The people themselves dare to challenge the old ways of their heritage … and each patriarch must choose a side.

Nearly one hundred days have passed since the untimely death of Nellie Mae Fisher’s beloved younger sister, Suzy, and Nellie dares again to dream of a future with handsome Caleb Yoder. But with rumors about Suzy still flying among the people, there are those who would keep the young courting couple apart … including Caleb’s own father. Meanwhile, a growing number of Honeybrook’s Amish farmers are demanding tractors and other forbidden modern conveniences. When a revival adds to the tensions, passions flare.

With the Old Order community pushed to the breaking point, Nellie and Caleb find their families—and themselves—in the midst of what threatens to become an impossible divide.

    " This is the first book I have read by Beverly Lewis. I will definitely be checking out the rest of this series as well as the rest of her books. The main character of this story is Nellie Fisher, a young Amish woman who has just lost her sister in a tragic drowning. Her parents are understandably heartbroken and also distraught at the idea that their child has possibly died without hope of salvation. At first I was slightly confused by the plot until I realized that not only is this book Amish fiction, it is also historical. Amish and Mennonite fiction outlines the conflicts of faith in regards to keeping the 'Old Ways' and embracing all that the Holy Bible teaches - a powerful message of forgiveness, healing and salvation. I look forward to reading the rest of the series. "

    " I really enjoyed reading about the Amish. I have always been interested in that community and it was so fun being emersed in their world for a while. I always read the reviews that other people have given books usually after I have already started reading. I only read one bad review, where she said she thought Nellie and Caleb were both so very selfish. But I found it to be opposite. They fell in love with each other, and still tried to be mindful of his parents wishes, which I thought to be commendable. Not like most teenagers, with their hormones raging. "
