Is it wrong to hope for the impossible?
Rachel Beachy wants something she can't have - her sister's boyfriend. Silas Swartley has been in love with Anna since they were children, and Rachel has desired Silas nearly as long.
Like Job from the Bible, Rachel feels that her swiftly moving days are spent without hope. But when Anna unexpectedly leaves the Amish faith, Rachel's hope is rekindled. She initiates a campaign to win Silas's heart - and begins to fill her hope chest.
Can Silas set the pain of Anna's rejection aside and see Rachel as anything more than a child? Will Rachel be disappointed in Silas and in God, or will she learn the true meaning of hope?
