Summary:
Lydia can't believe she is Mrs. Samuel Bontrager, or that she has a six month old daughter at the age of 16. As baby Mattie grows fussy by the day, Lydia wonders how she will survive a lifetime of marriage to a man she doesn't love, at least not in the way she wants. Samuel knows that he and Lydia did the right thing by marrying when Lydia became pregnant. He has even grown to love Lydia, though he never seems able to say the words out loud. What if she doesn't love him back? After all, she pushes him away whenever he tries to draw closer. When Lydia and Samuel introduce their mutual friends Beverly and Joseph to each other, they are as envious as they are delighted to watch their friends fall in love. But just as Samuel thinks Lydia might be softening to him, she gets involved in investigating the mysterious past of a local homeless woman, a curiosity that threatens to drive the couple further apart.
