Lizzie Glick is excited to be the new school teacher in her Amish community. She can’t think of wanting anything more than that. Her own classroom, a place where she can be in independent and do her own thing. She even gets to teach in a brand new school house.
As her sisters Emma and Mandy fall in love with Joshua and John she wonders if she will ever be able to feel love the way they do. Does she even know what love feels like? How will Stephen fit into her life? He says he loves her but does he really know who she is? She has always been a little head strong and has a competitive nature but does Stephen really understand her that way? Does she love him enough to marry him or is she only feeling friendship? Then Dat’s health problems might put the future of the farm in jeopardy. What is going to happen?
Amidst her happiness of being in the classroom Lizzie find herself needing to grow up and start to make that transition into adulthood.
