Series: Ohio Amish Mystery #1
When an Amish boy is kidnapped, a bishop, fearful for the safety of his followers, plunges three outsiders into the traditionally closed society of the `Plain Ones'. In the Old Order Amish communities of Ohio's Holmes County, it is rare for one of the self-styled `plain' people to seek aid from an outsider, one of `the English.' But Bishop Eli Miller needs help and finds it in a local academic, Michael Brandon. Murder, suspicion and seclusion abound in the first novel in a brand new crime series set in Amish country.
