Product Description

Northkill is a fictional account closely based on the true story of Jacob Hochstetler and his family, well-known among Amish and Mennonites, who immigrated to this country in early 1738, seeking sanctuary from religious persecution and the freedom to live and worship according to their Anabaptist beliefs. By early 1739 they had settled with other members of their church in the Northkill Amish Mennonite community at the base of the Blue Mountains, near Northkill Creek, for which their community was named. Eighteen years later during the French and Indian War, on the night of September 19-20, 1757, their lives were forever changed when their home was attacked by a war party of Delaware and Shawnee. Three members of the family were killed, and Jacob and two of his sons were carried into captivity among the Indians.

Publisher's Description

In 1738 Jakob Hochstetler and his family arrive in America, seeking sanctuary from religious persecution in Europe and the freedom to live and worship according to their Anabaptist beliefs, which include the doctrine of nonresistance. Along with other members of their church, they settle in the Northkill Amish Mennonite community on the Pennsylvania frontier between civilization and wilderness. They build a home near Northkill Creek, for which their community is named. For eighteen years, the community lives at peace. Then, while the French and Indian War rages, the Hochstetlers way of life is brutally shattered. Early on the morning of September 20, 1757, their home is attacked by a party of Delaware and Shawnee warriors allied with the French. Facing certain death with his wife and children, Jakob makes a wrenching choice that will tear apart his family and change all of their lives forever.

    Once I started to read this book I was unable to put it down! It's such a powerful story. To think that the main characters really went through this trial in real life is quite humbling! I wasn't disappointed!
