If spring is a season of rebirth and love, Hallie Lapp's farm, at first glance, seems to be the place to be. What she didn't see coming after the birth of her daughter, Redbird, was an abandoned baby dropped off in her buggy as part of the Safe Haven law. She couldn't imagine a runaway girl, Annie Hosteller, showing up on her doorstep, either. Once Nurse Hal is forced to meet the scary men from the Hosteller compound life isn't the same for the Amish community for months to come. In the middle of the night, Joseph Hosteller sends his sons to search for his daughter and her newborn infant. They beat up Amish farmers, cut off their beard and their wives hair. More violence is threatened if Joseph Hosteller's daughter and baby aren't returned to him. Bishop Bontrager warns everyone to stay home and protect themselves from home invasions in the middle of the night. Nurse Hal fears what will happen when the Hostellers find Joseph's daughter, Annie, and her baby are at the Lapp farm. What harm will come to Nurse Hal and her family when the Hostellers invade their home?
