A Simple Singing
series: Sisters of Lancaster County, The
How Will She Choose Between the Life She's Always Envisioned and One She Never Imagined?
For years, Marie Bachmann thought of herself as the "good" daughter. She was the most loving to their mother and the most dedicated to their Amish way of life. But when a Mennonite farmhand, Gordon Martin, shows interest in her, she can't help but be flattered--until her mother sends her off to Florida. While there, Marie begins spending time with rebellious Elijah Jacobs, the bishop's son from back home.
When Gordon shows up in Florida to volunteer at a homeless shelter, her life becomes even more complicated. At the same time, her aunt begins telling her about the uncommon bravery of one of Marie's Civil War-era ancestors . . . a story that begins to work at Marie's heart.
Marie hopes returning home may simplify life, but Elijah soon follows. As she grapples with whether she should court Elijah or leave the church for Gordon, the story of Annie Bachmann shines a light on what God has for Marie's future.
