When Henry Edison turns up in Lancaster County to survey farm women about their domestic contributions during the 1930s, the last thing Amish housewife Gloria Grabill has time for is the government agent s unending questions. Gloria s hands are already full with a farm to run alongside her husband, a houseful of children, and an" English" neighbor, Minerva Swain, who has been trying Gloria s patience for forty years. Gloria s oldest daughter, Polly, wants nothing more than the traditional path of an Amish farmer s wife, but everything she does seems to push Thomas Coblentz further away. While the Great Depression shadows the country in gloom, can Amish and "English" neighbors in Lancaster County grasp the goodness that will sustain hope?"
