…
Rachel Miller dreams of traveling beyond her Amish existence in Jamesport, Missouri. To satisfy her wanderlust, she sends letters to the people she reads about in the Budget, the Amish newspaper, and asks that they consider mailing her a simple postcard in return. Her collection of correspondence from various Amish communities isn’t as exciting as traveling, but it keeps her occupied, especially when one of her communicants routinely responds. His name is David Lapp, of Seymour, Missouri, and she soon feels as if he knows her better than her own beau. Too bad she is already promised to Obadiah.
An injured young man on the mend…
Originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, David Lapp moved to Seymour, Missouri, as part of a “man swap.” The transition was going fine until a serious buggy accident landed him in the hospital, where he nearly died following surgery on his broken leg. After extensive therapy, he has lingering mobility problems and is still struggling to find his place in the world. When he realizes that his spirited pen pal, Rachel Miller, lives in a community where closed buggies are used, he decides on a whim to move there, hopeful for a fresh start.
A shared desire to break from rigid tradition…
Rachel never expected to meet David Lapp in person. Even less did she anticipate his intentions-to court her. As their friendship moves from the written page to in-person encounters, they discover that the chemistry in their correspondence was real. But what will this mean for the future? Following their hearts-and God’s leading-will require no small amount of sacrifice and significant life changes.
