When you're the bishop's daughter, there are certain standards that have to be met. Anna Weaver felt the weight of that burden. Believing people were always waiting for her to put a foot wrong, she retreated into her shell and had few friends. There was only one man she did not feel awkward around, and that was her close friend, Levi Glick. Even though he had been in and out of the Amish community over the past year, Anna was certain he would soon commit to the Amish faith by baptism, and she ignored the rumors about him.
When Anna's cousin visits, Anna has a chance to see her life through someone else's eyes. Anna discovers her parents hope she'll marry Stephen Baker, a friend of her brother's who was constantly at the house. Stephen and Anna disagreed about the issue of mining in the area and each were determined to make the other see sense. Feeling Stephen is too old and not as much fun as Levi, Anna avoids him as she has always done, until her cousin intervenes. Gradually, as she spends more time with the two men, Anna learns what's important to her in a husband.
When the two men have different stories regarding a rumor, will Anna be able to figure out which one she can trust?
After one man breaks her heart, will she find love with the other, or has she left it too late?
