Sarah Cain is a strictly modern woman living in Oregon and developing a burgeoning career in real estate. Her sister, Ivy, left to pursue a "Plain" life in Amish country 12 years ago. But when Ivy dies, Sarah is shocked to learn that she has been appointed guardian of her sister's five children. Lydia, the eldest, senses major difficulties for the new family. Neither she nor Sarah are truly prepared for the drastic changes they will have to make in order to honor Ivy's last wish.
With hope and tenderness, Lewis guides Sarah and the children on their journey of religious fulfillment. Barbara Caruso's tender narration lends a sensitive charm to each of the characters.

Although rather predictable, this is a heart-warming story - showing how children can often teach valuable lessons to the adults while maintaining respect to their elders. Another lovely story by Beverly Lewis and brought to life by the narration of Barbara Carouso - I love to listen to her!
the movie was good but the book though simular is quite different and i liked it better
