Englisher Wyatt Winslow asks Anna King to go with him on his plane. Will she risk displeasing her bishop father by doing something against their Ordnung?
Eighteen-year-old Anna King wants to experience new things before she decides to join her Amish church. Although she enjoys being a midwife, Anna talks with her new friend, Wyatt Winslow, about doing something different. She wonders if college might be a possibility for her to get a nursing degree. She might even return to working as a veterinarian assistant. The handsome Wyatt likes talking with Anna about her future. Although her bishop father wouldn’t like her spending time with Wyatt, her friend Maggie invited him to their weekly Tuesday lunches.
Wyatt stays with his Grandma Mattie for the summer because his grandfather died recently. He wants to be there for her and to help his Amish relatives with farm work.
Wyatt was surprised and deeply hurt when his college girlfriend dumped him after their graduation. He can’t help being attracted to Anna. He asks her to go flying with him, but will she risk it? Flying is forbidden by her church district. She hasn’t taken her kneeling vows, so what could be the problem? If she asks for permission, her father will definitely say no. Anna doesn’t like to be secretive, but she wants adventure in her life.
When his cousin, Clint Lambright, becomes interested in the beautiful Anna and takes her home after a youth get-together, Wyatt isn’t pleased. He doesn’t want the competition, especially since Clint is Amish.
Anna notices Wyatt never complains about missing certain things like: electricity, air conditioning, and television. Would Wyatt be able to leave his world to join their Plain church, so they could have a future together? In spite of Clint’s interest in her, Anna feels God might have brought Wyatt to Fields Corner because he could be the one for her.
