The protective one

Gray, Shelley Shepard
"Shelley Shepard Gray weaves a moving and unforgettable exploration of love and friendship. The tragic and untimely death of an old friend has made Elizabeth Anne rethink not only her priorities but her courtship with David, her longtime neighbor and suitor. Though he's Mennonite like herself and has her parents' approval, she feels that a spark is missing. Desperate for a change, she breaks things off -- wondering if, perhaps, she's the one who's missing a spark. When her family becomes upset with her decision, E.A. turns to her friends for support. One of them is Will, a man with a good heart who has always been there for her. As the two bond over their shared struggle to navigate a future that everyone else seems to have figured out, they are surprised to realize that they have feelings for each other. But E.A.'s world takes a sudden turn when she realizes that she's not the only one struggling -- Marta, one of her sewing students, is in desperate need of protection. With the aid of Will and several other friends, Elizabeth Anne begins a journey that is more difficult and rewarding than she could have ever imagined ... one that ultimately enables her to find everything she's been searching for. In this latest installment in the Walnut Creek series ... Shelley Shepard Gray pens a powerful and poignant tale of friendship, courage, and love."--
