Martha Yoder grew up in the rolling hills of Amish country, lived in an Old Order Amish home, prayed several times a day, and kept the Ordnung, the community set of rules.

Until the day her sin was revealed. Then, her whole world shattered. She left the only life that she knew to drive to Kentucky to start a new life among the Harrodsburg Projects. "If it weren't for the quilter's" she thought every morning, "I would still be back on the farm and back donning a heart-shaped kapp in obedience to God."

 She was right: she had sinned during Rumspringa, and the quilters had found out. The quilters met in her mother's house. The quilters judged sins in her mother's house.

And they chased Martha away in her mother's house.  They took charge as the Bishop, although they were not permitted to do such. And the Bishop never knew...

Until now, as a "basket of secrets" is found at the late quilting judge's home.  The late Amish quilter willed Martha her apple orchard, but there is a catch: Martha must deliver the secret letters to women in her former Amish community, all who had secretly sinned. And some who had quilted in her mother's house.

And had judged Martha more than eight years ago...

While Martha struggles to deliver the notes, she must make friends with the tenant farmer, Ray Miller, at the apple orchard, and he has a secret of his that can change her and Alice's life forever.
