Brighter Dawn$17.99Add to cart
Ivy Zimmerman is successfully navigating her life as a young Mennonite woman, one generation removed from her parents’ Old Order Amish upbringing. But when her parents are killed in a tragic accident, Ivy’s way of life is upended. As she deals with her grief, her sisters’ needs, and her Dawdi and Mammi’s strict rules, Ivy finds solace in both an upcoming trip to Germany for an international Mennonite youth gathering and in her great-aunt’s story about Ivy’s great-grandmother’s visit to Germany in the late 1930s.
As Ivy grows suspicious that her parents’ death wasn’t, in fact, an accident, she gains courage from what she learns of her great-grandmother’s time in World War II Germany. With her great-aunt’s encouragement and the inspiration of her great-grandmother, Ivy seeks justice for her parents, her sisters, and herself.
From the talented pen of bestselling author Leslie Gould comes a powerful and evocative dual-time story partly set during World War II.
