Sylvia Miller's Old Order family is upended with the arrival of Adeline Pelham. It isn't that Adeline means to be a threat, but her very existence is a reminder of a painful secret. As Sylvia and her mother struggle to come to terms with the news, it is a challenging time to welcome an Englisher-- especially this Englisher-- into their midst. And Sylvia is grappling with issues of her own: trying to rebuild her trust in her father, uncertain what to make of her once-promising engagement to Titus Kauffman. Can God make something good come out of the mistakes of the past? Or does Adeline's arrival mark one too many surprises for the Millers and their Amish community?--Adapted from back cover.
