This week we have four new selections for the Library.
- Bonnet Strings by Saloma Miller Furlong: NON-Fiction – suspended between two cultural worlds, Saloma tells a compelling story about her struggle to decide which world to claim as her own. This books presents a view of Amish life more realistic than the romanticized fictional accounts of some Amish novels.
- Jacob’s Choice: Return to Northkill by Ervin R. Stutzman: Historical fiction about the most famous Amish experience in colonial America (“Indian massacre”) which describes how one man’s commitment to pacifism leads to a season of captivity, a complicated romance, and unrelenting search for missing family members, and an astounding act of forgiveness and reconciliation.
- The Letters by Suzanne Woods Fisher: When widow Rose Schrock turns her Amish farmhouse into a bed and breakfast, she expects there might be problems, but what she doesn’t expect is that the guests will spill their problems into her life and heart.
- Unspoken by Dee Henderson: Law officers found her two abductors, killed them, and rescued her, but it took four very long years. She’s changed her identity, found a profession she loves, and rebuilt her life.
