Against the peaceful night sky, a barn BURNS Sarah Kauffman sought permission from her church elders to paint murals on a few of the Amish communitys barns. Each was designed like an old-fashioned quilt square, representing a piece of the Amish traditions Sarah loved. The works of art were intended to draw more tourists to the Home Valley in the struggling economy.
But instead, they invited a menace. One by one, each barn is set ablaze and destroyed. The arson fires spread fear through the communityamong Amish and Englischers alike.
Arson investigator Nate MacKenzie, an outsider, struggles to investigate the crime scenes while adhering to Amish ways. As the fires rage, beliefs are challenged, a way of life is questioned and family secrets are exposed. Now Sarah wonders if shes being punished for her pridefulnessor whether theres a more malevolent will at work.
