An epilogue, of sorts.
This short piece tells what became of Allan and the fateful events of that December night.
“His last chance was their only hope.” Allan Howarth came to escape a life of mental and emotional imprisonment. A plain life in Karsten Field set him free, but he also changed their Amish lives for the better.
A story of birth, death and renewal shows Allan how bright God’s future can be.
George Michael Loughmueller is a descendant of German heritage. Finding joy in being a husband and father, he is known by his friends as “Laughing George” because of his cheerful disposition and the pronunciation of his last name.
Born in the Midwest, George has spent time both in Omaha, Nebraska and Des Moines, Iowa. He works in retail, but has long had the dream of being an author. With the support of family and friends, George decided to write a story inspired by his grandfather.
“Set Free: An Amish Journey” is a work of fiction. However, some of the events are based on facts and stories told by George’s late father about the unusual life of his grandfather. In George’s mind, the fictional church district of Karsten Field is set in the small communities of eastern Iowa.
