Raised among the Amish of Indiana, 18-year-old Marianna
Sommer plans to get baptized into the church, marry Aaron
Zook, and set up life in the only community she has ever
known. But when her older brother chooses the worldâ€™s path
following his rumschpringe, and a younger sibling begins
showing interest in Englisch ways, Mariannaâ€™s parents move
the family to Montana.
Although she is also in her rumschpringe years and not
obligated to move, Marianna makes the journey to dutifully
help her mother who is expecting another child.
Surprisingly, from strangers on the cross-country train
ride to the less rigid stance of the new Montana
community, many Englisch influences awaken within Mariannaâ€”
and even her fatherâ€”the desire to pursue a deeper kind of
joy and love for God.
After an accident, Marianna tells her friend Ben a
defining story about the Sommer family, and his response
further illumines the active relationship God seeks with
His followers. In due time, she learns the move from
Indiana was not about losing anything, but finding out who
God really is. Despite all the shake-ups, Marianna feels a
sweet peace, like still waters, in her soul.
