A Beautiful Story
Bethany Weiss wants out. Out of her house. Out of town. Away from the wagging tongues. Away from the problems. She just wants a fresh start. Her family has been through so much, but that’s not all. Bethany also carries the burden of her own share of personal “stuff” that she has to deal with. So, her solution to is to get out and get away, and that includes getting away from God.
Silas Beiler got out and got away. Away from his family. Away from their issues. And just like Bethany, Silas carries the burden of his own share of personal “stuff.” So, Silas’ solution was also to get out and get away. However, Silas differs from Bethany in that although he’s trying to get away from many things, God isn’t one of them.
Silas and Bethany’s story drew me in right from the first page. Author Laura V. Hilton’s writing has a way of doing that to the point that once you start, you won’t want to put it down until the last word is read. The author is also able to make you feel all of the emotions the characters are feeling, which draws you into the story that much more. Another element that will draw you in is the reality of the issues the characters dealt with. Each issue is a delicate one, and one that many authors will not even attempt to tackle. However, the author flawlessly tackled these sensitive issues with honesty, respect, and tact. All of this together makes Amish Wanderer a beautiful story of love, faith, trust, and forgiveness, that will stay with you long after you are finished reading it.
