The Outcast

From the publisher: Raised in an Old Order Mennonite community, Rachel Stoltzfus is a strong-willed single woman, content living apart from mainstream society until whispers stir the moment her belly swells with new life. Refusing to repent and name the partner in her sin, Rachel feels the wrath of the religious sect as she is shunned by those she loves most. She is eventually coerced into leaving by her brother-in-law, the bishop. 

But secrets run deep in this cloistered community, and the bishop is hiding some of his own, threatening his conscience and his very soul. When the life of Rachel’s baby is at stake, however, choices must be made that will bring the darkness to light, forever changing the lives of those who call Copper Creek home. 

I don't normally review Amish or Mennonite books, as I come from a plain background.... But this was a great book, written by someone who understands the plain life.

This was a book that was hard to put down, it was easy to read, and I believe that the subject is one that everyone would enjoy.  If you like to read about the plain living and the struggles that they have, this is a good book to read.  It was intense, it was full of secrets, and a good ending!

I received this book free from the publisher . I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
