Kit Matthews tries to avoid thinking about God — and her unknown birth mother — altogether. She loves her family and is content with her life in California. That is, until her parents decide to move to Utah, the land of Mormons.
New surroundings and culture shock do nothing to help Kit's social life. It is only with the help of Janet, a new friend, that Kit begins to adjust to life in Utah, as well as to the Mormon culture. Janet's older brother, Adam, is more than happy to befriend Kit, but when their feelings begin to go beyond friendship, Kit is torn. Does she really want to devote her heart to a boy who is going to leave her for two years to serve a mission for his faith? Can she support him when she doesn't even believe in his religion?
As Kit looks deeper, she realizes that it isn't Adam's faith she needs to come to terms with — it's her own.
