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.

    Northkill, book 1 Northkill Amish*****

    by Bob Hostetler and J.M. Hochstetler

    In the year 1738 Jacob Hochstetler and his family left Europe and its persecution and sailed to America, in hopes to live in freedom and worship according to their Anabaptist beliefs. They settled in Northkill, Pennsylvania, a wilderness frontier, joining other members of their church in the Northkill Amish Mennonite community. After 18 years of peace, the French and Indian War rages all around them shattering their peace and endangering their lives.

    This is a remarkable story of the authors' ancestors. I was captured from the first page to the last. The Northkill area was described in such a way I could envision it as I read the story. It helped to have the map included in the book, which I referred to during Jacob and his children's ordeal. According to their beliefs of nonresistance, Jacob did not fight the indians when they appeared at their home. The struggle with remaining nonresistant was clearing shown as Jacob and his family were faced with a decision whether to fight or trust God for their deliverance. What followed was heartbreaking, tearing families apart. Northkill is full of heart-pounding suspense and drama that will keep you captivated to the end. The story has remained with me even after reading it. I impatiently await the second book coming out next year. Fantastic story!

    ~~ I won a copy of this book from the authors on Colonial Quill and was not required to leave a review~~

    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!
