Christian's Hope by Ervin R. Stutzman Book Review



Christian’s Hope (Herald Press, October 2016)
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 review:

This is Book Three in the Return to Northkill series by Ervin R. Stutzmann. What happens to a young boy when he is captured by Native Americans during the French and Indian War. Will he ever again be able to go back to living as an Amish person? In seven years he has really missed a lot. His father wants it to be like it was before. Even though he was captured he was treated well by his other family and he feels their absence in his life. Which way will Christian pick for his future? Will he be able to remain Amish?  I liked this story and I liked the characters. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given this book by Litfuse Publicity Group and all opinions are mine.
