Summary
Priscilla Allgyer left the community to escape the expectations of Amish life. Forced to return with her six-year-old son she is welcomed by her mother, but her father is cold and strict. He allows Priscilla to stay with them provided she dresses plainly, confesses her sins, and agrees to marry within the community. When Priscilla catches the eye of Mark Riehl, a farmer with a playboy reputation, she barely gives him the time of day. Mark, unused to being ignored by the women of Bird-in-Hand, won't give up. After Priscilla's father and the bishop catch her and Mark in a compromising situation, they both need to learn the hard lessons of love and trust. -- adapted from back cover
