|| Theres no one quite like Hope Ladley. A veritable dandelion in the wind, she blows from one farm to the next, roaming the Texas countryside as an itinerant cook. When she rides her mule, Hattie, onto the Stauffer farm, Hope knows this is the place the Lord wants her to be. Jakob Stauffer, though grateful for a cook to assist his pregnant sister and young daughter through harvest, is baffled by Hopes unconventional methods as she gets things done around the farm. Yet he cant deny the way her sunny disposition and unstinting love make changes of a different kindeven within his own heart. When harvest is over, will Hope return to her wandering ways or embrace the dream of forevermore?
