A Christian series about a fictitious Swiss Amish community in southern rural Missouri. The Swiss Amish differ from the Pennsylvania Dutch in many ways, including their language, use of open buggies, and burial customs. While the two groups may freely associate, they typically do not intermarry, possibly due to the language barrier.
While these stories all stand alone, they do contain spoilers and should be read in order. Book 4 wraps up any loose ends from books 1-3, making a complete set. This series is also available as a collection in Kindle and paperback.
From the time they were youngsters in a one-room Amish schoolhouse, Emma and Jeb have competed in everything from foot races to fishing contests. But now that they’re grown and competing leads to pride, the worst sin of all, Emma must choose to put away childish squabbles and concentrate on her baptismal classes, so she can join church and marry Luke, her long time beau.
When Jeb starts a rumor about her, the whole community turns on Emma, and those childhood feelings come back with a vengeance. But is it hatred she feels for Jeb or something else?
