Now that they've happily married off two of their grandchildren, Anna and Felty Helmuth are ready for their next matchmaking challenge. What better way to celebrate the most heartwarming of seasons--and make Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin, the place for unexpected love. . . A difficult marriage has left the Helmuths' widowed great-granddaughter, Beth, finished with wedlock. She's content to live with them and make a life for herself and her toddler son. But once she turns down handsome Tyler Yoder's proposal, it seems only fair to encourage him to find a suitable wife. Trouble is, his gentleness and generous ways are showing her how joyous a real meeting of hearts can be. . . After a failed courtship, Tyler thought the best he could hope for in a wife was mere companionship. But spirited Beth is the one he longs to protect, and hold close. Earning her trust is the hardest thing he's ever had to do. And soon, both will discover that forgiveness and understanding are gifts that only rekindled faith--along with the happiest of holidays--can bring. Praise for Jennifer Beckstrand's Huckleberry Hill "A delightful cast of characters in a story that overflows with Amish love and laughter." --Charlotte Hubbard "A delightful voice in Amish romance. Sweet and funny." --Emma Miller

Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin’s irrepressible eighty-something matchmakers Anna and Felty Helmuth are at it again. And this time they’re willing to rough it to get the job done . . . Mary Anne Neuenschwander knows she should be content with what Gotte has given her. She has a comfortable house, a fruitful farm, and a good, steady husband. But after nearly six years of marriage, she still longs for a baby. Yet her husband, Jethro, seems to care more about fishing than about his wife. Unable to bear Jethro’s indifference, Mary Anne moves into a tent in the woods where he won’t have to be bothered. But when her mammi and dawdi find out what she’s done, they’ll stop at nothing—including a little camping trip of their own—to help save their granddaughter’s marriage . . . Jethro’s greatest blessing is his beloved wife, Mary Anne. Nothing else in his life has turned out anywhere near the way he expected. Rather than burden Mary Anne with his disappointment, he shields her by spending less and less time at home and more time on the river. But when he finds that she’s moved out, he’s shocked. What will people think? What is Mary Anne thinking? And what clever plans are her grandparents hatching?. . . “A heart-warming story of faith, hope, and second chances. The story will captivate readers who love the Amish culture and enjoy an endearing romance.” –Amy Clipston, bestselling author of A Place at Our Table

There's nothing Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin’s irrepressible eighty-somethings Anna and Felty Helmuth like better than a challenge. And the chance to matchmake their feisty granddaughter is their most delightful task yet… Elsie Helmuth’s plain-spoken ways got her in trouble once before, so she needs to make a good impression at her new teaching job. But she's not about to let disabled student Wally Sensenig work below his potential. And she definitely won’t put up with his hot-headed older brother sabotaging her efforts, no matter how handsome he is. . . Sam is nearly at the end of his rope caring for his ailing, widowed mother, working their farm, and raising his siblings. He'll admit Elsie’s ideas are bringing Wally out of his angry shell—but why does she have to be as stubborn as she is pretty? Yet as it turns out, Elsie has taught Sam something about himself as well. And he’ll do whatever it takes to make up for his mistakes—and win her heart forever.

When it comes to matchmaking, Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin’s unstoppable octogenarians Anna and Felty Helmuth never seem to run out of opportunities—or grandchildren... Reuben Helmuth is plenty bitter. John King, his best friend—or so he thought—is engaged to the girl Reuben loved. Humiliated, Reuben flees from Ohio to his grandparents’ home on Huckleberry Hill, where he knows he’ll find comfort. He’s enjoying wallowing in his misery—until John’s sister, Fern, shows up. She won’t stop pestering Reuben about forgiveness—or trying to help him find love again. Yet Fern's efforts only reawaken Reuben’s long-buried feelings—for her… With her brother too ashamed to face Reuben, it’s fallen to Fern to help mend fences. But as she and the Helmuths do all they can—even organizing a knitting club event filled with eligible girls—it may take one more challenge to inspire Reuben to forget his heartache, recognize his own blunders, and embrace the true love that’s right in front of him… Praise for Jennifer Beckstrand and her Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series “Beckstrand continues to bring unexpected and heart-melting plotlines to this outstanding series.” –RT Book Reviews “Full of kind, sincere characters struggling with the best ways to stay true to themselves and their beliefs.” --Publishers Weekly “A delightful voice in Amish romance.

Die wundervolle Geschichte einer Frau, die ihren Traum vom eigenen Antiquitätenladen verwirklicht Aus alten Möbeln kleine Schätze zaubern. Von Kindesbeinen an hat Teddi davon geträumt und dann wird dieser Traum eines Tages Wirklichkeit: ihr eigener Laden. Ein Roman über eine Frau, die ihr Glück mit eigenen Händen zu greifen weiß. Schönste Unterhaltung!Als eines Sommertags Teddis Schicksal in Gestalt von Mr. Palmer, einem alten Antiquitätenhändler aus Charleston, auf der Farm ihrer Eltern in Kentucky auftaucht, dauert es nicht mehr lange und Teddi macht sich mit ihrem klapprigen Wagen und wenig Geld gegen den Willen ihrer Familie auf nach Charleston, South Carolina. Dort arbeitet sie viele Jahre in Mr. Palmers Antiquitätenhandel, immer in der Hoffnung, den Laden zu übernehmen, wenn Mr. Palmer in Rente geht. Doch es kommt alles anders: Der alte Mann stirbt plötzlich und der schöne Laden soll an Fremde verkauft werden. Aber Teddi gibt keine Ruhe, bis sie einen Weg findet, Mr. Palmers Laden selbst zu kaufen. Das liebenswerte Personal wird wieder eingestellt und »Teddis Laden« wird einer der schönsten Antiquitätenläden in ganz Charleston. Ihr Glück ist vollkommen, wären da nicht Miz Poteet, die fast täglich die wertvollsten Stücke klaut, und deren arroganter Sohn. Außerdem lässt Teddi das Schicksal ihres Bruders Josh nicht los, der seit Jahren spurlos verschwunden ist. Doch beide Geschichten nehmen überraschende Wendungen und verändern Teddis Leben von Grund auf.
