Well past the marrying age, Louellen had wed Amish Eli Friesen three years prior, due to pressure from her family. Eli, also in his mid-twenties and in danger of being "passed over," had married Louellen for one reason: to have sons. Louellen struggles to love a man who returns little love to her but sets out to be the best wife and mother she can be...when God blesses the marriage with kinner. However, Louellen is barren and devastated. And Eli feels trapped in a marriage that has produced no offspring even though he knows he has the medical problem. Their frustrations draw them farther apart, and their wedded life is nothing but a disappointment to both.
What should Louellen do? Turn her back on her husband, her Ordnung, and the only life she's ever known? Should she leave and marry Dr. McAndrew, a man who has promised her the moon? And will she find the truth about eternal life, which will give her the evasive peace in her heart she has longed for all her adult life?
