About the book:
A heartwarming tale of discovering love right in front of you
Miriam Troyer has had a secret crush on Mark Byler since she was a teenager, but she knows they can never have a relationship: Mark is a big-city attorney and an Englischer. Her Amish community is too far removed from all he knows-and she loves her quiet way of life.
Mark has always loved his visits to his grandfather's farm, but he's convinced the Amish life isn't for him. There's so much of the world to see and experience, and the excitement of his successful law practice can't be matched by the slow pace of life found back home in the country.
But when things go wrong and his firm distances itself from him to try to save themselves, Mark finds himself back at his grandfather's farm. Could life in this simple world be worth living after all? Especially when the teenager he remembers has grown into a woman that could be his future. Suddenly, these two people whose lives seem so far apart may get a chance to really see each other for the first time.

Barbara Cameron's latest Amish fiction novel, "Seeds of Hope" is such a beautiful story and just a nice book to read that will leave you with a smile. Miriam and Mark spent time together when Mark would spend summers on his grandfather's farm and Miriam found herself falling in love with him. However, that was years ago when they were teenagers and Mark is living such a different life than her that she knows there could never be a future, mostly due to the fact that he is not Amish or living an Amish life. Suddenly, Mark finds his life veering on a different course and he is back at his grandfather's farm and meets up again with Miriam. What really is the course he wants to take in life and what really matters?
This is such a beautiful story of God's timing and how that is always best. I really enjoyed the characters and their interactions and seeing the relationships develop between characters. Also, the portrayal of the Amish lifestyle and the comparison to what Mark was living, as an attorney and the comparisons of the lifestyles. This is a great book and I am looking forward to more in this series.
