Katie Fisher is Amish. For eighteen years, she has grown up in a community set apart from the modern world by lifestyle and belief. It is a community fiercely protective of its way of life. To turn your back on it is to lose everything - your church, your home, and your family. So in the middle of the night when the baby comes, Katie does the only thing she knows how to do in times of stress: she prays. Exhausted, she falls asleep. When she wakes, the child is gone. Her prayer has been answered. But faith alone cannot help when the baby's body is found.

Utdrag ur boken:

It was with great interest that I read about the Amish people and how their society worked. Although the foundation for the events in the novel was a dead premature baby and murder accusation, it was so much more. Cultural differences and thinking was completely different to Englicher as the Amish people called Americans. The story is very well descriptive and it was easy to see barns, fields, animals and people in front of me.
