Overview

Raised among the Amish of Indiana, 18-year-old Marianna Sommer plans to get baptized into the church, marry Aaron Zook, and set up life in the only community she has ever known. But when her older brother chooses the world's path following his rumschpringe, and a younger sibling begins showing interest in Englisch ways, Marianna's parents move the family into a Montana Amish town.
Although she is also in her rumschpringe years and not obligated to move, Marianna makes the journey to dutifully help her mother who is expecting another child. Surprisingly, from strangers on the cross-country train ride to the less rigid stance of the new Montana community, many Englisch influences awaken within Marianna-and even her father-the desire to pursue a deeper kind of joy and love for God.
After an accident, Marianna tells her friend Ben a defining story about the Sommer family, and his response further illumines the active relationship God seeks with His followers.
In due time, she learns the move from Indiana was not about losing anything, but finding out who the Christian God really is. Despite all the shake-ups, Marianna feels a sweet peace, like still waters, in her soul.
This stunning Amish Christian Fiction novel showcases the impact of God's love, grace and desire to deepen his relationship with us. As a part of the Big Sky Novel series, these tales of love among small Amish communities will entice you to rejoice in the wholesome romances of the characters.
