Hannah was born and raised in Denmark into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (or LDS). Her upbringing was centered around God and she became very dedicated to the LDS faith feeling deeply in her soul that it was the ultimate truth.

That was until she had been married for six years.

Ed was born in the US and came from an LDS background like Hannah. Genealogy brought them together as they are ninth cousins. How exactly they met is a rather complicated story and involves an ad in the paper, letters sent across the Atlantic that were lost for six months, meetings with grandparents, pictures and letters between Ed and Hannah, and a telegram.

They first met in Missouri in the summer of 1980. Ed proposed after only six days and for some odd reason Hannah accepted. They were married five months later and Hannah moved to Missouri where Ed was living at the time on a goat farm. It was only after the wedding that Hannah found out that Ed was not as dedicated to the LDS faith as she was.

After six years they had two boys having lived all across the USA during which time their arguments had become increasingly more heated as Hannah wanted to be more LDS and Ed only wanted to be less. Finally it culminated in 1987 when he confronted her and laid all his beliefs on the table.

The book details how Hannah and Ed met across the continents and how they survived the first years of a troubled marriage as they found out how different they were relating to culture, language, and religion. The book then details Ed's confrontation when he reveals his deepest secrets that Hannah never suspected, how she had a breakdown because of the religious controversies, and finally it details her healing and how she was able to restore a faith, which was far more embracing.
