Emma Stolzfus has never been courted or kissed, and now that she’s 30,
it has become her place as the unmarried daughter to look after her
elderly mother. But in the dark hours when her mother is asleep, Emma
writes letters and essays to Amish periodicals, short stories, and even a
novel she’s been working on for the last five years.
When a New
York literary agent, Tyler West, takes an interest in her work, Emma
secretly goes to meet him. When she returns, something about her is
different — and the men of her Amish community take notice. But how can
she settle for second best when her heart made its choice years ago — to a
man she can never have? Only her friends, Amelia and Carrie, know the
truth in her heart as they work together on their quilt … and only
they understand when an old tragedy comes to light that will either hurt
or heal … and reveal Emma’s hidden life.
