The postcard: Rachel Yoder, a New Order Amish woman, loses her husband and son in a tragic accident and returns to her parents with her second child, Annie, in tow. Resigned to life as a widow, she helps her family run a bed-and-breakfast in a quaint Lancaster County town. Philip Bradley, a world-weary journalist from New York, is assigned to write an article on the Amish. While lodging at the Yoder's B&B, he discovers a postcard that reveals a shocking tale of a community shattered by betrayal and united in secrecy. Can Rachel heal her broken heart and survive the secret the postcard has revealed? The crossroad: Philip can't forget Rachel and little Annie after he returns to New York and decides he must know once and for all if he truly loves the soft-spoken widow. He returns to Lancaster County and immerses himself in the ways of the Plain People and, to his delight, Rachel returns his love. But Philip must make a hard decision--either join his beloved and her Anabaptist faith, or return without her to modern life.
