She dreams of a wedding under her family's apple orchard when the blossoms are fragrant. When Cole Newton, a man from Washington, is hired by Maizie's father to help in the orchards, Maizie feels replaced in the family. Then, disaster threatens, and Cole saves the family from ruin, proving to Maizie that a living man is worth ten of those found in her books. Still, her desire to be needed by those she loves keeps her from truly giving her emotions to Cole. Can these two set aside their personal pain to find a love only God could have created?
