Miriam Lapp must return to the Amish community of her youth to say goodbye. But goodbye is sometimes easier said than done.

When Miriam Lapp left the Amish community of Bird-in-Hand three years ago, she put the past behind her. But when her sister calls with news that their mother has died suddenly, Miriam swallows her pride one last time and travels back to Pennsylvania.

Miriam’s resolve to stay aloof from the Amish community falters when she learns that the rumors that broke up her engagement with Timothy Kauffman years ago were lies. Could it be that she threw away a chance at life and love, all for nothing? If Timothy weren’t already engaged to marry another woman, maybe they could rekindle their love, but Miriam realizes the past is past. She would never do to Timothy’s fiancée what was done to her. She returns to Indiana hurting, but knowing she did the right thing.

When Miriam’s family calls on her for help, she once again steps up to the task, knowing her sacrifice will yield her no personal gain. But it turns out that peace often surpasses our understanding, and love finds us in the most unlikely of circumstances.

Take a trip to Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, where you’ll meet the women of the Kauffman Amish Bakery in Lancaster County. As each woman’s story unfolds, you will share in her heartaches, trials, joys, dreams...and secrets. You’ll discover how the simplicity of the Amish lifestyle can clash with the “English” way of life—and the decisions and consequences that follow. Most importantly, you will be encouraged by the hope and faith of these women, and the importance they place on their families.

From the Back Cover:

Miriam Lapp, who left the Amish community in Pennsylvania three years ago, is heartbroken when her sister calls to reveal that her mother has died suddenly.

Her past emotional wounds are reopened when her family rejects her and she finds that Timothy is in a relationship with another woman. Miriam finds out that the rumors that broke them up three years ago were all lies. However, when Timothy proposes to his girlfriend and Miriam's father disowns her, Miriam returns to Indiana with her heart in shambles. When Miriam's father has a stroke and Miriam returns to Pennsylvania, her world begins to fall apart, leaving her to question her place in the Amish community and her faith in God.
