Nineteen-year-old Rebecca Baard has experienced more than her share of sorrow, and now she is afraid to open her heart to love. Besides, no man has ever shown enough interest in her to come courting. So Rebecca's friends set out to remedy the situation, concocting social events to attract all the eligible bachelors in Blessing and advising her in the use of feminine wiles. When none of these efforts seem to work, Rebecca tries yet another tack, only to discover that even the best of intentions can't keep events from taking a surprising turn.
Will Rebecca overcome her fears, or will she settle for something less than love?

Renee Ertl captures Rebecca Board's youthful dream of starting an ice cream parlor in her hometown of Blessing. With subtle emotional nuances she depicts Rebecca's brother's initial humor--he's certain she's too young--which soon turns to concern when he sees she's serious. Ertl's portrayal of Rebecca's frustration with her family's lack of belief in her is especially believable. When Rebecca visits her cousin Penny in Bismarck, she visits a soda shop to gain business advice. Ertl perfectly renders Rebecca's new sense of direction and determination to succeed when she returns home. In addition, Ertl's depiction of business owner Mr. Jeffers, as well as town gossip Mrs. Valders and her shy adopted son, brings laughter and tears. This is too good to miss.
