Summary
In a struggling Amish settlement on the harsh Colorado plain in 1914, Abbie Weaver fights for the life of the church she cherishes. But the loss the community feels most deeply is the lack of a minister. Visiting bishops have stopped coming--a mystery that demands explanation.

When Abbie discovers the root of the unspoken spiritual divide that runs through the settlement, she finds herselfquestioning her own father's faith. Will a collision of loves and values cost her Willem forever?
