The Newcomer

The Newcomer (Amish Beginnings #2)The Newcomer by Suzanne Woods Fisher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Newcomer picks up right where Anna’s Crossing left off. I highly recommend you read these books in the order they were written.

We meet again with Anna Konig, Bairn Bauer, his younger brother Felix, and the rest of the exiled church from Ixheim, Germany. They landed in Pennsylvania at the end of Anna’s Crossing. Now they are working to make a place for themselves in the New World. The way is rife with dangers, from both within and without their small community.

I enjoyed the story and the theme of returning home, even though it’s not a physical home. Home can be much more. Home with God in your life, of course, is the best home of all. There is also a strong thread of forgiveness and trust throughout this story. Sometimes trust is a good thing, and sometimes it’s misplaced. The story bears that out. All-in-all, well worth reading.
