From the Inside Flap
"Tonight we'll have some answers," Frona informed me this mid-May morning. "I just hope we like what we hear."
"Well, I guess we'll know soon enough." I've learned in my twenty years that a person really has no idea how life's going to play out. Things often start out fine and then take a hard turn. Dat and Mamma, healthy as they seemed, left us in their prime. Jah, I knew firsthand that when hard times came, you needed something to cling to. Unfortunately for pretty Lily, Mamma had always been her rock during such times, and without her around, Lily seemed lost. We all were, in our own way, just not nearly as openly, nor as desperately.
From the Back Cover
Why would a devout girl have her picture taken?
When her sister Lily disappears only months after their widowed mother's passing, Eva Esch fears she has been wooed away from the People. Yet Lily's disappearance isn't Eva's only concern: She and her sisters must relocate once their older brother takes over the family farmhouse. Then Jed Stutzman, an Amish buggy maker from Ohio, shows up in Eden Valley with a photo of a Plain young woman. Eva feels powerfully drawn to the charming stranger--but the woman in the forbidden photograph is no stranger at all. . . .
