To the outward eye the small town of Jerusalem, New York is just another small town moving more slowly than city life. But, like any other small town Jerusalem has its secrets. The settlers of Jerusalem who call themselves the English refuse to accept the Mennonites who are buying up the cheap land around them because they look and act different.

But, falling in line with the times and the town has its price. Jerusalem farm girl Jenny Thompson shuns the love of her Mennonite neighbor and best friend Jake Martin to please her social-climbing mother and marry the richest and most popular boy in town.

To central New York farm girl Annie May Parker ancestral heritage is especially important. She is certain the feats and deeds of her forbears whose tales she read in an old but well-kept journal hidden away in the family's one-hundred-year old farmhouse have given her the strength to be the reliable one her hard-working widowed mother relies on.
