Annie wasn't raised Amish, but when her mother doesn't return from a trip, a short stay with her Amish neighbors turns into a new life. Annie finds love and security with her new Amish family, although troubles are on their way. Her new sister Lucy is jealous of the attention Annie receives, and Annie has a hard time adjusting to Amish customs. Will she always feel like an outsider, or will she finally discover her true home?
