Huckleberry Summer by Jennifer Beckstrand

With one of their grandchildren happily married, Anna and Felty Helmuth are ready for their next matchmaking success. Because there’s nothing more rewarding than sparking unexpected love—and putting Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin, on the map for romance…

Cautious to a fault, Lily Eicher strives to live up to her dat’s high standards. She’s certainly not the kind of proper Amish girl who would make time for someone as impetuous as the Helmuths’ grandson, Aden—even if his lively spirit and caring ways are showing her just how wonderful following her heart can be…

Recklessly doing the right thing got Aden into big trouble. A fresh start at his grandparents’ is just what he needs. And shy, pretty Lily is turning his world upside down and making him want to prove he can do good within the rules. But now both must find enough faith and understanding to risk pursuing their dreams—together…

Lily wished for a cell phone, longed for a cell phone, would have done just about anything for a cell phone at that moment. She didn’t care if it was against the Ordnung. This raging anxiety would send her over the edge. Of course, even if she had a cell phone, it wouldn’t do her any good unless Aden had a cell phone and they got coverage on Huckleberry Hill, which was a pretty good chance they didn’t.

She’d abandoned the house over an hour ago and stood on the porch looking out into the woods in the fading light of dusk. This felt like when Aden went underwater, only a hundred times worse. At least underwater, she knew precisely where he was, and her terror had lasted mere minutes. But now, two hours after Aden had taken to the woods with a set of frying pans, she knew less than nothing. There was no rustle from the leaves, no distant barking, not even the sound of faraway pans being smacked together to give her hope. Had he no consideration for her feelings?
