Summary
In the Amish home of Grace Byler, secrets abound. Then, in one startling moment, everything Grace assumed she knew is shattered. Her mother's disappearance leaves her reeling and left to pick up the pieces of her life as she questions all she has been taught about love, family and commitment. Heather Nelson is an English grad student stunned by a doctor's diagnosis. In denial and telling no one she is terminally ill, Heather travels to Lancaster--the last place she and her mother had visited together. As the lives of four wounded souls begin to weave together like an Amish patchwork quilt, they discover missing pieces of their life puzzles
