Litfuse Review- Christian's Hope by Ervin R. Stutzman

Good FRIDAY evening everyone! Yes, it is my most favorite day of the week. Perfect for reading a good Amish book like Christian's Hope!


When Christian Hochstetler returns to the Amish after seven years in captivity, he finds that many things have shifted. Captured as a child during the French and Indian War, Christian has spent much of his life among Native Americans, who cared for him and taught him their ways. Now that Christian is home, his father wants him to settle back into their predictable Amish life of farming, and Christian's budding friendship with Orpha Rupp beckons him to stay as well.

Yet Christian feels restless, and he misses his adoptive Native American family--who raised him as their own son. When faced with a life-altering decision, will Christian choose the Amish identity that his father desires for him? Or will he depart from his family and faith community yet again?

"Christian's Hope" tells the story of the younger brother of Joseph and son of Jacob, whom readers have come to love in the first two books in the Return to Northkill series. Based on actual events and written by a descendant of the Hochstetler family, "Christian's Hope" brings the sweeping epic of the Return to Northkill series to a soul-stirring end.
                       *My Thoughts*
This story was fascinating to me...not at all what I expected on page 1. 
I expected your typical Amish story, but this was so much more. Filled with historical facts regarding Christian's life with the indians during the French/Indian War, this was deeper, but on a very engaging level.
The pov is surprisingly told from the male protagonist, Christian, and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. I feel that even the male reader would enjoy this wonderful, if unexpected Amish tale.

    *My Rating*

  I give Christian's Hope by Ervin R. Stutzman...



                             4 stars!! 


I received this book free of charge from the author.

Happy Reading,
