Lydia was a girl who grew up Amish, but she knew she was adopted as well. When she got older, she left the Amish community but she never lost her faith. The story revolves around her as she heads back into town after her mother's death. Within a very short time she realizes how much she has missed the community and faith of the Amish and she becomes a baptized member of the local church. The story focuses a lot on her path back to that part of her life, but also on her relationship with another Amish man named Gideon.
The book is a good read. It's easy to read, it has some romance, some suspense, and some humor, so it's something for everyone. Apparently it is part of a series, and if I am correct it's the second one. You will never know, so don't let that stop you from jumping right into it, but I'd be very interested to read the other books in the series. I'm sure they're just as good as this one.
