The lives of four people converge in the wake of a horrific accident in the small Pennsylvania town of Halfway: Haley, a nursing student unsure of her future career; her coworker Dylan, the social worker who is attracted to her; Elsie, who runs her family country store but longs for modernizations that would ease her work; and Ruben Zook, a known community prankster. As the four connect, faith, hope, and love begin to bloom. However, will their fragile bonds of friendship be able to overcome self-doubt, religious obligations in the small Amish community, and secrets of the heart? In the face of tragedy, the protagonists' trust in God may be the strongest connection. VERDICT Lauer's new Amish series launch is sure to be a hit with fans of her "Seasons of Lancaster County" series (A Simple Spring; A Simple Winter; A Simple Autumn) as several of the main characters in those books reappear in the new trilogy, albeit in minor roles.
