Description

All alone on the Kansas prairie, Summer Steadman has few options. With her husband and children lost to illness, she has no desire to continue on farther west to where she and her husband planned to build their future. Instead, she seeks employment in a small Mennonite community in order to be near the graves of her family.

Widower Peter Ollenburger, the local gristmill owner, needs someone to teach his young son. When he hears of a "learned woman" in town, he believes she is the answer to his prayers. He soon discovers, however, that helping this outsider may have troublesome consequences.

There is little this father will not do for his son, but as the boy begins to look at Summer as more than a teacher, Peter must make a choice. Does he marry this woman to give his son a new mother, or does he marry only for love?

Will Summer's broken heart ever be able to love again?

Customer Reviews

Waiting for Summer's Return

I really enjoyed Mrs. Sawyer's book. I come from a similar background. So it was delightful to read this story. It was the first book I read on my iPad. Reading a book on the iPad, a book with characters from a German background, the problems of close-knit communities relating to "outsiders", all made for an all around enjoyable reading experience for me.

Great!

Cant put it down!!

Waiting for Summer's Return

Awesome story. Loved it. Didn't want to put it down and disappointed when it ended. I was right there in that little house experiencing everything that was happening. Thank you for writing it.
