(From the publisher):
Growing up Plain, Rachel Yoder dreamed of being a woman of confidence, like the hearty women and men of her ancestry. But unlike Gabriel Esh, her fiery great-uncle who preached out against age-old practices in the community and endured the shunning for his beliefs, Rachel was said to be "born shy." After suffering the tragedy of early widowhood, she is so shadowed by grief that even her young daughter has trouble coaxing Rachel out of her shell.
Philip Bradley's arrival at the Orchard Guest House B&B would be called providential by certain folk in the Lancaster Amish community, for it is Philip who stumbles across a forsaken postcard in the crevice of an antique desk. A world-weary journalist, Philip finds his enthusiasm renewed at the challenge the postcard presents. Written in Pennsylvania Dutch and signed by an infamous Plain relative, the faded message leads Philip to the bedside of a woman with a tale of dark secrets and lost love.
Drawn to the ancient story, Philip and Rachel find their own lives inexorably intertwined. Will their discoveries give Rachel the courage to embrace the promise of healing and the hope of new love?
