Rebecca Kauffman’s tranquil Old Order Amish life is transformed when she
suddenly has custody of her two teenage nieces after her ‘English’
sister and brother-in-law are killed in an automobile accident.
motherhood — after years of unsuccessful attempts to conceive a child of
her own — is both a joy and a heartache. Rebecca struggles to give the
teenage girls the guidance they need as well as fulfill her duties to
Daniel as an Amish wife. Rebellious Jessica is resistant to Amish ways
and constantly in trouble with the community. Younger sister Lindsay is
caught in the middle, and the strain between Rebecca and Daniel mounts
as Jessica’s rebellion escalates. Instead of the beautiful family life
she dreamed of creating for her nieces, Rebecca feels as if her world is
being torn apart by two different cultures, leaving her to question her
place in the Amish community, her marriage, and her faith in God.
