Bairn Bauer had been snatched as a boy, beaten and sold off in a gambling game. His parents were informed he was dead. He ends up in the hands of Captain John Stedman who teaches him the ways of a seaman. Years later, Bairn finds his parents and suggests the church and community his father has built, relocate to a safer area. His father will have no part of it. Anna Konig is in love with Bairn. His reluctance to settle down causes her not to feel safety and security with him. More years pass and Bairn again returns from the sea, now ready to settle down. If Anna could only let down the wall she has built up.

Series: Amish Beginnings
But this perfect moment cannot last. As Bairn grasps the reality of what it means to be Amish in the New World--isolated, rigid with expectations, under the thumb of his domineering father--his enthusiasm evaporates. When a sea captain offers the chance to cross the ocean one more time, Bairn grabs it. Just one more crossing, he promises Anna. But will she wait for him?
When Henrik Newman joins the church just as it makes its way to the frontier, Anna is torn. He seems to be everything Bairn is not--bold, devoted, and delighted to vie for her heart. And the most dramatic difference? He is here; Bairn is not.
Far from the frontier, an unexpected turn of events weaves together the lives of Bairn, Anna, and Henrik. When a secret is revealed, which true love will emerge?
