Keys of Heaven

Keys of Heaven

Book 5 in the Whinburg Township Amish series

Red valerian, sometimes called “keys of heaven” or “Jupiter’s beard,” often grows in rocky places where other plants don’t flourish, such as in stone walls or against fences. But adverse conditions can produce a beautiful plant, brightening hard places with its sprays of red flowers. There are people like this, too. They grow in hard places where others wouldn’t flourish—staying where God has put them, even if they might not have chosen to grow there. But they stay because they’re needed, because their spirit transforms the hard place and makes it beautiful...

About the Book

While a young Dokterfraa learns to heal the body, the Great Physician heals the heart …

Sarah Yoder is learning to help her Old Order Amish community as a Dokterfraa, creating teas and tinctures using the herbs she grows. But her latest patient can’t seem to be healed by anything in Sarah’s garden—a woman who, in Sarah’s mind, would flourish anywhere but in the place she lives. 

Meanwhile, Sarah’s relatives are doing a little matchmaking between her and a visiting Amish man. She should be willing for God to show her His choice of partner … and not allow her friendship with her neighbor, Henry Byler, to grow into anything more. Henry has seen some success as a potter since a major store commissioned his work. The trouble is that they want to market him as Amish. Though he was raised in the faith and now lives in Amish country, he never joined church—and doesn’t plan to. Which also means that, despite the attraction between them, he must keep his distance from Sarah. 

But what happens when Sarah and Henry find themselves drawn together to help an Englisch runaway? The plant Sarah calls Keys of Heaven may grow in impossible places, but it’s not so easy for people to find their own place. So it’s quite a temptation to take matters into her own hands …
