About this item

In the third installment of Amy Clipston's Amish Homestead series, Priscilla Allgyer returns to the Amish community she'd dreamt of escaping and learns the hard lessons of love and forgiveness from a surprising source.

In order to escape an abusive boyfriend, Priscilla Allgyer returns to the community she thought she'd left behind forever - returning with her six-year-old son after being excommunicated and estranged from her family for years. Her mother welcomes them, but her father is cold, only allowing her to live with them if she dresses plainly, confesses her sins, and agrees to marry within the community. Once again, she feels suffocated and trapped.

Priscilla reluctantly completes her shunning but notices Mark Riehl, a farmer with a playboy reputation, remaining kind to her and her son. After her father and the bishop catch Mark and Priscilla in a compromising situation, the two are compelled to enter an awkward engagement that neither had planned.

As Priscilla and Mark get married and live as friends, love quietly grows between them. Together they learn not only how to love and trust, but also how to move beyond the past and build a future for their unexpected new family.
