Firestorm (The Amish of Mackinac County #1) by Laura V. Hilton
When Bridget Behr and her family migrate from a bustling Amish community in Ohio to the remote and isolated Upper Peninsula of Michigan, they’re met with an ugly surprise: the house they had bought sight unseen is an uninhabitable wreck. While her father and brother try to find work in the area, the family is forced to live in tents until the house and barn are rebuilt. Bridget can’t shake the guilt that it was her fault her family moved—and is too afraid to trust anyone, especially the flirtatious, overly-friendly Amish man who lives next door.
Gabriel Lapp has made Michigan his home out of necessity, but can’t wait to move back to Florida with its sunshine and warmer temperatures. But when Bridget’s family seeks refuge with Gabe during a fierce thunderstorm, he can’t help but feel a tug of responsibility for them—especially the girl with the dark green eyes.
Just as Bridget is finally settling into friendship, a new life, and maybe even love, a devastating forest fire ravages the county, destroying both land and the Behr's dreams. Now Bridget and her family must decide: will they leave behind the ashes and start anew in another Amish community? Or will they dare to fight for the future they’d hoped for in Mackinac County?
About The Author
An exciting new series from gifted author Laura V. Hilton, one you don’t want to miss.
I loved this Christian story of Amish life in Michigan, what a change from Ohio, and we experience it first hand through the eyes of the author and her main characters of Bridget Behr and Gabriel Lapp.
A love story, but so much more is included here, a new beginning for a family fleeing a stalker, and wait until you see the house they have purchased sight unseen. Oh my! Then we experience this remote area, with unusual activities for the Amish, Polar Bear Plunge, really?
Yes, we face a lot of adversary conditions, and yet, we see faith unbroken, and you might want to keep the tissue handy as you read this.
This story is so action packed, and keeps you on your toes, you will never see what is coming next, and you don’t want to.
