The Outcast was my first introduction to Old Order Mennonite culture. Jolina Petersheim’s riveting portrait of life behind this curious and oft times mysterious world captivated me from the first word and left me breathless for more. Do yourself a favor and place The Outcast at the top of your reading list.
I’ve just discovered rising star Jolina Petersheim,and I’m hooked! The Alliance was a mesmerizing peek at what might happen if everything we thought we believed was suddenly tested. I can’t wait for the next installment!
Jolina Petersheim’s debut novel, The Outcast, raises the bar for inspirational fiction. It is heartwarming and heartbreaking at once. A story of hypocrisy and redemption in a secretive community that will keep the reader turning the pages.
Quickly paced, beautifully written, flawlessly executed, I could not put this book down.
Englisch and Mennonite worlds collide in this poetically written story, layered with intrigue, mystery, and redemption. Readers are sure to find the gift of hope in the pages of The Midwife.
The Alliance is a gripping story that shows how cultural differences drop away in the face of life-altering circumstance and only the most deeply held truths survive. I raced to the end and wanted more. Can’t wait for the conclusion of this series!
“The work of a master storyteller.” 4.5 stars
Masterfully told, The Midwife is a riveting story with enough twists and turns in the plot to surprise any reader — all while exploring the real ethical, moral, and emotional issues surrounding surrogacy. I promise this story will make you think, pull at your heart strings, and keep you turning pages until the end.
Finally, an apocalyptic novel ablaze with hope. Just the kind of story I champion. A must-read.
