Hester's Hunt for Home Trilogy, by Linda Byler

Hester on the Run #1

Young Amish couple Hans and Kat Zug find a Lenape Native American infant wrapped in deerskin left by a spring. They name her Hester and raise her Amish.  Once grown she realizes she belongs to two traditions.  When it divides her family, she decides to leave the only home she has known with her Amish memories and an ancient book of Native remedies. 

Which Way Home #2

Now living out on her own, Hester’s natural instincts for navigating the forests in colonial Pennsylvania along with the book of medicines and remedies given to her by an aged Native American woman allow her to survive until she gets sick from drinking river water. She was left for dead and eventually taken in by Emma Ferree a widow who offers her home to fugitives. Hester marries an Amish man and finds he only loves her for her beauty, eventually causing the marriage to fail.  Running Bear is a Native American brave who has been watching her for years.  He asks for her hand in marriage and gives her a wintertime to decide.  She must decide where is her heart is most at home, with the Amish or with the Native Americans? Can she ever be in a happy marriage? Hester begins to wish that her Amish mother, Kate, had never rescued her.  

Hester Takes Charge #3

Hester is a Native American who was rescued as an infant by Hans and Kate Zug, an Amish couple. She helps run an farmers market and nurses sick children of impoverished parents with tinctures, teas and rubs. Noah is the first born child of the parents who raised her.   They are victims of a deep attraction Hans had for Hester.  Noah left his family and the Amish to join the War.  Hester is the widow of William King, an Amish man who was determined to possess his wife and dictate her life. Noah invites Hester to join him on a visit to their childhood home.  Can they forgive Hans for his misplaced love for Hester & his neglect of Noah?  Could Hester & Noah risk marriage?

Publisher's Description

In colonial America, a Native American orphan raised among the Amish explores her identity, torn between two cultures and unsure of where she belongs. When she's forced to leave everything behind and forge her own path, where—and with whom—will Hester choose to make her new home?

Hester on the Run, Book 1: One April morning, an Amish couple finds a Native American infant, wrapped in deerskin and placed next to the spring where they gather water. Kate and Hans adopt the child and name her Hester, despite the criticism of certain community members. Hester glows as she grows, an unmistakable beauty both inside and out, but begins to realize she doesn't quite fit in. An encounter with a Lenape medicine woman gives her a glimpse of her undiscovered heritage. When her own father becomes a threat, Hester is forced to flee from the Amish community, the only home she has ever really known.

Which Way Home?, Book 2: Twice rescued—first by matronly Native women who find her unconscious in the woods and then by a boy in downtown Lancaster where she'd been left for dead by the dreaded Paxton boys—Hester finds herself wondering if she will ever find a safe haven. When an Amish man from her past reappears, it seems like destiny, but William King is more in love with the way she looks than with her heart and mind. When a Native American man makes a proposal to Hester, she is perplexed more than ever. Where will her heart lead her?

Hester Takes Charge, Book 3: Now widowed and living in downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Hester is startled by the unexpected appearance of Noah, the firstborn son of her adoptive parents. Their father's misplaced love for Hester and utter neglect of Noah drove each of them away from their Amish family. When Noah suggests they return to their childhood home to see their ill father, Hester can no longer ignore her buried anger and bitterness. Can they possibly forgive Hans? Can Hester trust herself—and Noah—enough to marry again?
