The Amish of Wells Landing, Oklahoma, treaurse their close-knit community. Everyone has long expected Sadie Kauffman and Chris Flaud to marry, despite Sadie's telling them differently. She loves Chris more as a friend than a husband. Yet at twenty-two, Sadie is the only one in her group still single. Then she meets a kind, handsome Mennonite, and it seems her prayers have been answered. With Ezra Hein, Sadie at last feels the joy she nearly gave up on. Unfortunately, others feel shock that she would consider marrying an outsider.
