Lucy has always dreamed of true love.
There are only a few things that Lucy Esch wants out of life, true love, a pet to call her own and to talk with her God. With such simple hopes who would imagine that things could go so terribly wrong?
Lucy is the youngest of her siblings and the only one not married. Her parents decide it is time that she started courting and arrange for Jonas Schrock, a quiet newcomer to their community to call on her.
Lucy runs away into a coming storm and finds a bedraggled kitten, injured and almost starving. Can she save its life and will she find her true love, or are her problems and heartache just beginning?
