Product Description

Rose Kauffman, a spirited young woman, has a close friendship with the bishop's foster son. Nick dresses Plain and works hard but stirs up plenty of trouble too. Rose's sister cautions her against becoming too involved, but Rose is being courted by a good, Amish fellow, so dismisses the warnings. Meanwhile, Rose keeps house for an English widower but is startled when he forbids her to ever go upstairs. What is the man hiding?

Rose's older sister, Hen, knows more than she should about falling for the wrong man. Unable to abandon her Amish ways, Hen is soon separated from her very modern husband. Mattie, their young daughter, must visit her father regularly, but Hen demands she wear Amish attire--and speak Pennsylvania Dutch, despite her husband's wishes. Will Hen be able to reestablish her place among the People she abandoned? And will she be able to convince Rose to steer clear of rogue neighbor Nick?

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I was born in Lancaster County, PA, and lived there for the first fifteen years of my life. My maternal grandmother was of the strictest Old Order Mennonite (horse-and-buggy Mennonites), and she was shunned when she began seeing the ministerial student who was to become my grandfather. Much of my inspiration for stories comes from the many personal accounts of Grandmother Ada (Ranck) Buchwalter's experiences growing up in a Plain community, not far from my own place of birth. I'm forever grateful to my grandmother for her courage and great faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  This story has gripped my heart like no other I've ever written. The main character, Rose Kauffman, is a glowing example of mercy and love--of extending oneself to an outcast considered to be unlovely. Rose's married sister, Hannah (called Hen) is attempting to right the wrongs of her youthful past, yearning to return to the Old Ways and her Christian Amish upbringing, with her little girl in tow. The overall spiritual theme of this book points to how the Amish people embrace the sovereignty of God's will, despite life's distressing circumstances and loss.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  My heart is full when I consider my devoted reader-friends. They are a constant source of encouragement and love, as I write each day. I'm so thankful for such loyal readers, who are my brothers and sisters in the family of God!
