What really makes a family?
On the eve of her wedding to a handsome Amish widower, Katie Lapp makes a discovery that throws her life into confusion. Why would Katie's mother, a simple Amishwoman who embraces the Old Ways, keep a beautiful satin baby dress in a world of woolen cape dresses? And why is an "Englisher" woman searching for Katie?
The answer sends Katie on a painful quest to uncover a secret past that alienates her from her community before she can find healing.
