This book brings back the family from Mary Ellis' previous books.

This is also the story of Phoebe and Eli. Phoebe convinces her parents to go on a trip to New York where she meets Eli. They decide to work on a children's book together, where he tells the story and she draws the pictures. There are many obstacles and as both are loners try to put a relationship together. I love how the library plays a part in this book.

Besides this story, I will honestly say I got confused on who everyone else was and where they related to the story, to me it jumped around a lot and I had a hard time following it sometimes. But it was great to catch up with all her past characters.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0736944877, Paperback)

During a rumschpringe visit to Niagara Falls, Phoebe Miller meets Eli Riehl, a young man who charms her--and everyone else--with his exceptional storytelling ability. When Phoebe sketches scenes to illustrate one of his tales, Eli encourages her incredible talent, and together they embark on a lofty and unlikely business venture for two young Amish people--writing and illustrating a children's book.

Eli's kindness and appeal extend beyond his knack for words to reach inside Phoebe's heart. But he is an only son with five sisters, and when his father suffers a heart attack, Eli gives up his writing to assume responsibility on the farm. Though willing to abandon his dream of becoming an author, he won't give up his beloved Phoebe.

Can their love for a good story develop into something that lasts forever, or will Phoebe's deep-seated fear of desertion stand in their way?
