Try to imagine not even knowing how to fall, because a hand was always there to catch you. How does someone, excluded from the only community he or she has ever known, go on living? Harvard student Jeremy Stull lives with a devout Amish family to observe their faith and their shunning of those who breach it. He befriends Beulah--a banished Amish woman--but comes no closer to understanding her predicament than he is to fathoming his own bitter exile. For Jeremy, community means Ironwood, a summer camp in the Vermont woods. First as a camper, then as assistant director, Jeremy has found in Ironwood's rituals a sturdy foundation for his life. But when he is blindsided by the seductive charm of Max, a fourteen-year-old boy from Manhattan, all arms and legs and attitude, Jeremy must confront both his own confusing desires and a legacy of disturbing secrets at Ironwood.--From publisher description.
