From the Inside Flap
I needed time to think. Just for a while, I told myself. Truth be told, I was furious with my twin sister . . . and heartbroken. It was impossible not to keep replaying the horrid last moments between us. And I knew for sure Dat would be just sick over it, if he were still alive.
Sitting in the small, nearly empty bedroom, I recalled my father's fondness for Arie and me, and felt terribly alone.
From the start, Arie and I were more than sisters; we were best friends. Till now. I got up and paced the floor, staring at the moon through the window. How had it come to this?
Jah, I had plenty of good reasons to put some distance between my sister and myself. And then there were Mamma's heated words to me, as well.
There was no getting around it, no way to sugarcoat the truth. Arie Mae had betrayed me.|BEVERLY LEWIS penned her first story at age nine while living near Lancaster County Amish farmland, where she grew up. She welcomes her many reader-friends each day on Facebook and personally replies to fan mail. Lewis lives with her husband in Colorado near their family.

From the Back Cover
"Mandy, you are to inherit the farmhouse, including the business of the inn."
She could scarcely find her voice to respond. "Ach, this must be a mistake," she told him, shaking her head as she talked into the phone, feeling befuddled. "The house . . . and everything related to the inn . . . shouldn't that go to Arie Mae?"
After five years as an Englisher, Amanda Dienner is shocked to learn her mother has passed away and left her Lancaster County's most popular Amish bed-and-breakfast. What's more, the inn will only truly be hers if Mandy can successfully run it for twelve months. Reluctantly, Mandy accepts the challenge, no matter that it means facing the family she left behind--or that the inn's clientele expect an Amish hostess! Can Mandy fulfill the terms of her inheritance? Or will this prove a dreadful mistake?
"Lewis has done it once again. The charming setting and characters are just two of the many things to enjoy in her latest book. Hidden secrets, a dysfunctional family and redemption come together to remind the reader that Amish life isn't always simple."--RT Book Reviews
