The tapestry of grace : a novel / Kim Vogel Sawyer.

Sawyer, Kim Vogel, (author.).


"A Mennonite widower struggling to raise his mischievous boys becomes the unwilling target of the well-intentioned women's benevolent society in this heartwarming romance inspired by historical events--from the bestselling author of Freedom's Song"-- Provided by publisher.
With classes paused for the planting season, Alexandertol's schoolteacher Augusta Dyck is glad for some meaningful work to occupy her time. She even knows exactly who their town's benevolence society should help quiet, reserved widower Konrad Rempel and his young twin sons. Konrad Rempel, however, is adamant that he doesn't want help. His boys are mischievous but good-hearted. And though Konrad may be struggling, he doesn't want anyone else sticking their nose in and telling him what his sons need. Or what he needs. For her part, the charity's founder Martina Krahn is relieved to have a reason to spend time outside her unhappy home. It even occurs to her that she may, through her work, encounter a boy in need of a family and so find a son for her husband since they have no children of their own. Augusta, Konrad, and Martina each have deep needs and desires, and each imagines how they should be by reaching out or by being left alone. But God, indeed, knows best. Will the competing agendas of Alexandertol's residents prevent them from receiving God's help? Or will the members of this small Mennonite community find the answers to their prayers in the very last place they expect - in one another?
