Shes always dreamed of being a parent, but the clash of cultures threatens to tear her home, including her marriage, apart.Rebecca Kauffmans tranquil Old Order Amish life is transformed when she suddenly becomes guardian to f her two teenage nieces after her English sister and brother-in-law are killed in an automobile accident. Instant motherhood, after years of unsuccessful attempts to conceive a child of her own, is both a joy and a heartache.

Younger sister Lindsay is caught in the middle, and the strain between Rebecca and Daniel mounts as Jessicas rebellion escalates.
