With autumn in full brilliant color, the Amish of Promise Lodge celebrate a successful harvest—and a
community rooted in deep friendship. But as cold winds of judgment cast doubt and fear, residents will need each other more than ever to weather the storm . . .
For abandoned wife Annabelle Beachey, Promise Lodge is a refuge where she's gained confidence and
self-sufficiency. But she and others are dismayed when newly arrived Bishop Clayton King claims the
community is too progressive and sets out to change its ways. Worse, her husband, Phineas, returns,
expecting her to give up her faith as he has. And he won't leave Promise Lodge without her . . .
But little by little, Annabelle's determination and new forthrightness make Phineas realize his
mistakes—and truly hear his wife for the first time. Meanwhile, Annabelle finds herself feeling
compassion—and even renewed love—for her newly humble, more caring husband. And as Bishop
Clayton’s attempt to control Promise Lodge threatens everything its residents have built, Phineas and Annabelle must work together with unshakeable courage to save their new home—and their opportunity for forever happiness.
