Nathaniel Zook returns to his Amish community of Paradise Springs after inheriting his grandparents' alpaca farm--but knows nothing of the furry creatures. Only one person can teach him what he needs to know to save his family's homestead. But his childhood best friend, Esther Stoltzfus, still the pretty tomboy he remembers, is unusually reluctant. Nathaniel suggests the schoolteacher bring along some students so they can all learn together. Suddenly, the sweet alpacas and a dear young orphaned boy are bringing Nathaniel and Esther closer than ever. Yet he'll have to risk sharing all that's in his heart to form the family he always dreamed of.
