After tragedy strikes the family of young Naomi Bachman, her sister-in-law Rebecca Bachman does all she can to help. But things get complicated when Micah--Rebecca's brother and Naomi's husband--returns from a combat tour in Afghanistan. He is under the Meidung--the shunning--because of his enlistment, and none of the Amish are permitted to speak to him or eat with him, even his wife Naomi. How then can this young couple, still in love, ever find happiness? How can the healing process even begin when Micah refuses to repent of what he has done? Still, God has a way of working on the hearts of His people--especially at Christmastime. At just the right time, events conspire to birth a miracle that may set things right for Naomi and Micah--and for the Amish community itself.
Here is warm and tender story of faithfulness, love, and reconciliation at the most wonderful time of the year.
