"Leona Speicher got the 'sister' she always dreamed of the day Gloria Gingerich and her family moved to Lancaster County. The Arkansas newcomers seem to be the answer to Leona's prayers--until Gloria's father is expelled from their Old Order Amish church for reasons no one will discuss. Much to Leona's dismay, the Gingeriches suddenly pack up and disappear. Then, after a silence of several years, Gloria unexpectedly contacts Leona, who makes up her mind to go after her friend. Yet Leona's fiancé--the deacon's son--is alarmed. Will Leona's dearest wish lead to her own undoing?"--Back cover.

Another Lewis novel that will delight the reader of Amish fiction. The focus here is lovely - two women parted by circumstances beyond their control. The coming of age plot is well thought out and the details, particularly of the physical surroundings, add a charm and authenticity. I have to say, it's refreshing to read some Amish fiction that does not rely heavily on the romance plot for its substance. You will truly come to care for the two girls and their inner struggles.
