Journey Down a Quiet Lane in Lancaster County Where Love and Heartache and Friendship and Healing Meet

When Joel and Shani Beck arrive at their new home, they're looking for peace. Shani is thrilled to have Joel back from Iraq, but he needs time to heal, and the quiet of Lancaster seems just the place. They can't imagine any trouble with their Amish neighbors, the Lehmans, but things get off to a rocky start when their son is involved in an accident that injures one of the Lehman boys.

Eve Lehman has run her brother's household ever since the death of his wife, but Tim's a stern patriarch. Despite his protests, she's drawn to the new neighbor, Shani, and the two begin to form a strong friendship forged on faith and family. Things seem like they've quieted down until Joel's single and handsome army friend Charlie catches Eve's attention--a man unlike any Eve has ever met. Suddenly life for both families becomes more complicated than any of them could have ever imagined.

About the Author

Leslie Gould is the #1 bestselling and Christy Award winning author of twenty novels. She enjoys Church history, traveling, and any kind of research. She received her MFA from Portland State University in 2009 and teaches writing on the college level.

Leslie knew she wanted to write fiction by the time she was in the sixth grade, but as she grew older she pursued other things instead, such as majoring in history and communications, working as a museum curator, a public relations specialist, and as a magazine editor. Once she finally started writing fiction, it was another ten years until she sold her first novel. By that time Leslie had been married for nearly 20 years and had four children of her own to read to.

In the decade since her first contract Leslie has written nineteen novels, from Beyond the Blue, a story about international adoption set in Vietnam, to Courting Cate, a retelling of Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew” set in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

No matter what she writes, Leslie aims to reveal truths about God’s love, beauty, and redemptive work in our lives. Her goal is to connect more deeply to God, family, and friends through her writing. Her hope is that her stories encourage readers to deepen their own connections too. Leslie and her husband, Peter, have four children and live in Portland, Oregon.
