Harper Donovan should be experiencing the greatest joy in her life—Gott has finally answered her prayers and given her not one, but two healthy sons. However, soon after celebrating the birth of her twins, her husband contracts viral pneumonia and dies, leaving her alone to care for their dairy farm, home, and children. In addition to this pain, she also lives with constant pain from knowing that his death is her fault, due to the curse she’s suffered from all her life.
During one of her darkest nights, her first night alone with the babies and the farm, one of the children becomes ill and she must travel through a storm to find help. Like a ray of sunshine cutting through darkness, she meets Dr. Louis Parker, the handsome brother of one of her closest friends. The two discover an immediate bond, but Harper knows that she must push him away before her curse strikes him too.
“Ach, you are going to manage everything? How? Just like you managed to pop into this world, eating your own shveshtah? Or just like you managed in your marriage by pushing your mann to death? You, Harper Donovan, are a black sheep who takes bad luck where she goes.”
Tears burned in Harper’s eyes at her maemm’s words. Why did they always manage to get to her? Why did they do this every single time? “Then maybe you shouldn’t be anywhere near me, in case my bad luck eats you up as well, Maemm. I’m sure you want to be among your other kinner with shining luck and bright wuhnt,” she couldn’t keep herself from saying.
Dr. Louis Parker is waiting for a letter that will change his life, approval to work on a project he’s trained for over the past few years. Until it arrives, he decides to go and make a long overdue visit to his sister in Lancaster, the small Amish community where he was raised. A suddenly sick baby gets his attention almost immediately, and he feels an instant bond with the baby and his twin.
However, he also feels an intense attraction to their mother, a pretty widow with a constant dark cloud hanging over her head. When he learns that no other man has claimed her, he wants nothing more than to make her his own, to protect her little family from any harm. Soon the desired letter comes and he is presented with the opportunity of a lifetime, although it would mean giving up Harper and the babies he’s come to see as his own children.
Will Harper’s curse keep her from finding true love with the handsome doctor?
How will Louis decide whether to achieve his dreams or follow his heart?
