Carley Marek experiences culture shock when she visits her friend
Lillian’s family on their farm, deep in Amish country. She’ll get an
article out of the visit — and maybe some of Lillian’s newfound peace
will somehow rub off on her.
Just when Carley is getting used to
the quiet nature of the Plain community, Lillian and Samuel’s son falls
ill. But the local doctor who can offer the most help has been shunned
by the community and is forbidden to intervene.As David’s
condition deteriorates, Dr. Noah determines to do whatever it takes to
save the boy’s life.
Carley is caught in the middle — drawn to Noah,
wanting to be helpful in the crisis — and confused by all their talk
about a God she neither knows nor trusts. She must decide what in life is worth pursuing . . . and what to do when she’s pursued by a love she never expected.
