"Amy King--young, engaged, and Amish--faces difficult challenges in her life when she suddenly loses both of her parents in unexpected tragedy. Amy's fiance, John Detweiler, persuades her and her sister Nora to leave Lancaster County and make a new beginning with him in Harmony, Maine, where he has relatives who will help them. John's brother Thomas and sister-in-law Sally readily open their home to the newcomers. Wise beyond his years, Thomas, a minister in the district, refuses to marry Amy and John upon their arrival, suggesting instead a period of adjustment. While trying to assimilate into the ultraconservative district, Amy discovers an aunt who was shunned. Amy wants to reconnect with her, but John worries that the woman's tarnished reputation will refelct badly on his beloved bride-to-be. Can John and Amy find a way to overcome problems in their relationship and live in happily in Harmony before making a lifetime commitment to eachother?"-- Cover verso.

Really enjoyed this book. The characters deal with building a new life in a new place after loss. They deal with tensions of their new community having more conservative ways. Not everyone finds this easy, which leads to another book, that I look forward to reading. I enjoyed hearing about how life could be more sustainable by living simply and getting back to the land.
