It’s 1917, and Samantha
O’Brien, seventeen years old, runs away from Wisconsin to Minnesota to
escape a drunkard father and broken home. She is accepted with open arms
into the Klaassen family, German Mennonites who show both love and
patience to this lonely and defensive girl. Samantha’s fractured
childhood and its devastating losses make it very difficult for her to
accept the Klaassen’s genuine care and concern, because she’s sure
nobody can love the likes of her. But with prayer, time and love, the
family — including the young and handsome Adam Klaassen — begins to break
through Samantha’s walls.
