Ava Troyer never really considered the possibility of life outside of the warm, protective Amish community Even during her state mandated schooling through the eighth grade, she would dreamily fantasize about whether any of the other Amish boys in the history class right after lunch was going to be the father of her children, or if she would meet the man of her dreams froAva Troyer never really considered the possibility of life outside of the warm, protective Amish community Even during her state mandated schooling through the eighth grade, she would dreamily fantasize about whether any of the other Amish boys in the history class right after lunch was going to be the father of her children, or if she would meet the man of her dreams from another state, an exciting possibility But the wreck that killed her father and almost killed Ava, that early Sunday morning, at the hands of an all night reveler, changed everything The young man in military fatigues that pulled her to safety spoke Pennsylvania Dutch to her, but he wasn t Amish Or was he And how could she be so powerfully attracted to a young man about to go overseas to war, something she fiercely believed was wrong Roger Rheinheimer spent the first eighteen years of his life in northern Indiana His father was the only doctor for a small town of 1200, and had a hitching rail on a side street by his office for the Amish patients His father bought an eighty acre farm, and Roger and his older brother worked it, raising cattle and growing crops While he was still in high school, Roger learned woodworking skills from Elmer Schlabach, his Amish mentor They built houses in the old fashioned tradition, from hand mixing the concrete for the foundations to hand nailing the shingles The only phase they did not do was the electrical To this day, Roger enjoys using his wood crafting skills, making acoustic guitars and furniture Roger earned an undergraduate degree in Behavioral Psychology from a small private college in the Shenandoah Valley, took a Creative Writing class, loved it, and published a short story called My Brother He was a regular contributing writer to the college newspaper Roger has two novels in print and ebook, Amish Snow and Yield Spread a novel Crystal Linn is a free lance writer and award winning poet who teaches a variety of creative writing classes Her third book, Poetry for Friends, is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2012 She lives in the greater Seattle area where she enjoys reading mysteries, writing poetry and sailing with friends and family.

Here’s a question you may be asking yourself: Do I (Giovanni) really groove on this stuff? The answer is simply I enjoy good writing, plain and simple. And if that means that I follow that credo to read a work about the “Plain People”, my friends the Amish, then that is where I will go. I also knew going into this it didn’t include anything on Big Daddy Abel, EZ, Hez, Jake “The Plummer”, or any of the other “Amish Outlaws”. Be forewarned. But I digress yet again, sorry.Melding tw [...]

The Stranger is a smart introduction to this ongoing short story series. The relationships of the characters are solidly defined over the backdrop of a tragic accident. The point of view is held mostly to Ava and we experience events almost dream like as she slips between stints consciousness. The authors make fine use of dialogue and the characters speak how an "outsider" would expect them to. The real crux is the mystery man that Ava claims pulled her from the wreck.

We meet Ava, a young Amish girl, in the hospital. She has just survived a tragic accident between buggy and car. A mystery is introduced at the same time. Who is the stranger that pulled her from the wreckage. The authors do a great job of showing us the relationship of Ava and her brothers. I look forward to seeing this story develop.

Very authentic feel and a real pleasure to read. This writing team hit the nail on the head with this. I am looking forward to devouring the rest of this series.

What's up with this book? Did I get just a sample or something? It was just one scene and that was it. Waste of time and money.

Cute little intro to the volumes

Good story, short.
