Description of this Book

From the highly acclaimed author of The Outcast and The Alliance, which New York Times bestselling author Lisa Wingate called a book that begs to be savored, comes an engrossing novel about marriage and motherhood, loss and moving on. When Ruth Neufeld's husband and father-in-law are killed overseas, she and her mother-in-law, Mabel, travel with Ruth's young daughters to bury her husband near his childhood home. She hopes his Wisconsin Mennonite community will be a quiet place to grieve and piece together next steps. Ruth and her family are welcomed by Elam, her husband's cousin, who invites them to stay at his cranberry farm through the harvest. Sifting through fields of berries and memories of a marriage that was broken long before her husband died, Ruth finds solace in the beauty of the land and healing through hard work and budding friendship. She also encounters the possibility of new love with Elam, whose gentle encouragement awakens hopes and dreams she thought she'd lost forever. But an unexpected twist threatens to unseat the happy ending Ruth is about to write for herself. On the precipice of a fresh start and a new marriage, Ruth must make an impossible decision: which path to choose if her husband isn't dead after all.
