Lancaster Amish Secrets (The Lancaster Amish Juggler: An Amish of Lancaster County Saga series) by Rebecca Price, is not your typical Amish story.
The Schroeder’s endure a backbreaking trip to Lancaster. However, none more than Hannah and Abram who have been relegated to the worst seats during their journey, unlike their “precious” sister, Rebecca who gets to sit in front.
Things do not get any better when they reach their new home.
Abram. . .looks around and sighs. “We’ll be doin’ chores around this place for the rest of our lives.”
. . . “Don’t worry, Abram. Maybe we won’t live that long.”
He chuckles and I do too. It feels good. We’re the only ones in the family who ever laugh, it often occurs to me, even though we’re the ones who get stuck with the hard work. Princess Rebecca never lifts a finger, gets first choice of everything . . . yet she never seems to laugh or even smile.
Abram and Hannah are constantly drawing on each other for comfort and help, as they become the “slaves” and their sister Rebecca the “princess”.
As they settle into their new life in Lancaster, Abram hones his skills as a juggler and Hannah becomes the best pie maker around. However, things are not as they seem and events bring long-held secrets to the forefront.
In light of new, heartbreaking information, Hannah sets out to find the truth and in the process tears her family apart.
Lancaster Amish Secrets is an impressive story with an unexpected and striking ending.
