The Abram's Daughters saga encompasses the lives of three generations of Ebersols, an Amish family of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Opening with The Covenant at the end of World War II and continuing into the '50s with The Betrayal, Leah and Sadie Ebersol have made very different choices with consequences that have left them many miles apart, both physically and emotionally. Having already suffered unthinkable betrayals, Leah has accepted her life as "Abram's daughter", fitting willingly and comfortably into the family and work, whether she is needed out in the barn or helping her mother, Ida, with housework and baby sister Lydiann. But an unexpected family announcement brings unimaginable joy - as well as incredible sorrow.
Leah is once again caught between the yearnings of her heart and responsibility for her family. Her younger sisters, twins Hannah and Mary Ruth, face their own difficult choices. Their paths also seem to be diverging, pushing the Ebersol family into further turmoil. Will they ever find true peace - within and without?
