Summary
Sixteen-year-old Faith has worked full time in her parents' Amish resturant since she finished eighth grade. She loves her amish community - and the recent romantic attentions of her longtime friend, Gideon. When her sister seems to be getting to friendly with Englischers, and her parents are in a buggy accident, Faith only wants to escape into her dream of joining the church and getting married. But then a local newspaper runs a story about a child named Adriana who was kidnapped fifteen years earlier, and everything Faith has held true comes into question. Suddenly the community Faith has known her whole life seems unreal. Can she even trust her own family? And how will she ever find homeagain if she no longer belongs in the world she knows best?

Summary
Faith Pinkham may only be 16, but she's devoted to the Amish church. She works in her family's restaurant, likes an Amish boy who seems to like her back, and is content...even if she doesn't always get along with her sister. But her world is knocked askew when she learns that her real name is Adriana, and that she was kidnapped as a toddler and left on her Amish family's doorstep. With the outside world (in the form of police and wealthy biological parents) now a very real part of her life, Faith's future looks nothing like she'd planned. This 1st in the Amish Mercies series offers readers a fresh story with thought-provoking questions and a charming romance. -- Description by Dawn Towery
