Moriah's heart will only be safe with a man of his word.

In just a few short months, Moriah MillerĂs perfect life unravels. Newly wed and newly pregnant, Moriah is abandoned by her husband, Levi. HeĂs left her, his family, and their faith without a backward glance. The community, stunned, rushes to the young womanĂs aid.

But there is someone who feels more than just sympathy for Moriah. Gabriel Miller¨Levi's twin¨longs for an intimate commitment that might someday bind them to one another. Convinced of the impossibility of his dream, Gabriel settles for a mere friendship with the woman he loves.

Moriah bravely goes on with her life, adjusting to her new role in their tight-knit Amish community and preparing for the birth of her child. She is unaware that her brief marriage¨once idealized as the happiest time of her life¨may have been merely a shadow of the kind of love God has created for her. A love that can mend the soul, renew her heart, and give her a future filled with hope . . . if she'll only let it.
