Jake and Hannah Byler are adjusting to life in their Amish community in rural Montana. While Jake works long days as a furniture maker and newly appointed minister, Hannah stays busy keeping their home in order. Both anticipate their baby's birth with joy. When word of the Mennonite tent revival spreads and worry about losing church members mounts, Hannah's sister arrives and quickly catches the eye of the young bachelor whose brother left the church during the last revival. At the same time, Jake and Hannah's neighbor - an Englisha - announces his interest in one of the Amish widows.
