Summary:
"Twenty years ago, Cora Pooler, a young Amish woman, abandoned a newborn child in the village of Wander Lane. Her deed was discovered and reported to the sheriff-and then to Bishop Herrfort. Because Cora was unwilling to repent and would not explain the circumstances of her actions, the uncompromising Herrfort placed her under the bann. An outcast in her community, she knew the shunning would continue until she obeyed the regulations of the Amish rule book. Cora left the Amish community to live in the English world. Older now, her head and heart are filled with the past. She needs answers. Cora Pooler returns to Wander Lane. Will she discover what happened to the baby she deserted? Can she resolve the mystery of her sister's untimely death? Will those who still remember her ignore the imposed shunning? Will Aaron welcome her back? Is he married--or still free? What about Daniel in her English world? Can she forget him? Will the Bishop allow her back into the Community? Will she finally know who she is ... Amish or English?"--back cover.
