take over Dr. Groening's practice when he retires. However, being Old Order Mennonite, neither her parents or the church would approve of the college education that she would need.

Graham Ortmann loves Trina, but he is indignant when she shares her plans of attending college. He feels she should be content to be a wife and mother, how can he marry a woman who won't follow the dictates of their Old Order fellowship?

Trina feels she can have it all; why would God give her the gift of healing sick and injured animals if he did not intend for her to use it? She must find a way to convince her family, Graham, and the fellowship to allow her to follow her heart.

I liked the character of Trina from the moment I "met" her in the first book of the series, and it was a nice wrap up of the series to end it with her story. Of the three books, this is probably the only one of the series that works as a stand alone story, though Beth and Marie, whose stories are told in the first two books, (Bygones, and Beginnings) do make a few appearances in this one.
