Rachel has three dreams and she keeps them written in a journal that stays in her hope chest made by Old Sam. One of her dreams deals with her horse Cinnamon and becomes especially dear to her when Cinnamon becomes ill. Cinnamon's illness brings Jarred Zimmerman to the Kauffman farm. Jarred is not Amish and yet he and Rachel connect in a way that baffles them both. One of the connections is Cinnamon, Jarred was there when Cinnamon was born and nursed him through an early illness. Now both Rachel and Jarred are committed to nurse Cinnamon through this illness--one that has taken every horse it has reached.
Lisa Jones Baker has put together another Amish winner. This one is a bit too syrupy sweet for me, but the writing is impeccable and the people are quite likable and the problems they face, they face them with aplomb. The solutions the characters achieve are well thought out and well implemented.
Five Stars, Two Thumbs Up, and a buggy ride with a healthy horse.
