Everything just seems all wrong as far as Bethel and Gideon are concerned. His wife has recently died in childbirth, and she is being pursued by a widower that turns her stomach. Then she is accused of being pregnant by Gideon, who she’s never met. He is being blackmailed by her father to marry Bethel, even though she tells him it isn’t true.
The Amish are so strict about not being alone with one of the opposite sex, that when they are, they are doomed to marry, whether anything has happened between them or not. I felt Bethel’s pain as she found herself in a strange community, away from her dad and married to someone she doesn’t know. Even his family are cold to her, not welcoming. She felt so alone. And here is Gideon with a three month old and still grieving for his dead wife.
By Amish law they are married for life so how will they ever work it all out? And why is the Amish man Rodney accusing her of being pregnant? Where is God she keeps asking? Has He abandoned her just like her father did?
Follow along to see what happens to this unfortunate couple as they try to do life and please God as well.
