Annie Mast and Levi Miller were childhood best friends until his father was shunned. Now, 10 years later, Levi returns to Arthur, Il, and he and Annie discover their bond is as strong as ever. Soon they begin imagining a future together, but that's unlikely to happen. Levi is part of the English world, and Annie is Amish. But together, with love on their side, they may just find their way to an answered prayer.
Moments later, the wind died down and Annie and Levi reclaimed their original seats on the large stones. She sensed an uncertainty in his demeanor from the way he fidgeted with his hands. He kept wringing them together; finally, he decided on a place to rest them. On his thighs. What on earth was wrong? Was he sick?
When he spoke his voice was firm but emotional. “I’m okay. Just a little…nervous.”
He faced her. When she’d glimpsed his fingers, she’d noticed they were shaking. Their faces were so close, her nose nearly touching his. His warm breath fanned her eyelashes.
“Annie, we’ve always been honest with each other.”
To her surprise, his voice suddenly sounded soft and uncertain. What on earth was he about to tell her?
