Rachel Mast finds the Amish are no more immune from crime than the
people they call the English. It's been years since restless Rachel
fled her family's farm as a teen. Starting with only the
eighth-grade education afforded most Amish kids, she earned an MBA
from Wharton and became successful in business. But Rachel never
felt at home in the English world. So she came back to run a
bed-and-breakfast in Stone Mill, near central Pennsylvania's
thriving Amish community. Now she lives between the two worlds.
Her boyfriend, Evan Parks, is a state trooper, but her best friend
remains her cousin Mary Aaron Hostetler. Her uncle Aaron and aunt
Hannah, tolerant of Rachel's English ways, allow her to drive Mary
Aaron and a group of Amish teens to swim at the local quarry, where
they're horrified to find the body of Beth Glick. Like Rachel, Beth
left Amish life, but unlike Rachel, she left after her baptism and
therefore was shunned by the community. What caused her to come back,
dressed in Amish garb, to a place she knew she would be unwelcome?
Rachel is determined to find out. 2015.
