The Outcast by Jolina Petersheim will keep you reading into the wee hours of the night. Meet Rachel Stoltzfus who was raised in the Old Order Mennonite community who shuns her once her secret of a pregnancy out of wedlock spreads. Her biggest accusers , one being the bishop confronts his own secrets of sin will it change his heart? Will he find forgiveness and embrace Rachel and her child? This book will bring out raw emotions in you as you feel the abandonment that Rachel encounters. She refuses to name the father to protect him. Would you do the same. The book is somewhat lengthy but with the cooler months ahead of us, this would make for the perfect read. I had the great pleasure of reviewing for the Tyndale Network.
