Overview

Fifty-five-year-old Sadie Bletchler, a widow of fifteen years, is a woman in her central Pennsylvania Mennonite community who, despite the heartache of losing her husband Roland, enjoys life to its fullest. The head of the Snyder County Quilting Bee, she is also known as a lady who “gets things done and done right” but often finds herself in humorous or embarrassing situations because of her impulsiveness.
Through a local travel agency, Sadie has planned a trip out West to see some of the natural marvels and wonders of her beautiful country. She has invited Katrina, John Friesen’s wife of seven months, to accompany her on the ten-day trip in early September. Sadie is excited about the trip for more than one reason, saying she wouldn’t mind if she’d meet a nice man looking for a widow who’s still got some kick in her
Flying into Phoenix, Arizona, Katrina and Sadie join a tour group of forty and begin their trip of a lifetime on a bus that will travel 2000 miles all the way to South Dakota. As Katrina gets to know Sadie in a much more personal way, she discovers that, as well as enjoying the splendor of God’s creativity and the ingenuity of man, she often enjoys Sadie’s antics just as much.
Sadie finds pleasure in keeping a journal of her days’ travels, buying more gifts than she can carry, and taking pictures of as many animals as she can. But her focus suddenly shifts from tourist attractions to Ken Shellhammer, a handsome middle-aged widower from Illinois, who is attracted to Sadie from the moment they meet. Sadie is also “hopelessly smitten” with Ken, and a kindred friendship begins.
Although Sadie enjoys Ken’s companionship, and they vow to keep in touch after the trip, Sadie says that their friendship will never develop into anything more because Ken is “English.” But as the trip progresses, Sadie’s feelings for Ken lead her into thoughts that she knows her Mennonite family and friends back home would not condone.
At the farewell dinner on the last evening of the trip, Ken approaches Sadie and asks her to be “more than friends.” Heart torn in two, Sadie tells Ken her deepest thoughts before they head their separate ways.
Sadie receives the surprise of her life when Ken tells her he is not English but Mennonite. When asked why he didn’t say so before, Ken replies, “You didn’t ask me.”
