Ruthie Stoltzfus longs to leave the Amish. Newcomer Patrick Kelly longs to join them. Are they both running from the life God wants them to live? Or will they find it together?
Bright, curious, and restless, Ruthie Stoltzfus loves her family but is stuck in a sea of indecision about her future: Should she stay Amish? Or should she leave? She's done all she can to prepare to go - passed the GED, saved her money - but she can't quite set her journey into motion.
Patrick Kelly is a young man on a journey of his own. He's come to Stoney Ridge to convert to the Amish and has given himself 30 days to learn the language, drive a buggy, and adapt to "everything Plain". Time, to Patrick, is of the essence. Every moment is to be cherished, especially the hours he spends with Ruthie, his Penn Dutch tutor.
Ruthie's next-door neighbor and cunning ex-boyfriend, Luke Schrock, is drawn to trouble like a moth to a flame. Rebellious, headstrong, and defiant, Luke will do anything to win Ruthie back - anything - and Patrick Kelly is getting in his way.
Best-selling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites listeners back to Stoney Ridge for a story of dreams deferred and hopes fulfilled - complete with Fisher's signature twists that never fail to leave listeners delighted.
