Miriam Raber is awaiting a proposal from Saul Fisher, amid rumors that he will be leaving their Old Order community. Miriam believes that she would follow Saul anywhere — even to pursue his career in the Englisch world.
Shelby, Miriam’s worldly cousin, is sent to stay with Miriam’s family while her parents are going through a divorce. As a result, Shelby feels like she does not belong, has no purpose and that God has given up on her. Shelby begins to evaluate her life in a different light after experiencing the fellowship and closeness within the community. (THOMAS NELSON, Apr., 320 pp., $14.99)
