Moriah Byler has a humble gentle spirit, is generous and always thinking of others, goes out of her way to help others. After being married for just a few months, she finds herself expecting and her husband, Levi, has decided to leave her and the Amish community for the English world. Will she be able to find her way amongst the people still? What effect will this have on her and the future of her child? Moriah must learn to put away bitterness and forgive no matter what. There is no place for hatred and bitterness. She must be strong for the baby. She must let God heal her broken heart and bind her wounds. She must quit running from her fear. She must learn to trust and put past mistakes behind her; everything can't be her fault. Mourning can only be for a season.
"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become." -C.S. Lewis
