A Compelling Story of Friendship from the Top Author in Amish Fiction! Leona Speicher got the "sister" she'd always dreamed of the day Gloria Gingerich and her family moved to Lancaster County Amish farmland. The Arkansas newcomers seem to be everything a devout Plain family should be, and Leona can't help comparing Gloria's engaging young parents to her own. Leona's cousin shows a romantic interest in Gloria around the same time as Gloria's older brother expresses his fondness for Leona--it seems likely the two young women will marry into each other's families, remaining close friends for life. Thus, Leona is shocked when the Gingeriches suddenly pack up and disappear after being expelled from the church for reasons no one will discuss. Despite Leona's pleas, Gloria goes with them, leaving more than one broken heart behind. When Gloria unexpectedly contacts Leona after a silence of several years, Leona makes up her mind to persuade her friend to return to Lancaster County and the Amish ways. Leona's fianč, the deacon's son, is alarmed when Leona decides to go after Gloria. Will Leona's dearest wish lead to her own undoing?

Another Lewis novel that will delight the reader of Amish fiction. The focus here is lovely - two women parted by circumstances beyond their control. The coming of age plot is well thought out and the details, particularly of the physical surroundings, add a charm and authenticity. I have to say, it's refreshing to read some Amish fiction that does not rely heavily on the romance plot for its substance. You will truly come to care for the two girls and their inner struggles.
