Product Description

Set during the French and Indian War, Joseph's Dilemma explores the interaction between the Amish settlers in Pennsylvania and the Delaware Indians. Based on actual events, the novel traces the heart-wrenching drama of a young man caught between his Amish past, his love for a woman and an unknown future.

Joseph Hochstetler, an Amish teen is taken into captivity by Native Americans during the brutal French and Indian War. While initially he resists the attempts of the Indians to help him adapt to their way of life, Joseph slowly finds himself changing.

A story of forbidden love, Joseph finds himself caught between a blossoming romance with a young Indian woman, and the binds that time to his Amish heritage. His eyes now opened to the wrongs committed by the white settlers, Joseph vows never to return to the Amish community.

However, the encroaching British army soon forces the Indians to give up their captives under threat of death.

    Joseph is one of Jacobs sons taken in captivity when the Indians attacked the Hochstetler family farm during the French and Indian War. Based on true events and real people this second book focuses on how Joseph deals with his captivity while still with his father and then when he is separated from him. Joseph is wrestling with his hurt and anger at his father for his not allowing either Joseph or Christian to use weapons to defend their home and lives. As Joseph is tied up and led away from all he knows, he is a young man filled with sorrow, anger, hate towards his enemies and facing the unknown.

    When Joseph is adopted by a Delaware widow to replace her lost son, at first Joseph is deciding to not become adapted to their lifestyle or beliefs. Joseph fights with all that is in him from not eating the food offered him to having to be forced to have his Amish clothes torn away and then totally different attire placed on his person.

    The only spot of light is the Delaware widows little daughter that Joseph comes to love and play with for the many years he lives with the family. In time, Joseph does adapt to the new living situation though their beliefs are confusing and often polar to what he was raised to believe. Joseph gets opportunities to share what he was taught by his father, and eventually has to decide whether to hold on to the Amish way or adopt another set of beliefs.

    I loved how Josephs strengths came through the story like his compassion for the little girl and even as he grows older and considers marrying a young woman in the tribe. The other interesting point in the story is how Joseph comes to understand why his father takes the stand he does and works right alongside others in the tribe, attempting to understand the people. Again, like the first book in the series, Jacobs Choice, this one also ends on a cliffhanger so I am glad to have the final installment in the series to read titled, Christians Hope.

    I hope you take time to read all three books as they are fiction, but there are historical facts included in the tale along with the history of a real family who lived through the French and Indian War.
