Conclusion to Historical Tale of Amish in Mexico

Thoughtfully and well told story, based on true events in the 1920s, Though Mountains Fall is the third and final installment of The Daughters of Caleb Bender, which details the trek from Ohio to Mexico, the eventual failing of the Amish community, and their move back to Ohio . . . fraught with a deadly outbreak of diphtheria, kidnapping and killing by bandits, and then ever menacing raids by the federales, culminating in the rape of a young Amish girl, the Amish community held vigil and posted guard over their settlement . . . hope rang anew when an Amish bishop came to visit, planting crops and beginning church services . . . but ultimately becoming the deciding factor in the death of the Amish settlement . . . the bishop could not, would not move to Mexico permanently . . . it was too dangerous, he could not bring his family to such a wild, menacing place . . . meanwhile Caleb's daughters, the glue that held the family together, continued LIVING . . . GIVING . . . LOVING . . . not even the shunning of their sister, Miriam (for marrying Domingo) could deter them . . . for even that was just "the law" . . . Emma, sweet, sweet Emma, with her pearls of wisdom planted much more than her trees . . . and Rachel, with her healing hands, learned how to heal more than the body . . . the conclusion to the trilogy is everything and more than I could have imagined . . . Jesus came to set us free . . . from ourselves, from rituals, from bitterness . . . and to lead us into the light . . .
