In a small Amish community, three barns are burnt down almost simultaneously. FBI agent Sally Russwell is sent in to investigate this possible hate crime. What she finds however is a community that little trust for outsiders or "The English" as they call them. However, in her investigations, Agent Russell makes friends with one entrepreneurial widow, Annie Beiler who has her own curiosity about this stranger. Together, Annie introduces Russell in-depth to this close knit community bearing many appealing attributes. However, as Sally's investigations continue, she discovers secrets that reveal uncomfortable truths about the religious community that are linked to the arson attacks. Written by

But isn't the covenant you keep with your faith, with your people, that you will obey their edicts - all of them - and if you don't, you lose the grace of their fellowship?
If that is all I lose, I lose very little.
Look at the anger in your face, sir, and in your sons' faces. I think you've lost much more.

This is a film that is beatifully done in every sense. Its direction, its acting (Patty Duke is marvelous), its music, its writing, just everything. It's as gorgeous as looking at one of the amish's quilts.
From Hallmark Hall of Fame, this was the year's second highest-rated tv movie.
