David Lapp…

David Lapp survived a “code blue” when he was in a buggy/semi truck accident in Seymour, Missouri. Now after extensive therapy he has lingering mobility problems and is still struggling to find his place in the world.

Lured away from Webster County by thoughts of closed buggies and a postcard friendship he’s developed with an Amish girl in Jamesport, he moves north, hoping for a fresh start. He finds work in the area tying flies and basket weaving, selling his products in the Amish markets in the Jamesport area.

Rachel Miller…

Rachel Miller dreams of travel, but feels tied to her Amish life. She is being courted by Obadiah Graber, but wonders if there’s more to life. When she sees David’s name mentioned in The Budget, she strikes up a pen pal friendship with David while he’s in the hospital and in therapy, consoling him when he and his girlfriend part ways. She never dreams that David will come north and move into her community.

David is still fearful in the buggy, especially in high traffic areas. Feeling he’s called by God to preach, David spends hours in the Bible, but the Amish discourage him, believing their ministers should be drawn by lot. Will David follow his call, even if it takes him out of the Amish church? Will Rachel realize her dream to travel?

Like the coolness of snow at harvest time is a trustworthy messenger to those who send him; he refreshes the spirit of his masters. Proverbs 25:13


The Birdhouse

Twenty-year old Greta Miller’s daed has been injured in a farming accident during the summer.

The supportive Amish community tries to help out, but Gretta and sister must work outside the home to make ends meet. Greta rents a booth at the Farmers’ Market.

Because Greta is still in her rumspringa and free to explore the world, her family selects her to sell her homemade jams, jellies, and preserves to Englischers.

While working at the Amish market, she renews her acquaintance with Amish man Josh Yoder who crafts birdhouses for sale at the Amish Market.

Josh wants to court Greta, but years ago, he made the mistake of rejecting her during a seemingly innocent game—which resulted in him leaving the Amish. Three years later, he’s back and she wants nothing to do with him.

Josh struggles to fit in and rebuild relationships he’s destroyed. Knowing Greta’s family needs help, he steps in, hoping to win Greta back. When Greta admires one of his birdhouses, he gives it to her, hoping that would help to open the door to more.

But as their friendship begins to grow a series of unfortunate events pull Greta away from the Amish, leaving her rejected by those she loves. Will Greta get beyond her family’s distrust and return home? How will she prove her innocence? Or will she remain outside her Amish community?
