A faith of her own
Can Anna Mae heed God's call on her life, even if it means leaving behind everything she knows . . . and everyone she loves?
Ever since Anna Mae's childhood friend Jeremiah left their Amish community, she's questioned her own place in the Amish world. The Amish life feels as if it's closing in on her, and with her mother trying to set her up with potential suitors, Anna Mae feels trapped in a life she's not sure she wants anymore.
But she's never told anyone that she longs for a tiny taste of freedom--freedom that could be very costly.
When Jeremiah suddenly reappears in Middlefield to help his mentor, Yankee veterinarian Dr. Miller, new questions surface for Anna Mae, along with feelings she'd never fully acknowledged before.
As Anna Mae and Jeremiah rekindle their friendship, old feelings take on new meaning. Yet the question still lingers: What is God's plan for her life?
Should she stay, remaining loyal to her Amish family, or does God have a bigger plan--one that provides more freedom than she could imagine?
The answers do not come easily, and God's plan may lead in different directions . . . for both of Anna Mae and Jeremiah.

|display_description||"Jeremiah thought leaving Middlefield was the hardest thing he'd ever do. That was nothing compared to returning home. When Jeremiah left his Amish community to pursue his dream of becoming a veterinarian, he left more than just his faith behind--he walked away from his family and his childhood friend, Anna Mae. Now that he's returned to help out his mentor and work in a Yankee veterinarian practice, Jeremiah must face his past--and the people he betrayed. Anna Mae had finally put the loss of Jeremiah and the broken vow between them behind her. Even though she supported her best friend's pursuit of his dream, she never let on how his departure left her questioning her own place in the Amish world. With his return, new questions arise, along with feelings she'd never fully acknowledged before. As their rekindled friendship begins to turn into something more, Jeremiah and Anna Mae must examine their own faith and their relationship with each other and their families. With both of them torn between loyalty to their loved ones and being pulled in different directions, they must decide whether to heed God's call, even if it means being apart forever"--|
