Publisher's Summary

Rachel Stoltzfus never imagined she’d be the talk of her Old Order Mennonite community until whispers stir the moment her belly swells with new life. Unmarried and refusing to repent by naming the partner in her sin, Rachel feels the wrath of the religious sect as she is shunned by those she loves most and eventually forced to leave - driven out by her twin sister’s husband, the bishop.
But secrets run deep in this cloistered community, and the bishop is hiding some of his own, threatening his conscience and his very soul. When the life of Rachel’s baby is at stake, choices must be made that will bring the darkness to light, forever changing the lives of those who call Copper Creek home.


What the Critics Say

"A must-read that will draw you into a secretive world of sin and senselessness and leave you with the hope of one set free." (Julie Cantrell, New York Times best-selling author of Into the Free.)

A good story with a weak & predictable ending. Too much of a happy ever after.
