They were strangers when they
married, but they both long for love.
Christian and Susanna had never met when they
were chosen by lot to marry in a Moravian
community in Germany. But in 1755, they traveled
with a dozen other newly married couples to
Nazareth, Pennsylvania, to help establish a
Moravian borough and share their faith with the
surrounding Indian nations.
Susanna’s heart warms toward her new husband
even after she learns that he had wished to marry
another woman in Germany. As war rages between
the British and French Indians and their young
marriage faces hardship, Susanna wonders if
Christian will ever return her love.
