After a devastating wildfire sweeps through her town, one young Amish woman is shown a different way to practice her faith . . . but will it cost her everything she holds dear?
Nora Beachy is caught in the middle. She's been content to live a simple life in West Kootenai, working in the community store, taking care of her family, and courting with Isaac Burke.
When wildfires threaten her home, she's forced to stay with family in Libby where the Amish community has embraced an evangelical form of worship frowned upon by her own parents and district elders in West Kootenai. She's drawn to their unfamiliar worship style, use of musical instruments, and more relaxed form of dress.
A young preacher begins to woo her spiritually, telling her she needs a personal relationship with Jesus in order to flourish as a believer. He and her cousins want her to "come alive" in her faith "for the first time." Her parents rush her back to West Kootenai as soon as they can but fear the "damage" has already been done.
Nora has to make a decision—return to her traditional Amish life or embrace this new way of worshipping and living. Will she leave behind her family and the man she loves for a different kind of faith?
