An Antique Store Becomes a Place of Healing for Broken Hearts

Welcome to Walnut Creek, Ohio, where Orley and Lois Troyer own an antique store they call “Memory Keepers.” Though knowledgeable in antiques and their repair, their real talent is in mentoring folks who are hurting and don’t even know it. Enter Jeff, a restaurateur, and Rhonda, a hotel manager, who recently moved to Amish country for the slow pace, but the change of scenery puts even more stress on their already strained marriage. Will an antique sled be the last straw, or will it lead to unexpected revelations and the fulfillment of dreams?

Monday morning when the alarm buzzed by her side of the bed, it was all Rhonda could do to pull herself upright and turn it off. She’d had trouble getting to sleep last night, thinking about the home she and Jeff had looked at in Walnut Creek. So many questions and concerns had encompassed her thoughts, making it hard to come up with a decision about whether they should make an offer on the house.

Rhonda yawned as she sat remembering their drive into Walnut Creek. It was a quaint place with small businesses dotting the area, but there were many homes spaced out on large properties.

If they did get the home they’d seen, some of their extra down time would go into taking care of a yard, which they weren’t used to doing. Due to her job, Rhonda’s time was limited, and she’d have to adjust her new routine to include the longer commute. Even so, she couldn’t help thinking about how nice the rural countryside looked and that maybe yard work could become a way to de-stress.

Rhonda couldn’t get over seeing the Plain people riding in those little black buggies drawn by horses. She tapped her chin. They sure live simply in the way they get around and even how they dress. I wonder what it would be like to get to know some of them.

    Can’t wait to read this book and most definitely on my TBR list. Wanda introduced me to the Amish genre and it’s still one of my favorites. Sounds amazing and I can’t wait to dive into reading it.

    I’m curious about the antique sled. Orley and Lois Troyer sound like a very interesting couple.
