After a fiance deserts her, Becca Yost leaves her Amish community to stay with her sister Ruth who lives in Masillon, Ohio and has left the Amish faith.
Having been a midwife, she finds a job in the office of a young doctor, Matt Carrington, an Englischer who immediately takes an interest in Becca. Although she still dresses Amish, this doesn't bother him but seems to be a big stepping stone for his mother.
Mrs. Carrington feels strongly that Becca is an obstacle in Matt's Career and social status. She finds some interesting ways and means to deter her son in an attempt to have him find interests elsewhere.
Becca and Matt work well together but eventually the efforts of Mrs. Carrington start to cause serious problems for Becca, causing her to leave Matt and her job in his office.
She is convinced their relationship won't work and returns to visit her community. Will she return or will she remain with her Amish family, friends and religion?
This was a very good book. I had a hard time putting it down. I hope this author will write lots more Amish books, because I will be reading them! If you like historical time periods, and I do, this will be an enjoyable read, which includes some "wild west" scenes that are sure to draw you right in!
