A kidnapping in Amish country! Two little sisters, being watched over by their barely older brother, are spirited away and never heard from again. The young boy never totally recovers from what happened on his watch and eventually lives Englisch in an effort to forget and assuage his guilt. Their mother, Rebecca Riehl now has lost three children and misses each one desperately every day of her life yet as a Amish wife and mother must “keep on keeping on”. And the girls? They want truth but in different ways and can their mothers forgive them for the decisions they make?
