Mattie Schrock is no stranger to uprooting her life. Even as her father relocated her family from one Amish community to the next, she always managed to find a footing in their new homes. Now as the Schrock family plans to move west from Somerset County to a fledgling Amish settlement in Indiana, she looks forward to connecting with old friends who will be joining them from another Pennsylvania community–friends like Jacob Yoder, who has always held a special place in her heart. Since Mattie last saw Jacob, they’ve both grown into different people with different dreams. Jacob yearns to settle down, but Mattie can’t help but dream of what may lie over the western horizon. When a handsome Englisher tempts her to leave the Amish behind to search for adventure in the West, will her pledge to Jacob be the anchor that holds her secure?

About the Author

jan drexler

Jan grew up surrounded by books and storytellers. With Pastors and Teachers populating both sides of her extended family, we aren’t surprised that she wanted to be a first-class storyteller herself. Born and raised in Michigan, Jan is the descendant of Amish, Mennonite and Brethren immigrants who settled in Berks, Somerset and Lancaster Counties in Pennsylvania in the mid-1700’s. The descendants of these immigrants pioneered in Maryland, Ohio, and finally Elkhart and LaGrange Counties in Northern Indiana in the 1850’s.During the years when Jan was raising and homeschooling their children, she and her husband moved nine times in thirty years, finally landing in South Dakota where they enjoy incredibly Michigan-like weather. A northerner is always a northerner! The ideas for Jan’s books come from the stories told by her parents and grandparents, seasoned with a lot of research and imagination.

Excerpt of Mattie’s Pledge

Mattie could feel the blush rising in her cheeks. Now, seven years later, he wasn’t a boy any more. “Of course I remember you. You and your sisters always played with us. I remember ….” Her voice lost its strength. He would think she was a silly little girl for remembering him the way she did.

“I remember how you used to hate fishing.” His voice was deeper, without the straining squeaks of the fourteen-year-old he had been when she last saw him. “You hated baiting the hook.”

“No matter what you said, I know it hurt those poor worms.”

“They were going to be eaten when we caught the fish.” Jacob shrugged his shoulders and grinned again. “And you hated taking the fish off the hook, too.”

Mattie shuddered, in spite of herself. “And you always laughed at me.”

His brown eyes looked deep into hers. “Because you were always so much fun to tease. And now we’re moving west together.”
