|Plot Summary of Lifted Up By Angels|
Leah has taken a summer job at an Indiana bed-and-breakfast to be near Ethan, a young Amish boy who she met when she shared a hospital room with his younger sister Rebekah. Leah's bone cancer has been in remission after a course of chemo and a visit by someone named Gabriella.
As the love between Leah and Ethan grows, they explore the conflicts between the ways of the "English" and the Amish. Ethan even tries some "english" ways, like driving and even eating fast food. The question that still remains unsolved is, whether Ethan will leave the Amish community to be with Leah or will he follow his father's ways and stay Amish?
