When the body of an infant is discovered in an Amish barn, residents of Lancaster County are horrified. The investigation takes a stunning turn when the police allege that circumstantial evidence suggests that eighteen-year-old Katie Fisher—an unmarried Amish woman believed to be the newborn's mother—took the child's life.
When Ellie Hathaway, a disillusioned big city attorney, arrives to defend Katie, their two cultures collide and for the first time in her high-profile career, Ellie faces a justice system very different from her own. Desperate to connect with Katie and unravel a complicated murder case, Ellie must also confront her own fears and desires when a man from her past unexpectedly reenters her life.
