Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Kate Weaver returns home to her family's farm in
Apple Lake, Wisconsin, battered and bruised and
carrying a secret. She is not yet baptized and has
spent the past year at a music conservatory in
Milwaukee, living among the English. Music is
Kate's passion, and she is very good, so she faces a
difficult choice: she must either give up her family
and home to pursue the gifts God has given her, or
come home and be baptized and give up on her
dreams. And with Nathaniel King, the handsome
neighbor boy she grew up with, paying attention to
her, the choice of whether to return to school in the
fall is even harder.
Kate wins a starring role in an upcoming opera, and
as she wrestles with pressure from her family and
her newfound feelings for Nathaniel, she is also
haunted by what happened to her just before she
left school: she fought to protect her friend against
an angry ex and landed the man in intensive care.
Will the consequences of that battle be the end of
everything she's ever wanted anyway? Will
Nathaniel wait around while she decides what God
really wants for her?
"Forever after in Apple Lake."
