Ava finds herself in the Wal-Mart parking lot with both Zeke and Michael. Making a split-second decision she leaves and goes to the Bontrager’s where she has a meltdown and then learns the truth about Rachael, her aunt. At the same time, Zeke finds himself on a long drive where he does some major soul-searching. Then Isaac receives word that Helen’s father, one of the church elders, wants to have an early morning talk with him before the two-hour church service begins.
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.
