About the Book

1847: The members of the Amish church in the Kishacoquillas Valley of central Pennsylvania don’t know what to make of the Methodist tent revival going on down the road. From the lively singing and impassioned preaching to the altar calls and prayers of salvation, it’s nothing like their solemn ways of worship and tradition. But as some Amish become curious about what’s going on in the tent, them find themselves wondering: What is a genuine spiritual experience?

The question turns personal when Susanna’s beloved cousin Noah begins preaching while under trances and crowds gather daily to watch. Susanna and her intended, Adam, must grapple with whether love is possible if they come to different conclusions.

When the divided community faces a life-or-death situation, they must respond to a crisis that challenges them to look past their differences. But can strong-held opinions be softened by the truths that shape their lives?
