Rachel Mast, a 29-year-old Amish mother of four children, was suffering. Isolated and with no one to share her deepest pain and most intimate thoughts, she turns to a close friend, Marty Keane, someone outside the Amish faith. Together, as an unlikely team--one dealing with the horrific mental illness of her husband and the other trying to heal over the suicide of his wife--Rachel and Marty form a deep bond to help cope and get through each day. She keeps a diary. He observes, listens and comforts. They walk together in a journey that leads to one of the most dramatic changes ever witnessed in Amish society. With more than 30 years of involvement with Amish society, writer Tim Moriarty creates a picture of how Amish and Mennonites think, how they talk and how they deal with conflict in a society that tries to keep conflict away. (complete with pictures and a bonus section on questions you may have of Amish society)
