Product Description

Set in Pennsylvania from 1810-1861: The murder of an Amish baby goes unsolved for more than 50 years, greatly disturbing these Pennsylvania settlers and their newly formed communities. Some families chose to leave the area and continue west, to Ohio, to escape their concerns. Miller's debut novel grips you from the very beginning as she dives deep, illuminating the people's passions and spirit beneath their outwardly stoical Amish appearance.

Publisher's Description

          This historical novel, literary and engaging, examines a close-knit community of Amish pioneers over several decades (right up to the eve of the American Civil War). Employing eight different voices, Miller unpeels the cohesions and tensions as settlers move west while others stay behind. Beneath the surface but never quite forgotten is the unsolved murder of an Amish baby (based on a true incident). This is a story of judgment and misplaced responsibility, of attempts at love and forgiveness, and finally of grace despite unspeakable loss. It is told lyrically from within this often-idealized but sometimes scarred human community. An unforgettable story.

    Did not like this book. I have a full Amish library & this was boring & did not keep me interested. I did not like going from person to person, I would have liked it to flow like a regular book that has chapters! And I too guessed who the murderer was right away.

    This is somewhat of a difficult read- each chapter is a different individual in the the story telling their part of the story. It is a good story but difficult to get thru if you are not used to that type of book- I prefer a book with a "flow" to it.

    I do not like stories that skip from one character to thenext. I also knew who the killer was from the first introto the character. For me it is not a good book.

    Excellent book, as it keeps you guessing until the very end on who murdered this baby girl. The ending will surprise you. However, you must be very dilligent in keeping up with the many different characters or you will get lost.

    Many glowing reviews on the back cover led me to buy the book. It took me forever to slog through it because I couldn't keep all the characters straight and the story didn't move. It's a dark, sad story and has left me in a sad mood. I'd never recommend it to another person because it's depressing.
