All her life she has longed for the forbidden things, but will her
dreams come at a price too dear to pay?
Why would Katie Lapp's mother, a plain and simple Amishwoman who embraces the Old Ways, hide a beautiful satin baby dress in the attic?

The staggering answer comes on the eve of Katie's wedding to widower Bishop John, throwing her life--present and future--into confusion.
