Anna had lived in the community all of her life, not even leaving for Rumspringa when all of her friends had done so. She loved her family, her community, and everything about their culture and faith...apart from one little thing that had troubled her all her days. The culture dictated that she should not sing and dance too much in public, not be loud or attract attention upon herself, and should be quiet most of the time. The problem Anna had with this, was that she loved to sing, to dance, to be bright and outgoing, and to be a positive soul in the world.

Mary misses her friend very much and becomes lonesome after her mother dies in a farming accident.

Mark King was an elderly Amish man who lived alone. Partly out of choice, and partly because his seven (now adult) children could no longer cope with his ways. He did care about things and people, but felt unable to show it. Each year when Christmas comes around he feels himself becoming more stern and angry and resentful. He does not celebrate Christmas at all other than to attend prayer meetings etc., and distances himself from the community for weeks at a time. Could the sad, and bitter old man find happiness once again or will he be lonely for the rest of his life?

"I’m Katie Knepp from Gasthof Village , Indiana. I’m headed south. For Texas”. Peter turned to face the man who still shrouded him in his massive shadow. Katie watched as the stranger on the little hill lifted his hand to his mouth and plucked a cigarette from his lips. The breeze fluttered his coat as he stood unmoving, staring at them. The pair of pistols that hung on his hips caught the sun and shone out, making Katie squint against the blinding metallic glare. Silver devils, Katie thought. Someone once described pistols like that as silver devils.
The elders had been predicting a cold snap for many weeks now, but nobody could have expected what was to happen next. In the town, the Englischers had their machines to clear roads, but the community just had shovels and each other. After prayers, the community left the prayer house to make their way home just as the snow began to fall. They all looked skyward, for the sky was a dull grey, laden with snow, and the flakes of snow seemed so large that the children ran around trying to catch them.
Samuel Hilty had a secret. He had lived in the community for over 10 years when, at just 18, as a young Amish youth, he had walked into the community one Christmas day where he now lived as a 28-year-old man and had lied about his past to stay in their community. Since that day, he had been a good and decent man, working to serve Gott and all who needed help both in and outside of their village. The truth that only he and Gott knew was eating away at him inside, though, and he knew things needs sorting.
