A choice between two brothers – which would she choose?
That was the question Mary King faced. For years she’d had a secret admiration for David Lapp who was a carpenter at her father’s business. When David’s father passes away, he and Mary speak for the first time, and she hopes it won’t be the last.
David found the moment just as momentous. Although he had liked Mary for years, his innate shyness always kept him from pursuing her. Eventually, David gathers the courage to attend a Sunday singing with one goal in mind, to ask Mary to ride home with him afterward.
But David’s brother, John, isn't going to let that happen. Making his brother's life as miserable as possible become John’s life goal. When he notices his brother's interest in Mary King, he decides to court her instead.
Will Mary fall for John’s less than sincere attentions or will she wait for David to finally ask her to court? How much longer can John harbor hate for his bruder and where did the resentment come from? Will David eventually escape his bruder’s wrath? Will true love finally find a path?
