Is staying with one guy worth being separated from family and friends forever? That's the decision Rose Gluck has to make.
Raised in a strict Jehovah's Witness congregation in rural Missouri where romance is a four-letter word and life is charted from childhood, Rose's prospects as the future wife of Clinton Greer, the boorish son of the authoritarian congregation overseer, do not seem especially bright.
However, when Wyatt True joins their congregation, a possibility of a new relationship emerges, along with new trials. Through their growing friendship, Rose begins to understand the deeper truths of love. Meanwhile, Rose's grandmother worries that she is being led down the same road that caused Rose's mother to be lost.
But are true love and happiness worth exiting what she always considered true religion? After all, her choice has eternal consequences-in the most final sense of the word.
