This book was different than any other book I have read. I am not sure what exactly makes it different. New scenery? You rarely read Amish books set in Texas. Perhaps it is the harrassement towards the Amish. I am not sure, but it is different. And while it was different, that doesn't translate to bad, it is just different. Over all an enjoyable story. With characters that you can relate to, feeling their hurts, and their joys. 4 stars from this reviewer.

About the Book
Never doubt in the darkness what God has shown you in the light.
Elsie Yoder can’t forgive her sister, Katie, for leaving the community. Unable to let go of her sadness, she withdraws from her friends and family, nursing her feelings of betrayal.
Gideon Lapp has held a special place in his heart for Elsie and longs to help her get through her troubles. Together they find comfort in their study of the Martyr’s Mirror, a centuries-old book that describes their ancestors’ sacrifices for their faith through years of persecution.
