Grace's autistic son needs a life that is safe and consistent. Seth wants to leave his flirting days behind him and settle down. Deep in the heart of the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania, the beautiful and weary Amish widow Grace Beiler is not looking for a husband—especially one so much younger than she is. But handsome, and smitten, Seth Wyse stumbles upon a way to help her, and they marry to keep Grace's autistic son safe from his ill-intentioned uncle.
Grace soon discovers that she is far from immune to her young husband's experienced charm and realizes that her first marriage has not destroyed her capacity for love. Seth, meanwhile, seeks counsel from his older brother when playing the game of pursuing his wife becomes more dangerous to both his heart and his life than he ever imagined. Despite their troubles, God gives Grace and Seth a passion for family, and for each other, that teaches them the ways of the Master Quilter through the tangled and tender threads of their lives.
