A Stranger's GiftBook - 2011
Hester Detlef, local Mennonite volunteer coordinator for disaster relief In Pinecraft, Florida, defied the Old Order Mennonite tradition of limited education to get her college degree. Still single, Hester is well aware that her father has attempted to match her with Samuel Longbecker. but she has no feelings for the carpenter--or any other man. When a devastating hurricane roars across the barrier islands just off the Gulf coast of Florida, John Steiner is swept in Hester's path. Due to his stubbornness to evacuate his cluster of ramshackle buildings at the onset of the hurricane, John is badly injured. And after being formerly shunned by his Amish community, he's now jobless, homeless, and faithless. As Hester offers a helping hand, will John have the patience to put up with the Mennonite do-gooder who seems determined to restore his faith, rebuild his property, and renovate his heart? And will Hester find love amid the debris?
