In the seemingly ordinary Amish home of Grace Byler, secrets abound. Why does her mother weep in the night? Why does her father refuse to admit something is dreadfully wrong? Then, in one startling moment, everything Grace assumed she knew is shattered. Her mother’s disappearance leaves Grace reeling and unable to keep her betrothal promise to her long-time beau. Left to pick up the pieces of her life, Grace questions all she has been taught about love, family, and commitment.

Heather Nelson is an English grad student, stunned by a doctor’s diagnosis. Surely fate would not allow her father to lose his only daughter after the death of his wife a few years before. In denial and telling no one she is terminally ill, Heather travels to Lancaster County—the last place she and her mother had visited together. Will Heather find healing for body and spirit?

As the lives of four wounded souls begin to weave together like an Amish patchwork quilt, they each discover missing pieces of their life puzzles—and glimpse the merciful and loving hand of God.

    " Beverly Lewis' writing style is much better than Wanda Brunstetter's, at least for me. Nice, easy read makes for a great refreshing read. "

    " Fun read. Goes really fast. I read it in three sittings. Kind of interesting to learn about the Amish and Mennonites. When I did summer stock in Pennsylvania I remember seeing their buggies on the roads. "

    " I found this book to be only marginally interesting. Having never read Amish fiction before, I was really unsure of what to expect. While I did expect the story to be void of any adventure, per se, I didn't expect the story to be bland. [return]I could not relate to the character of Lettie, the mother, when she chose to leave her family behind to root around in her past and reveal her secret. I realize that in the Amish culture and faith, she would have suffered greatly had she revealed her secret within her community. However, I still thought leaving the children behind as she did was too harsh. I thought the father, Judah, was portrayed as unloving to Lettie as a means to make the reader stray down the wrong paths in figuring out Lettie's mystery.[return]I found the style of writing to be very easy to read. Despite the ease of reading, I didn't feel compelled to keep going back to this book. It read as very predictable to me.[return]I kept feeling that this book wouold have been better off as a TV movie. "
