The Cedar Chest
NOW FOR SALE IN PAPERBACK AND KINDLE E-BOOK.
Carrie Hughes is a widowed wife and mom, living in a remote Michigan town and raising her children, Nora and Gabriel, alone after her firefighter husband Tim dies on duty. As she grieves, she reaches out to befriend an older widow, Judy, and takes a trip to visit her in her Wisconsin town.
David Hensel, a salesman at his family's quaint Amish furniture shop, lost his wife to cancer two years before. He works long hours, still paying off her medical bills while raising his young son.
These two strong but hurting people try to live out their Christian faith in spite of the pain of losing a spouse. When Carrie and David meet, they share an immediate bond and a romantic spark. As they begin a long-distance correspondence, they learn to laugh again- and love again.
