In the autumn of 1966, as deep-seated differences push Honeybrook’s Old
Order Amish community to the breaking point, Nellie Mae Fisher and her
beloved Caleb Yoder find their families — and themselves — on opposite
sides of what threatens to become an impossible divide.
Passionate and stubborn Nellie Fisher knows that if her family breaks
away from their church district, she stands to lose her beloved Caleb,
staunch in his Old Order beliefs. But if she follows Caleb, she will
lose her dear family. And what of the gentle stirrings she feels when
her bishop-uncle speaks of an assurance of salvation her soul longs for?
Will their families end up on the
same side? Or will Nellie and Caleb be forced to part?
