A young Amish woman must choose between the home she loves and the new horizons she craves just as her grandmother did years ago. Central Pennsylvania, current day. Restless and adventurous, Amish Barbie Lapp has been stepping out among the English. Minister Benuel Kauffman doesn't approve of her choices, but he can't deny the positive influence Barbie has on his wayward teenage sister. As Barbie is drawn to the kindness beneath Benuel's gruff exterior, the mementos she finds in a dower chest given to her by her grandmother Elizabeth provide the insight she needs to decide whether to fully embrace the Amish way of life or leave it behind for forever. Lancaster County, 1960. As working farms for the Amish become more scarce, Elizabeth Lapp's husband, Reuben, tries to persuade her that they would be better off moving north. But the prospect of leaving her close-knit community of family and friends frightens Elizabeth. Can she muster enough love and faith to leap into a new life? Two women from one family, separated by decades, both find that the ultimate adventure takes place in the heart.
