A Robin’s Snow
While curious of the world outside her Amish community, Annie Finley’s love for her husband, Daniel, and their son, Jacob, is why she’s content to stay. A devastating accident one stormy night changes that, propelling Annie beyond those boundaries. With the help of two women who sell Annie’s quilts, she learns those responsible for the accident are ruthless owners of a newspaper dynasty who’ll do anything to keep the presses running. A plan is devised enabling Annie to shed her simplicity and travel to Philadelphia where she infiltrates that dynasty, moving amongst them as one of them until the moment when she must make her move—a move with grave consequences reaching all the way to the White House in a fight over the Second Amendment.
