New release De Miller:"The Amish Mysteries-Secrets-Volume 2-Beginnings"
As different as the Amish are from the outside world, so is the Palatin Commune from the rest of their Amish brethren. Enigmatic and strict, the leaders of the sect have guarded their privacy for generations. In Volume 2 - Secrets, The Amish Mysteries series, we are transported back in time about 15 years to see the beginnings of the personalities and incidents which will set up the biggest challenge to their Amish way of life in more than 200 years. Jake Crew, a 20-year-television-veteran by 1994, begins a clandestine assignment from the President of the United States which will forever change his life. At the same time, the leaders of the secretive Amish sect set in motion moves that go against their time-honored practice of little or no contact with the outsiders. In the next decade and a half people and events, both inside and far outside their commune’s fences, move into place, all leading to one catastrophic day which will rock the very foundations of their simple way of life.
