Publisher's Summary

Hannah Yoder loves her quiet life on the banks of the Conestoga Creek. In 1842, this corner of Lancaster County is settled and peaceful - yet problems lurk beneath the placid façade. Hannah's father worries about the spread of liberal ideas from their Mennonite and Brethren neighbors. And Hannah blames herself for a tragedy that struck their home nine years ago. She strives to be the one person who can bind the threads of her family together in spite of her mother's ongoing depression and her sister's rejection of their family. But her world is threatening to unravel.  

When two young men seek her hand in marriage - one offering the home she craves and the other promising the adventure of following God's call west - Hannah must make a choice. Faithfully perform her duties to her family? Or defy her father and abandon her community?  

With a tender hand, Jan Drexler teases out the threads of a romance that will captivate listeners in this brand new Amish historical series.

Minute by minute through agonies of a family.

Details the agony of a grief stricken mother who is trapped in deep depression, the despair of her caring husband, and the consequences over time to their five children. Against this background, a spoiled, heedless daughter and a hardworking, sensible sister make decisions with varying consequences in this saga of shared suffering. Only if you enjoy immersing yourself, thought by thought and moment by moment in the acute sufferings of others, would I recommend this book.

Great story!

I really enjoyed this book! Coming from an Amish/Mennonite background, the details in the book are spot on! I listened as I drove from Goshen, IN to Whitewater, KS the time flew by!
Jan, I enjoyed meeting your father! It was he who suggested I give your books a try, now I need to download the next two before I start driving again!
