Plain pursuit : a Daughters of the promise novel

Beth Wiseman.

Each Daughters of the Promise novel focuses on one woman's journey into an Amish Community where she discovers new meaning to the words faith, hope, and love. When Carley Marek takes a hiatus from her job, she leaves Texas and visits her friend Lillian in Amish country, Pennsylvania. Carley isn't there long when she meets Lillian's charming-but shunned-brother-in-law, Dr. Noah Stoltzfus. When Lillian's stepson is stricken with a life-threatening disease, Noah is forbidden to intervene, but he resolves to do whatever it takes to save the boy's life. Carley finds herself caught in the middle of her feelings for Noah and her loyalty to Lillian. And to further complicate matters, everyone around her is talking about God--a God she doesn't know and who appears to be punishing her for her past mistakes. When her hiatus is up, Carley must make a life-changing decision: stay and face the path that is set before her, or flee and leave the only love she's ever known.
