As Mary Classen Baxter shops for the last of her spring plants at Franz Farms, she gets to know the Mennonite owner, widower Gabriel Franz, quite well.

When Gabriel’s nursery and fields are vandalized and items start to go missing, Mary is determined to help her new friend and solve the crimes.
When Elizabeth stumbles across a Bible with the name Franz written in the front of it at a moving sale, she recognizes the Bible as a family heirloom.

The Classen sisters soon find themselves embroiled in yet another mystery, one that will lead them to unexpected discoveries.
