A thoroughly modern woman, Sarah Cain had ridiculed her sister's choice of a Plain life-style, which served only to intensify the lifelong rift between them. Now, 12 years later, Sarah is stunned by news of her sister's death and baffled by Ivy's choice of a guardian. How can Sarah sacrifice her successful career and her life in Portland to raise five Amish orphans? And what of Bryan Ford, the man who loves her?
Upon her arrival in Lancaster County, Sarah holds a grief all her own - one very different from the suffering of her nieces and nephews. Can the sorrow that divides them ultimately unite them as a family? Will Sarah discover that Lancaster County's Amish community is not only a simpler place, but also a healing place?
