    I am very interested in this story. It’s very hard to find accurate information about the earliest Amish settlers in Berks and Lancaster Counties. Thank you for offering the giveaway — I’d love to be chosen.

    I am a history buff and I tend to read everything I find about the Amish. I am glad to have found thisweb site, and have spent the last two days reading it. I had never heard the story of the “Hochtetler Massacre. I would love to read this story.

    Thank you.

    There are a lot of books written about the Hochstetler massacre, also if you google it you can find this story on the internet.

      Thank you Dr. Stutzman and Marcus Yoder. I have ordered the Jacob’s Choice novel, and I will check out your suggestions to learn more about the story. My first “boyfriend” was a Hostutler. He wasn’t Amish, but that may have been because there were no Amish anywhere near our homes in West Virginia. My Scots-Irish nosieness ask him where his ancestors came from, and what did the name Hostutler mean, and he told me it meant they were good with horses. I will follow your lead about the web pages and learn all about the Hochestetlers and where they came from.

      Thank you,

      Nancy

    Another book for my list of “to-read” in the future. I obviously saw this posting too late to enter the contest, but I appreciate the interview and learning more about the massacre and early Amish/Mennonite travails in this country.

    Thank you!

    Eric did you get my address? I emailed to you.
    Thanks again.

  • I got to read this book this past week finally.. fantastic book and Im so glad to read it. I hated to have to put it down when it was time to sleep.. it was great to keep you wanting more too.. Looking forward to the next!!
    Thanks for sharing great Amish books, Eric.. I’d probably never hear of them if it weren’t for your page.. When I look up Amish novels at my library.. all I get are romances.. I enjoy them too, but not exclusively. :)
    Have a great day!
