Annie Beiler is a spunky, spirited schoolteacher, but

she's struggled ever since the man she was promised

to "jumped the fence" and left the Amish of Seymour.

She needs a man who is committed to his Amish beliefs.

And now, she's struggling to regain the trust of the school

board members and the parents of her pupils for taking her

class on an unauthorized field trip to a nearby Civil War

battlefield. She's put on probation, and one wrong step

could cost her the position permanently.

Joshua Esh of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, moved

to Missouri ostensibly as part of the man swap meant to

bring new blood into the community. Annie Beiler caught

his attention the moment he arrived in Seymour, but he's

disheartened to discover that she is promised to another

man Luke, who left the Amish but vowed to return one

day and claim "his" Annie. So, Josh fills his social calendar

with singings and frolics, taking a different girl home from

every event with the exception of Annie, since she is

already committed to someone.

When Luke comes home, Annie pushes him away, and

Josh Esh comes to her rescue. But the situation becomes

awkward, since Josh is staying with Luke's family. An

awareness of each other's attraction to Annie causes the

awkwardness to escalate, and Annie's father soon invites

Josh to stay with his family. But not all of the Beilers are

happy about this new arrangement
