“The girl between worlds,” Ty said, taking my hand again.
From the day Angela Burkholder’s brother drowned in the farm pond when she was six, nothing was ever the same. She never quite found her place in the Old Order Mennonite community where she grew up. When her husband, who was only Plain on the outside, left the church and their hometown, she had no choice but to follow.
Now, Angie is returning to Lancaster County divorced and educated, both forbidden by her upbringing. At the same time she learns her father is dead, her family disowns her to keep their secrets and minimize the shame she’d always been to them.
Alone and jobless, all she has is a rented apartment in a neighborhood known as Zook’s Corner. Other tenants are Ty and his disabled son Scotty. The Best boys have their own sad story. Angie’s nature as a helper, Ty’s as a people-fixer, and Scotty’s as a joker bond the three together in a warm, healing friendship Angie wishes would become something more.
But who is she to ask for happiness in a world she doesn’t understand?

About the Author
One of my earliest memories is going to the library. I read a lot until I started writing seriously about 3 years ago. Some of my greatest joys when I was teaching was talking or listening to students talk about books and giving them time to write whatever they wanted. I live with my husband and two cats in a cozy home near Phoenix, AZ. We have two adult children in PA who also write. When I'm not writing, I like knitting while watching TV or movies. I love sewing, crafting, taking walks, sometimes painting and singing loudly in the car and shower. My husband and I attend a small church we love and where we are becoming more involved. Life is good!
