I read this at the suggestion of my grandmother.
Our family comes from Pennsylvania and remember seeing Amish buggies on the road when we went to visit family.
This story takes place in a town in PA where there are Amish and Menonite families living near the "english" (non-amish).
A woman moves to this town to be near her father's family and start a midwife practice. She finds she is living near her mother's family too, whom she has never met.
This reminded me of home and family, it is very touching.
