Back Cover:

For as long as she can remember, Trina Muller has had a special affinity with animals. When the local vet, Dr. Groening, recognizes Trina's passion and abilities, he assures her that she can take over his practice when she becomes a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. But that's a career of which her parents heartily disapprove. Can God be so cruel as to give Trina the gift of healing without also giving her the avenue to use it?

Graham Ortmann loves Trina, but when he finds out about her plans to attend college, he's outraged. How can he marry someone who is determined to step outside the dictates of the Old Order Mennonite fellowship?

When a young man with a D.M.V. in hand approaches Dr. Groening about purchasing his practice, Trina's dreams seem to be crumbling right in front of her. Is this a sign from God that she isn't meant to be a vet after all?


Kim Vogel Sawyer writes some of the best inspirational romances I've read to date. There's a gentle spirit in these pages that woos the reader on. The story didn't go quite where and how I expected it to, which is another plus for Sawyer. She always manages to surprise me.

Trina struggles with obeying her family whom she loves and the fellowship that she truly wants to help and not leave, yet she believes God has called her to become a vet. What transpires is a journey of trusting God with her dreams and discovering his will for her. Heart-wrenching, Blessings received a high recommendation from this reviewer.
