Miriam Yoder has a secret...
Miriam's compassionate care for Amos Bland during his last days inspired him to leave her 2,000,000 and one of the nicest farms in the county. Miriam confides in her mamm and daett about the farm-but she can't bring herself to tell anyone about the money. Her entire Amish community, and especially her daett, have often warned about the evils of money.
When Ivan Mast, the young Amish man Miriam once love, wants to rekindle their friendship, Miriam suspects he's discovered her hidden wealth and has plans that aren't inspired by his love for her. Seeking a fresh start where no one knows her, Miriam and her sister, Shirley, travel to faraway Oklahoma to care for her expectant aunt. There she meets Wayne Yutzy, a local greenhouse employee whose interest in her seems genuine.
Has happiness finally found Miriam...or are Wayne's attentions only confirming the truth about the evils of earthly riches?
