The Lambright family is well known and respected in their Amish community. The eldest daughter of the family, Abby, runs a popular sewing shop, and lives on her own. Abby has been in love with buggy maker James Graber for years, but he is to marry her younger sister Susanna.

But when their wedding day arrives, Susanna has disappeared. At first, they all believe that she just has cold feet, but they are shocked when they discover her alarming secret. Suddenly there is a rift in their once very close community. Abby struggles to help her sister while trying to maintain relationships with those around her, including James. Can she help her sister find redemption? Will her family ever recover from Susanna’s mistake? And will she ever find love for herself?

Abby Finds Her Calling is a moving story about the power of forgiveness. Abby is a wonderful character who strives to make others happy, often neglecting herself. Her ability to forgive her sister and accept her mistakes is something that we can all learn from. If you’re a fan of novels about the Amish community, this is a story you’re sure to enjoy.
