Many lives were changed the day a fire burned down Faith Community Church, devastating the small town of Sugarcreek, Ohio. Now a young Amish widow, Lydia Gruber faces an uncertain future. Her husband, a craftsman and volunteer firefighter, always took care of everything, keeping her isolated from others in their community. Without anyone or any skills, how will she survive? With the death of her beloved aunt Rose in the fire, single mom Jessica Holtz inherits Rose’s Knit One Quilt Too cottage. Though determined to keep the shop open in her aunt’s memory, she doesn’t know the first thing about knitting and quilting and begins to see her aunt’s dream slip through her fingers. When Liz Cannon lost her dear friend Rose, she also lost her partner in the Secret Stitches Society—the name they gave themselves while delivering gifts of hope to troubled folks in the dark of night. Liz convinces Jessica to keep the anonymous society going, despite the younger women’s inadequacy with knitting and sewing needles. But soon Liz has problems of her own as the life she has rebuilt for herself begins to crumble again. When Liz and Jessica choose Lydia for their first mission, the three women cross paths and form an unlikely friendship in the aftermath of tragedy. As they walk together through triumph and heartbreak—through grief and new chances at love—they begin to discover that with friends by your side, a stitch of hope can be found anywhere.

The fascinating story of the birth and development of a rural American community from its origins at the turn of the nineteenth century to the years that followed the Civil War. Drawing on newspapers, account books, and reminiscences, the author of the prize-winning Women and Men on the Overland Trail vividly portrays the lives of the prairie’s inhabitants—Indians, pioneers, farming men and women—and adds a compelling new chapter to American social history. "This is a book for anyone who has ridden down a country road and, hearing the wind whistle through the cornstalks, wondered about the Indians and pioneers who listened to that sound before him."—Ron Grossman, Chicago Tribune "Every chapter, almost every page, contains new ideas or throws new light on old ones, by means of a wealth of detail and clarity of though which brings the past alive again."—Hugh Brogan, The Times Literary Supplement "A notably successful example of the new work being done on the social history of rural America…. Faragher has constructed a vivid portrait of everyday life as well as an analysis of how the community developed and changed."—George M. Fredrickson, New York Review of Books "Here, succinctly set out, is the American prairie experience."—Publishers Weekly "Sugar Creek is a major new interpretation of America’s rural past."—Howard R. Lamar, Yale University Winner of the 1986 Society for the History of the Early American Republic Award John Mack Faragher is associate professor of history at Mount Holyoke College.

Though his family is part of Winnie's tight-knit Amish community, Samuel left years earlier to pursue a university education. Through conversations, and Samuel's dedication to her recovery, a friendship forms.

When Anna decides it's time to leave her abusive boyfriend, she doesn't know where to turn. Rob has completely won over her parents, and the entire community, with his good looks and smooth charm. Only Anna has seen his dark side. Desperate, she runs to the only place she's ever felt completely safe—the Amish Brenneman Bed and Breakfast, where Anna met life-long friend Katie Brenneman. The family welcomes her in, and with few questions asked allows her to stay, dressed in Plain clothing, and help around the inn. Katie's older brother Henry is the only one who doesn't take too kindly to the intrusion. He tries to ignore Anna, knowing no good would ever come from caring for an Englisher like her. But as he gets to know Anna, he discovers her good heart and is surprised with her readiness to accept their lifestyle. The more time Anna spends with the Amish, the more she feels she's found a true home. But how can she deny the life she left behind? And will her chance for happiness be stolen away by the man from her past?

This set includes books 25-30 in the Sugar Creek Gang Series: The Ghost Dog, The White Boat Rescue, The Brown Box Mystery, The Watermelon Mystery, The Trapline Thief, and The Blue Cow. In The Ghost Dog, a fine pet funeral for the finest dog that ever lived in the Sugar Creek Gang territory kicks off this exciting adventure. But when Bill hears a mysterious dog howling in the middle of the night, he wonders if a ghost dog is roaming the woods. And later, in those same woods, strange lights in the sky cause the Gang to wonder if a UFO has come to visit. Solve these nighttime mysteries with the Sugar Creek Gang and discover the answer to this burning question: Will my pet be in heaven? In The White Boat Rescue, the Vida Eterna fishing boat is racing up and down Sugar Creek and leaving excitement in its wake. John Fenwick, a missionary to Costa Rica, and his wife are spending a month in the new Sugar Creek missionary cabin. New rifles and fishing tackle boxes lead to some life-or-death adventures for Gang. Come along with the Sugar Creek Gang and learn the importance of swimming upstream with your life, rather than floating downstream like an old, dead fish. In The Brown Box Mystery, two leather-jacketed motorcycle gang members ride into town and steer the Sugar Creek Gang into a dangerous adventure. Two mysterious boxes, one from Palm Tree Island and the other offering an anonymous reward, are at the heart of the mystery. Before it's solved, the Gang find themselves held hostage in Old Man Paddler's cabin. Join the Sugar Creek Gang as they see the love of a father in action, the kind that will track down a son who has gone astray. In The Watermelon Mystery, a grocery store robbery occurs. Then, somebody steals Bill Collins's prize watermelon. There's thievery going on near Sugar Creek! And Bill is sure that the Till boys have something to do with it! Poetry and Bill start collecting clues. They find a map of Sugar Creek territory hidden in a floating watermelon and encounter strange happenings in the middle of the night. Join the Sugar Creek Gang as they learn not to jump to conclusions, for some things are not as they appear. In The Trapline Thief, someone is stealing muskrats from Circus's traps. When the Sugar Creek Gang follows Circus's hunting dog, Old Jay, they discover much more than a raccoon trapped in a tree. This Indian Summer adventure includes Halloween pranks, a wild truck ride through an apple orchard, and some genuine fistfights. Everything isn't always as it appears to be on the surface as the Sugar Creek Gang learns that honesty is more than just the best policy... it's the way God commands us to live. In The Blue Cow, Bill and Poetry catch the biggest fish ever to swim in Sugar Creek and then are nearly run over by a stampeding blue cow. Shorty Long's fence-crossing cow brings all kinds of adventures to the Sugar Creek Gang. Bill and Shorty mix it up several times, but a crisis with Shorty's blue cow brings the two boys together. Experience the power of prayer as Bill and his mother fight to save the life of Shorty's blue cow.
