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.
"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.)

full story not the norm for amish fiction
I enjoy the audio much more than the print as it adds extra depth to the story.
The narrator did an excellent job reading and voicing the characters. My favorite character she voiced was Ida Mae.
This was easy to listen and follow. The narrator did an excellent job with the Amish accents.
I'm looking forward to hearing many more books narrated by this artist.
