Charlotte Miller has been boarded up in her house for sixteen years because of a mysterious illness, and when she is finally healed, her mother and sister are killed.
Fearing that she can't make it on her own, she tosses the one thing that can stop the disease from relapsing: her umbrella. As she travels in hope that the sun will kill her, she crosses paths with an Amish candy man who somehow intrigues her with his blunt businesslike manner.
Her uncle has a book of rules for courting; can she reel this traveling candy man in? Would it be worth it to live if he'd fall in love with her, or should she wait for the sun to take her?
God had sent a Son many years ago, One that died on Calvary, and despite tragedy, persecution, and the struggle to forgive, this Son may be the answer, and He just pulled into rural Indiana.
