Missing Your Smile

       When Susan Hostetler has a falling out with her boyfriend, Thomas Stoll, she leaves her Amish home and moves to Asbury Park, New Jersey, to experiment in Englisha life.  There she learns to drive a car, takes her GED test, and dates young and handsome Duane Moran.  Back home,  her parents are devastated and miss their daughter terribly.  But what can they do?  Susan has a mind of her own.

      Just as Susan is enjoying her new life, her plans are interrupted.   She meets Teresa Long, a young, unwed, expectant mother who asks Susan to help her have her baby adopted by an Amish family. 

     As Susan is drawn into the young woman's life, she also finds herself drawn back to her Amish roots.   When her relationship with Duane ends, can her heart truly return to the life she has left behind........and to Thomas, who is waiting for her?

Deacon Ray gets wind of the situation and forbids the unwed mother from attending the church services, fearing she will pollute the young people of the community.  But soon Teresa has two suitors among the Amish--Yost Byler, the community's resident bachelor, and Deacon Ray's son, James.

With two Amish men interested in her, Teresa has a decision to make.....and so does Susan.  Will Susan stay in the community and marry Thomas, the sturdy man who proclaims his love for her........or will she also follow her heart?
