The Gift of Hope

(The first book in the Unexpected Gifts series)
A novel by

A cheerful giver is twice blessed in this first novel in an Amish series by Kristen McKanagh.

Hope Beiler needs Aaron Kanagy's help. She is determined to give her sister a beautiful new bed frame as a wedding present, and Aaron is the best carpenter around. Unfortunately, she can't move past something he said when they were younger...and there's unexplained animosity between their fathers that makes interacting difficult.

Aaron wishes he could spend more time honing his woodworking craft, but his parents need help running their gift shop. When Hope approaches him with a solution that will allow them both to achieve their goals, he accepts. As they work together, Aaron finds himself captivated by Hope and an idea forms....

Unfortunately, Hope's already wounded pride means she doesn't give him the answer he expects. At the same time, her father discovers what they've been doing and forbids Hope from seeing the Kanagys anymore. As secrets from the past come to light, will Gotte be able to teach two strong-willed souls--and their families--that pride comes before every fall, but hope helps us rise again?
