A Hand to HoldLarge Print - 2010
Ruth has finally become a teacher at the Amish schoolhouse, but her first day brings disappointment. The students want nothing to do with learning. Though she's discouraged, Ruth vows not to give up, at least, not yet. When Zach comes to fix a repair at the schoolhouse, he notices the young Amish teacher and the disorderly students. After seeing enough, he storms into the classroom and demands the students show Ruth respect. Satisfied he?s done a good deed, he waits around so Ruth can thank him. Instead she's furious that he interfered. Zach leaves, thinking she's still the snobby bookworm he knew from school. He doesn't have much use for learning. And now he has little use for Ruth. There's a very good reason why Zach hated school, and when Ruth learns about it, she sees him in a very different light. Ruth can help Zach if he'll let her. But to do so, he'll need to offer her his hand. Ruth Byler has never failed at anything, but Zach Ephraim is going to test her limits in every possible way.
