Kumme to Amish country, where the simple ways of life lead to hope and healing.

During a trip to Hershey Park with friends and cousins, Katie Miller’s boyfriend Timothy is killed when their van is hit by a truck. A year later, a traumatized Katie returns to her Amish community in Indiana, struggling with depression and panic attacks.

Will she ever find the courage to face her inner demons?

Freeman Bontrager has been interested in Katie ever since they were in school. Now that Katie is home, Freeman finds excuses to spend time at the Miller house. Is there any future for him with this emotionally scarred woman, or should he turn to the fair beauty Eunice Byler?

When a mysterious package appears on Katie’s doorstep, Freeman’s loyalty is tested. But how far will he go to gain her trust. . .and her heart? What will bring this girl out of the shadows of fear, and open her heart to life—and love?
