Lil Landis's dreams lie outside the Conservative Mennonite world of her childhood. While she hopes to turn her flair for cooking into a career as head chef, her father expects her to settle down to a life as a wife and mother. As Lil struggles against expectations, her once-clear plans become muddled with problems--from her mother's depression to her family's failing farm. Then Fletch Stauffer, a veterinary student begins working at the Landis farm, hoping to fulfill some goals of his own...that don't include falling for the spunky Lil. Will determination cloud their thoughts until their ambitions--and love--disappear?
