A Sequel to If You Leave This Farm.
Let’s face it, we all have struggles in our families. Some struggles are easier than others; some struggles with family members are considered dysfunctional. In No Longer a Child of Promise (based on a true story), Amanda leaves her Mennonite family farm after living and working there for 29 years. Leaving the farm finally allowed Amanda to make decisions for herself and to start a new life. But that soon new found freedom is skewed by unresolved issues back on the farm. As much as Amanda tries to put her family and the farm behind her, she is drawn back in by her family loyalty and by doing the Godly right thing to do.
No Longer a Child of Promise is a book full of family struggle that is very bitter. I personally tried putting myself in Amanda’s position and wonder if I would have been as faithful and loyal as she was. Will Amanda make the right decisions? Will Amanda’s family give her the ultimate rejection – disinheritance by her parents? Get your copy today to find out!
No Longer a Child of Promise can be purchased at Amazon or Barnes & Noble or anywhere books are sold.
