Like The Scarlet Letter's Hester Prynne, The Outcast's Rachel Stolzfus must confront shunning and scorn for her violation of ordinances against premarital sex. Her pregnancy offends the community, but in the view of many, what is even worse is her stubborn refusal to identify the father of her child. Jolina Petersheim's novel of an Old Order Mennonite woman captures the unfolding story of impulses, ethics, and recovery. Editor's recommendation.
