Summary
Rachel Beiler loves her job as the teacher in her Amish community. She's obedient, humble, and compliant and tries to keep the ordnung to the best of her ability. But Rachel has a secret-something that could get her shunned if she's found out. She loves knowledge and yearns for a college education. After serving a dozen years in the Army, Rob Lanier has returned from Afghanistan. But now that he's home again, he's constantly reminded of his family's fall from grace. His father-once a highly respected and wealthy community leader, has disgraced the family, and Rob can't find it in his heart to forgive him
Summary
Widow Rachel Beiler struggles to reconcile her Amish faith, which forbids higher education, with the love of learning that leads her to secretly enroll in college, especially after she meets English veteran Rob Lanier at college
