When Henry Edison turns up in Lancaster County to survey
farm women about their domestic contributions during the
1930s, the last thing Amish housewife Gloria Grabill has
time for is the government agent's unending questions.
Gloria's hands are already full with a farm to run alongside
her husband, a houseful of children, and an English
neighbor, Minerva Swain, who has been trying Gloria's
patience for forty years.
Gloria's oldest daughter, Polly, wants nothing more than the
traditional path of an Amish farmer's wife, but everything
she does seems to push Thomas Coblentz further away.
While the Great Depression shadows the country in gloom, can
Amish and English neighbors in Lancaster County grasp the
goodness that will sustain hope?
