Plain communities of Amish, Mennonite, and Hutterite settlements have populated the Midwestern US for hundreds of years and continue to grow today. Meet some of the people who live within these communities trying to live holy lives while in the world but not of it. Susanna and Levi are about to be married. Phoebe and Stephan are married and starting a family. Faith and Noah thought their life together would be everything they’d hoped for until tragedy hits their tranquil existence. Ben and Leah have overcome obstacles most couples will never face in their lifetime. Are their trials over? Will they ever be? Will Sarabeth overcome her struggles and ever find peace and love? Does the budding friendship between Hilda and Ivan survive the long months apart? Stories born out of the author’s own life and experience will draw you into this world.

Schwartz has expertly captured the very essence of the faith and values of the Plain churches today. She will take you into another world and shares story after story with both wisdom and tenderness.
A great author who keeps us all rivetted at the edge of our chairs while reading her words. Keep up with the plain and simple ways you portray this life so different from our own. —Mary Selinger McKibben
