Set in 1967 Pennsylvania, this sequel to Lewis’ New York Times bestselling novel The Parting tells the tale of Amish sweethearts struggling to overcome the schism that divides their families and threatens their future.

The church split has not extinguished their love, but the demands of one man still stand in their way.

Caleb Yoder’s father has forbidden him to court Nellie Mae Fisher, but words alone cannot stop Caleb’s devotion. Yet if he continues to pursue Nellie, he risks losing everything.

Nellie, too, is torn. She longs to marry her Old Order beau but cannot ignore the gentle pull she feels toward the faith of her New Order family. Can she and her beloved satisfy the expectations of the people while remaining true to their hearts?

    " I loved how many of the Amish people were drawn to leave their ways by the Spirit and eventually left their church so that they could read the scriptures and feel the Spirit on their own. "

    " This one was a little less sad and pathetic than the first in the series. I did enjoy the part of it of Nellie finding herself a little more, and getting to see more about the world from the Amish perspective, but it was still not the best book ever, cute but completely for young girls. "
