Lydia Bontrager’s youngest sister is
frighteningly ill, and as a good Amish daughter, it falls to Lydia to
care for her siblings and keep the household running, in addition to
working as a teacher’s assistant and helping part time at her
grandmother’s bakery. Succumbing to stress, Lydia gives in to one wild
night and returns home drunk. The secret of that mistake leaves Lydia
feeling even more restless and confused, especially when Joshua, the
only boy she’s ever loved, becomes increasingly distant. When a
non-Amish boy moves in nearby, Lydia finds someone who understands her,
but the community is convinced Lydia is becoming too reckless. With the
pressures at home and her sister’s worsening condition, a splintering
relationship with Joshua, and her own growing questions over what is
right, Lydia could lose everything that she’s ever held close.
