After Years of Hardship, Jenny's Life Appears Perfect. So Why Does Something Seem to Be Missing?
Jenny Bontrager finally feels loved and cherished by her husband, Matthew, and his children. Life seems golden with both her family and career as a writer. Then one day her grandmother, Phoebe, falls ill, and Jenny cares for her. As she reaches into Phoebe's closet for a robe, Jenny finds a letter from her father dated the summer when she was nearly eighteen. As she struggles to understand her father's words, Jenny's love for him, and her recently renewed faith and trust in God are thrown into question again. And without warning, her perfect life is thrown into question . . .
     

 

 A Time for Peace Discussion Questions: by Barbara Cameron


 

Please don’t read before completing the book as the questions contain spoilers!

1. Jenny studied to join the Amish church before she married Matthew. She knows that she—and her Amish friends and family—aren’t saints. But she experiences unaccustomed envy when her sister-in-law conceives. Have you ever envied someone? What was the situation? What did you do about it?

 

 

2. Jenny inherited a ready-made family when she married Matthew: little Annie, Mary, and Joshua. Many people have stepchildren these days. Do you? How are they the same—or different—from your own children?

 

 

3. Chris—Jenny’s brother-in-law—also converted to the Amish faith. Did you convert to a different religion when you married? How did you adjust?

 

 

4. Hannah—Jenny’s sister-in-law—practiced forgiveness when she was injured by a man who carried a grudge against Chris. What do you think about the Amish practice of forgiveness? Do you think they are right to refuse to prosecute those who try to harm them or in some way break a law?

 

 

5. Jenny’s family loves to tease her about her cooking. Many people don’t know how to cook these days. Do you like to cook or do you prefer to buy ready-made food or eat out? If you like to cook, what’s your favorite thing to cook?

 

 

6. Jenny is devastated when she finds her grandmother ill. Since Phoebe is her only living relative, she experiences real anxiety at losing her. Have you lost a beloved mother, father, or grandparent? How did you cope?

 

 

7. When she goes to get clothes for her grandmother, Jenny unexpectedly finds a letter that changes everything for her. Have you ever discovered a family “secret” and had
it change how you felt about someone you loved?

 

 

8. Friends of Jenny’s decide to make a major change in their lives, downsizing and living simpler. Have you ever done this or thought about it?

 

 


9. Joy, Jenny’s friend, asks her if she’s ever considered adoption. Have you adopted? What do you think of adopting?

 

 

10. When her stepson is hurt, Jenny discovers she has much to learn about God’s will and obedience to rules and to God. Sometimes it’s hard to be obedient to God or to have faith that He has a plan. Sometimes it takes faith you feel you don’t have at the time. How do you deal with that?

 

 


11. Jenny’s relationship with her husband changes when she discovers he kept part of the secret. It affects their marriage. People say “don’t go to bed angry” but their distance isn’t because of anger but because of a difference in culture. How have you resolved differences in your marriage or significant relationship?

 

 

12. Jenny wrestles with what she calls “unanswered prayer.” Do you feel if you don’t get the answer or thing that you’ve prayed for that God hasn’t listened or given you what you prayed for? How do you feel? What do you do?
