We find ourselves embroiled in the world of the Amish community.
The following themes are part of this book World influences. People in charge. People demoted. Corruption. Bullying. Secrets. Growth in Grace. Growth through Maturity. Romance.
Overall I enjoyed this book by Suzanne Woods Fisher.
The man who called him died. David has been demoted but still teaches. There are problems in the Amish community that the leadership is trying to address by David believes they are going about it in a less than godly manner. As he fights that battle, his daughter Katrina fights her own, as does his son Jesse.
Katrina, loves a fellow who has left her. Jesse, struggles with becoming a man. David, realizes in his struggles, that he is lonely and needs support from a loving wife. In the midst of all these struggles they learn that not all is as it seems to be.... there is indeed a snake in the henhouse (so to speak).
Will each of them work their way? How will it all turn out?
I'm loathe to give away too many details lest you find yourself with no reason to read this book yourself. :)
