After being shuffled from home to home, May finds a kindred spirit in Clara, a middle-aged Amish woman who welcomes her. Clara is single, having long since sworn off romantic relationships. She doesn’t trust men, and it doesn’t take her long to realize May had her own painful past, though she doesn’t know the full extent of what May suffered. Clara helps May to reintegrate into the Amish community, but May sinks deeper and deeper into depression as she tries to keep her dark past concealed.
What will it take for May to finally face her past and begin to heal? Will she and her brother Oba ever see each other again? And could May ever open her heart to another man? In the midst of great darkness, May discovers a beacon of light.
This unique Amish romance tackles heavy issues of abuse, racism, and the damage done when a community puts reputation over faith, but ultimately there is also hope, love, and the unflinching faithfulness of a good God.
