Summary
"A deathbed confession, a dusty carved box containing two locks of hair and a century-old letter regarding property in Switzerland, and a burning desire to learn about her biological family lead nurse-midwife Lexie Jaeger from her home in Oregon to the heart of Pennsylvania Amish country. There she meets Marta Bayer, a mysterious lay-midwife who made hold the key to Lexie's past, but she's not talking - especially following the death of an Amish client during childbirth. Lexie steps in to assume Marta's patient load and continues the search for her birth family. And from her patients and others she meets in this strange new world, Lexie learns the true meaning of the Pennsylvania Dutch word demut, which is 'to let be'. Will this woman who wants to control everything ever learn to depend totally on God? Or will her stubborn determination to unearth the secrets of the past tear her newfound family apart?" -- Cover verso
