Overview

Rose Lantz is overjoyed with her life. Her Amish family has a lovely farm in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, she has a good friend in Lydia Beiler who loves to quit with her, her faith in God is strong and her Amish community warm and supportive, and she is engaged to be married to a handsome young man. But she came to the American Colonies when she was 10 and can still remember the persecution the Amish people fled in Germany. So when Lydia is accused of witchcraft by those outside the Amish community she is quick to help her friend's lawyer and speak up on behalf of Lydia during the trial. But her passionate defence of Lydia draws attention to her and soon it is Rose who is facing charges of being a witch. The charges sound so convincing that friends and family turn away from her. Even her fiancé breaks off his engagement. Soon Rose is on her own to face her accusers with no one to help but God. And one brave young man she had never paid any attention to before.

    This is Pura Enjoyment! This is definitely a Murray Pura book!

    This is Pura Enjoyment!

    This is definitely a Murray Pura book! The writing is superb--just like I have become to expect from this author. The characters of Rose and Lydia are so real and feminine, that it put a smile on my face - excellent job, Murray!
    I thoroughly enjoyed this first installment of ebooks of The Rose of Lancaster County. I'm eagerly awaiting the next!

    Excellent writing, but a short one

    Murray Pura's writing is excellent, with wonderful character description and a detailed plot; however, I had to reread this short installment to clarify the events. Taking that into consideration, and the fact that something is definitely lost in reading these installment books, I gave the book 4 stars. I think that this book in its whole will be excellent, and reading it in its entirety would be my preference.
