Army widow Hannah Conroy returns to Pleasant Valley, the Plain community she left as a child, to take refuge with her Old Order Mennonite aunt after her husband’s death. With a young son to support, Hannah intends to stay only until she’s on her feet again. But as she’s drawn into the life of the community and begins tutoring an Amish man, William Brand, to control his stuttering, she begins envisioning a life there. Her dreams are challenged by her late husband’s father, who threatens to attempt to take her son away if she persists in bringing him up Mennonite. Hannah is forced to make a choice between the freedom of the outside world and the home she’s found in Pleasant Valley, while William must find the courage to speak for the woman he loves.
