  • When her father can no longer provide for his large family, Fanny Price is sent away from her small Amish community in Colorado to live with her aunt’s family in Mount Hope, Ohio. Fanny immediately feels out of place at the Bontrager farm but finds a friend in her aunt’s stepson, Elijah Bontrager.

     
    As time passes, Fanny begins to long for their friendship to blossom into something more, but her hopes are dashed when Elijah starts to court someone else. With her uncle pressuring her to marry a man who can take her off his hands, Fanny must learn to rely on God for her future.
  • Sarah Price’s family emigrated from Europe in 1705, settling in Pennsylvania as the area's first wave of Mennonite families. At nineteen, she befriended an Amish family and lived on their farm. Twenty-five years later she splits her time between her family in the New York City metro area and a home that she shares with an Amish woman in  Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where she retreats to reflect and write. As a masterful storyteller, Sarah Price prides herself on presenting an authentic Amish experience for her readers.
