With her parents' twentieth anniversary approaching, eighteen-year-old Sylvia Miller finds her father's cherished brass tinderbox left unlocked. Against her better judgment, Sylvia opens the heirloom, not realizing that what she is about to discover will splinter apart her happy life and alter everything for her close-knit Old Order Amish family. As the long-kept secret emerges into the light of day, can the Millers find a way forward through the turmoil to a place of forgiveness?

Beverly Lewis takes us into the lives of the Miller's and how an event from the past can rear it's head unexpectedly and cause a multitude of problems. The tinderbox should be called "Pandora's Box" as when it is opened a whole lot of issues escape.
