Rachel has been raised in a Quiverfull family, a fundamentalist movement that encourages large families and a strict adherence to the Bible.  She knows that women should be modest, cheerful, and eventually a loving helpmate to a husband who will make the “godly” decisions for the family.  But, when a former member of her church moves back to town, Rachel begins to wonder about the world outside of Calvary Christian Church and question her own personal destiny.
