Introduction

Have you ever awoken to find the life you?ve always wanted, to be a life of always wanting? A life of always chasing? Then one day you stop in your tracks, questioning what it is you are wanting and chasing? And you realize a harsh truth: you?ve been running blind for years.

In two short weeks, that's what workaholic Cole Jansen discovers. Still single at thirty-two, he's more focused on managing his clients? money and his own material success than he is with any woman who gets close, or reconciling his estranged relationship with his parents.

But when his father's ill health leads him from urban Cedar Rapids, Iowa to the tiny rural community of Harmony, Minnesota for a rare visit, his myopic life is suddenly questioned when he meets Rachel Miller, a young Amish woman committed to her church and family ? and conflicted by forbidden dreams of meeting him, the man in the pictures she ritualistically dusts each week as part of her cleaning duties at his parents? home.

No sooner than such an unlikely courtship begins to flourish, a series of tragedies strike, and commitment and character must be confronted, bringing each of their paths to a crossroads and shaking the foundations of their lives. Will the threat of excommunication and career suicide be too great? Or is there hope for such an improbable love as this?

My Father's House, a love story of truth, tenderness and tragedy that will tug at your heart-strings.
