1867. Ruth Holtz has more blessings than she can count; a loving husband, an abundant farm, beautiful children, and the warm embrace of the Amish community. Then the Englisch arrive, spreading incredible stories of free land in the West and inspiring her husband to dream of a new life in Idaho.
Breaking the rules of their Order, Ruth\'s husband packs up his pregnant wife and their four children and joins a wagon train heading west. Though Ruth is determined to keep separate from the Englisch, as stricture demands, the harrowing journey soon compels her to accept help from two unlikely allies; Hortence, the preacher\'s wife, and the tomboyish, teasing Sadie.
But as these new friendships lead to betrayal, what started as a quest for a brighter future ends with Ruth making unthinkable sacrifices, risking faith and family, and transforming into a woman she never imagined she\'d become.
