The fourth book in the Jonas Series invites readers to see the world through the eyes of Jonas Bontrager's 16-year-old daughter, Becca, as she asks the same questions her father did, but in her own fresh and surprising ways.

After three books with a male protagonist, it was fun to write one from a teenage girl's perspective. It was also neat to see how Jonas related to her as a father, and as someone who had "been there, done that." Parenting among the Amish brings with it some added trauma if their children should decide not to stay within the faith--an issue Jonas and Becca face head on. My favorite part of the book is when Jonas says to his teenage daughter, "I'm beginning to realize the only thing I can do is hope and pray that you will find the right way." Becca answers, "And when you pray, will you be telling God what's the right way?"From the Back Cover:
I've given buggy rides in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania for seven years, and I can tell you I couldn't put Becca down. It's descriptive, accurate, and compelling--a great book! --Jessica Kauffman, Bird-in-Hand, PA
My wife and I both read Becca and were totally captured by the story line and writing style. I am a tour guide in Lancaster County and I highly recommend the Jonas Series to people who want to read some very insightful books about the Amish. ---Mike Adams, Lititz, PA
