Heaven Sent, by Becca Fisher (author), Stephanie Richardson (narrator)

Kevin MacGorman, January 2020 (original publication February 2013)

Miriam is the next in line of the daughters of Samuel and Emma, and she's ready to marry the love of her life. She thinks she knows who that is--Jed, a neighbor she's known all her life. Unfortunately, instead of asking her to marry him, he asks her to go to the city with him--essentially on rumspringa, though the word isn't used. He's not ready to settle down yet; he wants to find out what the wider world has to offer before making that decision.

Miriam doesn't share that desire, and remembers the pain it caused her family when her oldest sister, Abigail, went to Philadelphia and married there. Jed can't understand her refusal, and they part unhappily. Miriam can't imagine that someone else will come into her life.

Then Daniel, a carpenter from another Amish community, moves to their town, and she starts to think she was wrong.

Then Jed comes back.

What is Miriam going to do? How can she decide where her happiness, and her values truly lie?

It's another sweet, charming story, with a young woman making her choices about values, love, and happiness. And in this case in particular, about her own value.

A very nice little story.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the publisher, and am reviewing it voluntarily.
