The Farm Stand (Paperback)
Salina is engaged to the "perfect" man--except for the fact that Josiah feels more like a friend than a fianc . In this second installment of Amy Clipston's Amish Marketplace series, love begins to grow between Salina and Will, a Mennonite chef--and both must decide if it's a love worth fighting for.
Salina Petersheim runs her own booth at the Amish market, where she's known for having the freshest and most delicious produce in the area. Her family is very close, yet sometimes she tires of being compared to her older brother, Neil, a deacon who is married with two children. She also feels the pressure of having to be the perfect daughter for her mother and father, who is a bishop.
Salina has been dating Josiah for almost a year now, but he feels more like a friend than a boyfriend. Her parents approve of Josiah, who is a hardworking roofer. He's handsome and easy to talk to, but he just doesn't warm her heart the way she feels a boyfriend and future husband should. She secretly longs for more.
Along comes Will Zimmerman, a Mennonite chef who runs a restaurant located next door to the Amish market. Salina begins supplying the produce for his restaurant, and as they forge a business relationship, they both feel themselves falling in love. Salina tries to deny her feelings for Will since her father wants her to marry within the community.
Both Salina and Will feel stuck in their current relationships, but they cannot deny what they feel for each other. Will they follow their hearts or bow to the pressure of family? Or will God provide a surprising new road for them?
