Jorie King is waiting. Waiting for Ben Zook to return to Lancaster County. Waiting for Ben to join the church and to settle down. Waiting for Ben to marry her.
News arrives that Ben has been killed and Ben's brother Caleb becomes a source of comfort for Jorie. Their friendship developes into more and they talk of a future together. Suddenly both of their worlds are turned upside down. How will they cope with all the changes in their lives and also with gossip and the insensitive, ignorant behavior of some outsiders.
There are many twists to this story that will grab you and make you not want to put this book down. You will want to know what happens because it will really tug at your heart. I really enjoyed reading this story and getting to know a little more about the lives of some of the Amish people in Pennsylvania. I'm sure that if you like to read this type of story too, you will want to get this book and read it from cover to cover.
