After her fiancé, Daniel Beachy, died in a buggy accident, schoolteacher Ruth Yoder decided to move out of her parents’ home and into the house he’d built for their married life together. Ruth has lived alone for the past eleven years.
When David Hershberger, a widower, starts spending time with her, Ruth is surprised. David’s children are amazed, too, that their father is interested in their longtime neighbor.
Ruth hopes that she and David will become more than friends. But since David lost his wife, Irene, the love of his life and mother of their children, David can’t imagine anyone taking her place in his heart.
His children and Ruth’s sister also aren’t so sure that the relationship should develop.
Although Ruth prays that she might finally become a wife, she will follow whatever path God has chosen for her.

Wonderful series By Mary Rush on September 29, 2014Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase
I loved these three books and was hoping for another. This was a new author for me and really enjoyed her writing. I hope to find more of her stories . I think readers of Amish fiction will enjoy this book, too. The continuity of the stories were quite enjoyable. Thank you for this series.
Fleeting Hope By Teri Poole on September 18, 2014Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase
I truly enjoyed the 3rd book in the "Dreams of Plain Daughters". It was nice to see Ruth grow and find true love. Was also nice to hear about Rachel and Judith from the first 2 books and how their lives are changing. Mrs. Carver keeps you interested in the story. Am looking forward to book 4
A glimpse into a way different of life! By Janet C. Abneyon July 3, 2014 Format: Kindle Edition
What a wonderful book! Fleeting Hope takes you into the heart of the Amish life, helping the reader to understand the way of life being Amish. I love the way the characters live with Englishers. So true to life. I highly recommend this book for a feeling that you were actually there! Great story, Ms. Craver! I hope there will be a Book 4.
