When three women, all cousins, are given the task of sorting
through the treasures of several generations of their Amish
family, they each discover a story from the past that
provides insights and inspiration for their own lives.
Central Pennsylvania, current day. Rebecca Fisher gladly
accepted her husband Paulâ€™s dreams as her own, but now that
he has passed away, sheâ€™s struggling to raise two children
and keep her home. Renting her stable to carpenter Matthew
Byler offers a partial solutionâ€”even though Matthew has a
troubled history, having sometimes failed to embrace Amish
beliefs. As Matthew seeks to prove himself, Rebecca realizes
how dependent she has become on others. Where can she find
the courage to grow and change?
Lancaster County, 1941. As war threatens, Anna Esch pours
her experiences into her diary. Her world seems to crumble
as neighbors turn against the Amish and her love, Jacob, is
sent to a camp far away for refusing to fight. She canâ€™t
know, as she grows from a girl into a woman during a time of
trouble and grief, that one day another Amish woman will
gain strength from the words she writes and will learn that
she, too, can become a keeper of the promise.
