Product Description

Although promised to the widowed neighbor Zeb, Emma is considering leaving her Amish community to watch over her younger brother Mark when he leaves for Philadelphia to explore the outside world during his Rumspringa.

There, she reconnects with her former beau Caleb, who protects the Amish teens, introducing them to his life evangelizing and helping the homeless. Unbeknownst to Emma, Caleb is glad for the opportunity to spend time with her and hopes to win her back.

Struck by the power of evangelism and outreach, Emma begins to feel a draw to Caleb's way of life. When she doesn't return home when she promised, Zeb goes to the city to find her, forcing Emma to choose in which of their two worlds she really belongs.

    Beth Shriver has written a very unique book with Rumspringas Hope

    Typically when you read a book about the Amish, Rumspringa is part of it but not the focus.

    Even with stories where the main conflict hinges on that mysterious time in an Amish teens life, we only get a glimpse of what goes on during that oh so secret period.



    And that is exactly why we Englisch are so fascinated by it, why we have reality TV shows that imitate it, why we read about it in almost every Amish book on the market because it is intriguing to us and yes because it is such a mystery.

    And that is only part of the reason this book will be a hit!

    Beth Shriver has focused almost entirely on what goes on during the Amish rumspringa at least as far as her own characters go.

    It is like getting a glimpse at a forbidden world and I know I will not be the only one to keep reading out of sheer curiosity!

    Its also exciting to see that this is book 1 of the new series! Readers love series!

    Admit it you know you do!

    What fun is it to get attached to characters when you only to get to connect with them in one book? Its not and that is why most authors of Amish fiction are smart to make their books into series because they know their readers LOVE THEM!

    I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

    Beth Shriver has penned a uniquely different page-turner that depicts the restlessness and experiences of Amish teens during rumspringa; a time when they are allowed to leave the community and explore the world.

    Emma's former beau, Caleb, has left his community in Pennsylvania to help protect the Amish as they arrive in the big city, and also to evangelize and help the homeless. When Caleb returns for a visit, he is hopeful for the opportunity to win Emma back, but alas, she is promised to her neighbor, Zeb. Caleb's fervor for evangelism strikes a chord in Emma and she chooses to accompany her restless, unruly brother, Mark, to the city...much to the displeasure of her fianc, Zeb. Caleb promises to protect her, but nothing has prepared Emma for the outside world and the dangers of the big city. Has she made the right decision, and will Zeb be able to convince her to come back home? Will Mark realize the grass is not always greener on the other side?

    I finished this book in two short evenings as it was impossible to put down! I have never read an Amish book where rumspringa is depicted with such depth and realism---rather than an idealized or romantic view of it. Ms. Shriver's writing style and ability to tell a unique story is impeccable. Truly a wonderfully exciting tale of God's redemption, healing, and purpose in life -- be sure to put Rumspringa's Hope on your wishlist today!

    Rumspringa's Hope is just that, going into the English world, but not joining them, but trying to bring God's Word and Love to them. I felt that Emma's brother Jack was out of control, and not living his Amish faith, what to do? Emma finds out her brother is going to go on his rumspringa and going to Philadelphia, PA, and decides she will go and keep an eye on him, and maybe share some faith with people.

    While the Amish religion does not per say proselytize, Emma seems to want to do what her friend Caleb has been doing. Before she leaves for the city it appears that she has established an understanding with Zeb, and her parents seem to have blessed a union between them.

    Come along with this group of young Amish people, both male and female, and see what happens to them and observe their experiences in the city. There are some really big surprises, and you will wonder if life will ever be the same for any of them. Coming from rather sheltered lives to the harsh reality of every day live in tough areas, had to be a real reality check for them. Can they ever come back to their peaceful existence, or will they be caught up in the modern world forever? There is also the chance they will enter into the world of drugs and danger, and can they get out of there?

    I really was engrossed in this story, and was really surprised how some things turned out, that you will never see coming. If you enjoy Amish stories, this one is a great read, and a real page-turner. Enjoy!

    I received this book through Booketeria, and was not required to give a positive review.
