Katie Lapp, is preparing to marry the widowed bishop, John Beiler, and become a mother to his sons.

When an "English" woman arrives, searching for Katie's mom, long-held secrets come to the surface.
This is a story that has a few too many coincidences for my taste, but still one that I followed with great interest. Consequence of actions, regrets, rebellion, and restoration are all covered and you get glimpses of another point of view. Great acting, and the film did capture my attention and keep it from beginning to end. This film is based on the book by Beverly Lewis.
