Yesterday I introduced you to debut novelist Jolina Petersheim who just released The Outcast. Here’s a peek at the story:
Rachel Stoltzfus never imagined she’d be the talk of her Old Order Mennonite community until whispers stir the moment her belly swells with new life. Unmarried and refusing to repent by naming the partner in her sin, Rachel feels the wrath of the religious sect as she is shunned by those she loves most and eventually forced to leave – driven out by her twin sister’s husband, the bishop.
But secrets run deep in this cloistered community, and the bishop is hiding some of his own, threatening his conscience and his very soul. When the life of Rachel’s baby is at stake, choices must be made that will bring the darkness to light, forever changing the lives of those who call Copper Creek home.
Thanks to Jolina and our friends at Tyndale House Publishers, we have a great giveaway today!
We’ll have three winners… Our grand prize winner will receive a copy of the novel along with this beautiful loom crafted rug from a Mennonite community in Scottsville, KY that Jolina picked up. Everyone together now… Ohhh… Ahhh…
