Publisher's Description

When Bridget Behr and her family migrate from a bustling Amish community in Ohio to the remote and isolated Upper Peninsula of Michigan, they’re met with an ugly surprise: the house they had bought sight unseen is an uninhabitable wreck. While her father and brother try to find work in the area, the family is forced to live in tents until the house and barn are rebuilt. Bridget can’t shake the guilt that it was her fault her family moved—and is too afraid to trust anyone, especially the flirtatious, overly-friendly Amish man who lives next door.

Gabriel Lapp has made Michigan his home out of necessity, but can’t wait to move back to Florida with its sunshine and warmer temperatures. But when Bridget’s family seeks refuge with Gabe during a fierce thunderstorm, he feels a tug of responsibility for them—especially the girl with the dark green eyes.

Just as Bridget is finally settling into friendship, a new life, and maybe even love, a devastating forest fire ravages the county, destroying both land and the Behrs' dreams. Now Bridget and her family must decide: will they leave behind the ashes and start anew in another Amish community? Or will they dare to fight for the future they’d hoped for in Mackinac County?

Editorial Reviews

Firestorm is Laura Hilton’s best accomplishment to date! I became so deeply involved with Gabe’s life that I found myself in tears several times. Penned with such raw and primal depth and sensitivity, I melted emotionally. My heart ached as one tragedy transcended to another. Amish fiction at its very best!
—Nancee Marchinowski

Firestorm is a great story about faith and trust! It was interesting to read about the Amish in a little-known settlement area. As always, Laura Hilton does a wonderful job bringing her characters to life. I was easily swept away in Gabe and Bridget’s story and couldn’t put the book down! I strongly recommend Firestorm to anyone who loves Amish or inspirational fiction.
—Cecilia Lynn
Goodreads reviewer

If you haven't read the Amish genre because you think you can’t relate to them, I’m sorry to tell you that you are wrong. The Amish are just like us—human beings who go through life trials that include temptation, birth, loss, death, grief, marriage, teasing, financial struggle, and health issues, as well as natural disasters like floods, fires, and storms, and so much more. Laura V. Hilton writes an action-packed book that keeps you on the edge of your seat! The characters come alive in scenes that seem to place you right there in the moment. Emotions, thoughts and dialogue all pull the reader in with each turn of the page. I know I wanted more of Gabe and Bridget’s story. I can't wait for book two in the Amish of Mackinac County series.
—Tina Watson
Amish book reviewer

Another captivating and emotional read by Laura V. Hilton with Firestorm. I always look forward to reading a Laura Hilton book and this one didn’t disappoint. Firestorm is the first in the series set in Mackinac County, Michigan. This action-packed story is filled with strong characters, vividly descriptive scenes, and dialogue that kept this reader from putting it down. Readers will appreciate the depth, wisdom, and God’s unfailing love and greatness, even during the devastating times that Laura interlaces into her plot—along with Amish proverbs and biblical Scriptures.

Goodreads reviewer

Laura V. Hilton tackles another Amish fireman’s story. Action gets as hot romantically as the local fires and rescues this man races daringly toward. It’s an Amish romantic/suspense novel that feeds the flames of burning emotions.

I love how Laura Hilton shares about the research that goes into her books, because she makes the settings seem more authentic, which, in turn, helps bring the characters to life. This story took its sweet time drawing me in, like a good family friend. I found that I could relate to the characters when it seemed they just couldn’t catch a break, which seemed to mirror my week. Sure they are just characters in a book, but they could be real people working toward a goal as they overcome roadblocks and detours along the way. Fathers providing and doing what they feel is best for their families, but then realizing something is missing. Young adults thinking they have it all figured out, but then discovering that they missed a step. I am jealous that they get to figure out these issues and resolve them, but then I also hope we get to visit them again to see how they incorporate these lessons into their next big roadblocks.
