Description
EVERY MILE LEADS HER CLOSER TO THE TRUTH.... Glancing at my reflection in the washroom mirror, I didn't focus on my hair peeking out from beneath my Kapp, nor the shape of my features. What I noticed caught me off guard as I studied my tired, even terrified expression. I saw clearly now the uncertainty in my own blue eyes. Is this trip such a good idea, really? Sighing, I knew in my heart I was willing to put up with any awkwardness, even fear, if it meant bringing Mamma home. No matter the gawking eyes or the inconvenience, I ought to cherish the trip for what it meant: A chance for Mamma to start over with a clean slate. I turned on the water once again, washing my hands a second time, as if peering in the mirror had somehow tainted me. Surely by now Mamma understood that leaving without an explanation was a blight on us all. Besides, didn't she feel estranged, even cut off? Wouldn't she like to begin anew...if she could?

Notes

Description
Struggling to come to terms with a grave medical diagnosis, Heather Nelson is determined to forgo traditional medicine--to her father's chagrin--in hopes of finding answers and healing in Amish country. But first, she offers to drive her Amish friend, Grace Byler, to Ohio in order to find Grace's mother. Will mother and daughter, and one seriously ill graduate student, find the answers they long for? Or will "the telling" cause them all further pain?
