Lancaster Burning Trilogy
The Amish community of Lancaster is being terrorized by barn fires. David and Malinda Beiler's barn was the first to go. When a second Amish barn burns for suspicious reasons, the Amish grow more restless. Can Sarah, David and Malinda's daughter, end the terror that is pulling apart their community, even as her own heart is pulled between two young men?
Fire in the Night, Book 1: Sarah observes her parents agony after their barn burns to the ground, apparently by an arsonist. Not only is she afraid, and wishing she could protect her parents, she's entranced by the flirtatious Matthew Stoltzfus. He's dating her friend Rose, but when he tenderly bandages Sarah's hand after she burned it at the barn raising, she wonders whom he's really interested in.
Davey's Daughter, Book 2: Sarah thinks Ashley, whom she's met at the local farmers market, knows more about the fires than she will admit. But Sarah can't convince her to share her secrets. Should the Amish finally resort to police protection? Matthew is asking if the Amish church is the right fit for him. Will Sarah follow him if he decides to leave the community? Sarah's mother urges her to pay more attention to handsome newcomer Lee, the hardworking Amish man who helps anyone in the community in need. How will Sarah respond to all of the forces that are pulling her in different directions?
The Witnesses, Book 3: When Sarah spots flames late one night in the widow Lydia's barn, she refuses to let the fire win. She gets the horses out just in time, but not before a beam explodes overhead, knocking her to the ground as the barn rages in flames all around her. Gone were her lovely good looks, her life as a teacher, and perhaps the attention of the two young men who had been so drawn to her.
