Synopsis

Bestselling Author Judith Miller Debuts New Series Set in the Amana Colonies

When Karlina Richter finds out that a new shepherd will be sent to East Amana, she fears she'll no longer be able to help her father with the sheep. She'll be relegated back to kitchen work, a job she dislikes. Her fears increase when Anton Becker arrives and shows little interest in the flock--or in divulging why he's been sent to East. Dare she trust Anton to help her father, or is he keeping secrets that will impact them all?

After learning that her father will be transferred from Cincinnati to a job in Texas, Dovie Cates decides she wants to visit the Amana Colonies, where her mother spent her formative years. She writes to relatives still living in the Colonies and is invited to spend some time there. Soon after her arrival, Dovie meets Berndt, the handsome young man who delivers bread to the kitchen house each day. But when Dovie begins to ask questions about her mother's past, no one seems willing to tell her anything, so Dovie decides to take matters into her own hands. Will her decision spell disaster for her future with Berndt?

    A hidden truth

    I enjoyed this book very much. The storyline and characters were a pleasure to read about. This was a very different way of life that we judge and should mayby have a more open mind. I definitely want to read more of these books. Thanks

    Perfect

    It was a really amazing journey reading through this book. At first, I didn't imagine that I'd enjoy it but as I delved in, I came to cherish the book dearly and will remember time spent reading it fondly.

    A Hidden Truth

    This is a delightful story that brings to life following God's plan for your life. I enjoyed the story and learning about life in the Amana colony, I think they are similar to what I know of the Huteriate colonies in Canada. I loved how a young woman started out looking for the truth to her mother's past and along the way discovered her own future and God's direction for her life.

She is looking for answers. Her mother always seemed sad and she wanted to understand why. She met resistance.
