Rachel, youngest child of Mennonite missionaries Rebecca and James Miller, at seven years of age meets her Amish grandparents, Ellie and David Eash, for the first time. A close bond forms between Rachel and Grandma Ellie. Share Rachel's exciting experiences with her Amish cousins and relatives. See how Ellie and David gently lead Rachel toward maturity, through sharing stories and their love for Scripture. Rachel goes along to Amish church meetings, takes part in youth singings, and is courted by Amish boyfriend Norman. Eventually Rachel is faced with choosing between her Mennonite upbringing and the Amish lifestyle and faith. Will she be able to accept Amish instruction, baptism, and membership? Would being "sure-enough Amish" give her a sense of peace?
