Becca Weaver quits teaching high school English in the city after she inherits her great-aunt Opal’s farm in the little town of Haasenville in the Pennsylvania Dutch country. Running seven acres is an impossible job when you don’t have the know-how, so Becca places a want ad for a farmhand willing to work for room and board. At first, Paul seems to be the answer to her prayers—he knows things about farming that Becca can’t begin to understand—and she finds herself falling for him. But a local businessman's insistence on buying her land, the Haasenvillers’ endless meddling, and secrets from Paul’s past threaten to break Becca's heart and send her back to her solitary existence in the city.
