When Katie Lapp finds the satin infant gown in the trunk in her parents' attic, she knows it holds a secret she must discover. Why else would her Amish mother, a plain and simple woman who embraces the Old Order laws, hide the beautiful baby dress in the attic? But nothing could have prepared Katie for the startling news that stumbles out of her anguished parents on the eve of her wedding to Bishop John.

What a refreshing author Beverly Lewis is - not only does she give you insight to the mysterious Amish commmunities but she also gives a heart warming story. I fully recommend her books to anyone.
