Keys of Heaven

Keys of Heaven

The Whinburg Township Amish - Book 5

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

"Keys of Heaven is an absolutely charming addition to Adina Senft's delightful Healing Grace series featuring herbalist in training Sarah Yoder. This second installment expands on some of the storylines introduced in Herb of Grace while new story arcs keep this fabulous series fresh. While Keys of Heaven can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading the previous novel to fully appreciate the characters' personal growth. But the main reason I suggest reading them in order is because it is such a magnificent series!" --LibraryThing

About the Book

Sarah Yoder is learning to serve her Old Order Amish community as a Dokterfraa, creating teas and tinctures from the herbs in her garden and fields. But her latest patient isn’t responding to anything she concocts—a woman who, in Sarah’s mind, would be better off in any place but the one she has.

Meanwhile, Sarah’s relatives can’t resist doing some matchmaking between her and a prosperous visitor to their community. 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 department-store chain commissioned his work. The trouble is that they’re telling the world he’s 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.

The plant Sarah calls keys of heaven may grow in impossible places, but it’s not that easy for people to find the place where they really belong. So it’s quite a temptation to take matters into her own hands …

This is the second edition. First published by Hachette FaithWords in 2015.

What does Keys of Heaven mean?

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…

"This is a busy series with many characters, but the tension between Sarah and Henry takes center stage."
