Starting in February 2021, I have a brand new miniseries kicking off—The Infamous Amish!
These Amish stories are about the Amish bad boys.
The miniseries starts with the story of Isaiah Yoder, the son of an Amish criminal. Abe Yoder’s fraud has rocked the community, and no one knows who they can trust anymore. Now that Abe is in prison doing his time, the community has to move on, and so does Abe’s son, Isaiah.
But how do you move on when no one will trust you?
How do you find your place again when your name has been ruined?
You do what you have to…
In this poignant new series, Patricia Johns introduces an Amish family striving to reclaim the promise of love, marriage, and community after a shocking change in circumstance. Her sensitive storytelling and realistically flawed, yet endearing characters bring depth and heart to this tender story about faith and second chances, as a young man and woman.
The Amish residents of Bountiful, Pennsylvania, are stunned when preacher Abe Yoder is imprisoned for fraud. For Abe’s son, Isaiah, the news cuts doubly deep. His daet’s misdeeds have cost Isaiah his family’s land and their good name. To support his sisters, he takes a job in the Glick family’s book-binding shop, though it means working alongside a woman who has every reason to resent him. Yet, his attraction to Bethany Glick’s beauty and warmth is undimmed…
Isaiah’s daet’s actions helped drive Bethany’s fiancé to the Englischer world, and cost her own father his savings. Their shop is in need of Isaiah’s brawn and skill, but if she’s to start over after heartbreak, she needs a man she can trust. Not a Yoder. But Isaiah isn’t giving up so easily. And when Bethany faces a dilemma, there may be a way for each to find not just redemption, but a joyful new love…
