An Amish Journey-Set Free-Volume 2-The Hat on the Water Review

An Amish Journey-Set Free-Volume 2-The Hat on the Water
By George Michael Loughmueller

About the book:

His last chance was their only hope.
In this new periodical short story series from Trestle Press, a man on the brink of self-destruction is given the opportunity to start over.
Allan and his family are faced with many new changes on their first day. This creates instant friction with the children. Allan considers the offer to take his old teacher’s place at the schoolhouse. His decision leads to an unexpected event.

My Review:

Allan moves his family into a new life.  On the day of their arrival, their prized possessions are taken away and put into storage.  They are left with the bare minimum.  His teenage kids quickly discover what life is like in the Amish community.  They rebel and refuse to participate.  They don’t want anything to do with the change.  They can’t see past how unfair their new living situation is.

Allan can only stay strong.  He wants to save his family and his marriage.  His family are more like strangers.  They don’t spend any time together.

Allan is chosen to be the new teacher at the schoolhouse and he is determined to be accepted by the Amish community, his family, and himself.  Allan was in search of a completely change of his life and family.

I found this book to be a heart-warming story of family, bonding, understanding, and acceptance.  Not only did Allan learn more about himself, but his entire family learned how to adapt.
