Esther has the opportunity to take a risk to find love. She thought she was never going to have children. She found a large family still grieving. Her loving care of everyone won their gratitude and hearts. All is brought to a head when her new husband faces what losing her really means to him. He says goodbye to his lost love and hello to his new love. I enjoyed how the author gave her characters depth and character. I loved the sewing too. Great reading.
