If you are a fan of the Amish fiction by Beverly Lewis and others, you are going to love Bygones, which takes place in a Mennonite community. Twenty-three years ago, Marie Koeppler left her Mennonite family and faith in Sommerfield, Kansas. Marie met a truck driver at her job and ran off to Cheyenne, Wyoming, later marrying Jep Quinn and giving birth to their daughter, Beth.
Upon leaving, she really hurt her family, especially her father and ex-beau Henry Braun, who never stopped loving her. Events lead up to Marie eventually coming back to Sommerfield and her relationship with God and her family.
I am looking forward to reading the second book in the Sommerfield Trilogy, Beginnings, coming in October.
