    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!
