Youâ€™re invited back to Stoney Ridge for a story of dreams deferred and hopes fulfilled inÂ The Devoted.
Bright, curious, and restless, Ruthie Stoltzfus loves her family but is stuck in a sea of indecision about her future: Should she stay Amish? Or should she leave? Sheâ€™s done all she can to prepare to goâ€“passed the GED, saved her moneyâ€“but she canâ€™t quite set her journey into motion.
Patrick Kelly is a young man on a journey of his own. Heâ€™s come to Stoney Ridge to convert to the Amish and has given himself thirty days to learn the language, drive a buggy, and adapt to â€œeverything Plain.â€ Time, to Patrick, is of the essence. Every moment is to be cherished, especially the hours he spends with Ruthie, his Penn Dutch tutor.
Ruthieâ€™s next-door neighbor and cunning ex-boyfriend, Luke Schrock, is drawn to trouble like a moth to a flame. Rebellious, headstrong, defiant, Luke will do anything to win Ruthie backâ€“anythingâ€“and Patrick Kelly is getting in his way.
