~Isaiah 43:2~ “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.”
My Thoughts: I think the secret started this fire!! When Abigail was sent off to relatives she didn’t even know she had.. I felt so bad for her. She only knew that because she had been caught in one kiss, she was banished from her home and it seemed like trouble just seemed to follow her. As she tried to make a new friend she found herself trying to explain how she was involved in a barn fire to the Amish firefighter that caught her running from the barn! This story revolves around a long ago secret that so many have tried to hide and is now coming out and really turning Abigail’s world even more upside down. I enjoyed how the author had a little bit English and a lot Amish to give us an idea of how each world has a way of having the same problems and secrets that can affect generations to come. If you enjoy reading Amish fiction, I think you will like The Amish Firefighter!
About the Book: A Beautiful Young Woman Banished from Home.. Abigail Stutzman thought it was bad enough being dropped at the nearest bus station and sent to live several states away with some relatives she’d never even heard of, much less met. But now, just a week after her arrival in Jamesport, Missouri, she finds herself at the scene of a barn fire. An intentional barn fire. And all fingers are pointed at her. She’s desperate to prove her innocence and protect her reputation, but nobody’s making that easy to do. And God certainly doesn’t seem willing to help.
A Brave Firefighter with an Agenda of His Own.. Sam Miller is in the process of turning over a new leaf. Determined to atone for the follies of his past, he is a volunteer firefighter, an EMT, and a doctor-in-training. With suspicious barn fires escalating, and the Miller family being among the victims, no one is more determined to see the perpetrators brought to justice than Sam.
A Kindled Flame Neither One Could Have Anticipated.. When their paths first cross at the site of a barn burning, the emotional intensity rivals the warmth of the flames. Soon, they must decide whether this fire is one they should feed or fight. And they’ll discover that the truth can prove more dangerous than a blazing inferno.
