"The farm and Amish ways spring to life with full characters and carefully chosen details. . . . A story animal lovers will enjoy." — KIRKUS REVIEWS

On the Amish farm where he lives and works with his family, ten-year-old Simeon Zook hears and feels things other people miss — things like the quiet sounds of birds and animals, or even the subtle sense that something is not quite right. It is just that sort of unease that draws him out to the barn one night, the night he stumbles upon the glare of a stranger’s flashlight and a sudden crackling blaze. With insight into a child’s inner struggles and the nuances of Amish traditions, Cathryn Clinton tells a coming-of-age story of family, loyalty, and faith in the face of fear and prejudice — and the enduring strength of one boy’s dreams.

From the Publisher:

With compassion and insight into a child’s inner struggles and the nuances of Amish traditions, Cathryn Clinton tells a powerful coming-of-age story of family, loyalty, and faith in the face of fear and prejudice – and the enduring strength of one boy’s dreams.

From the Author:

Cathryn Clinton says, "Has fear kept you from figuring out the right thing to do, much less doing it? I’ve struggled with this, and like Simeon, I’ve found, to my surprise, that new truths can come through familiar voices. If we can still ourselves to listen to our hearts and our communities, we will find the way to love."
