From the Inside Flap
I breathed a grateful prayer, thinking how far my young ones had come since their father's farming accident three years ago. "Children are ever so resilient, Maryanna," Great-Aunt Heddy had whispered today as we stood watching Sarah and her sister and brothers mingle happily with all the other Plain youngsters present.

From the Back Cover
When Jodi Winfield comes to Lancaster to house-sit, the last thing she expects to find is a disheveled little girl alone on the side of the road. The young teacher is mystified when she learns there have been no reports of a missing child, and the girl herself is no help, since she can't speak English. It's as if the child appeared out of nowhere.
Then Jodi turns her attention to Hickory Hollow--and the cloistered world of the Old Order Amish--in search of answers.
