Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!
If you haven’t already, don’t forget to enter my Goodreads book giveaway for an autographed copy of Ruby, Between the Cracks. It is on the sidebar, but it ends this Thursday!
This week my teaser is from “Thrown to the Wolves” by Holly Newcastle. Not quite the Amish romance genre (though I can see there is a possible romance in the wings,) “Thrown to the Wolves” is more of an Amish adventure. I am only 20% of the way through, and am eagerly awaiting the upcoming “peril”. (This is book 1 of the “Faith in Peril” trilogy.) A pleasant read so far!
It was as if every shadow might hold something sinister—something terrible lurked, waiting, and this wickedness was fast approaching.
“Anna,” I murmured, although she couldn’t hear me. “We need to go. I don’t like this one bit.”
Holly Newcastle, Thrown to the Wolves
The Glick children are precocious and exuberant, chasing rainbows and butterflies and living happily on their farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. But when five-year-old Jacob Glick wanders off into the woods, his sisters, Rebekah and Anna, are obliged to retrieve him. The siblings soon stray too far, as darkness falls, and they are lost.
Rebekah, the oldest of the children, is eighteen and ready to marry, although the man she has had her eye on is courting someone else. To her chagrin, only Daniel Stoltzfus has offered for her, but an incident in the past is the reason she is so determined to give him a wide berth. Never, under any circumstance, would she consider courting Daniel.
While lost in the woods and struggling to survive, the Glick children are forced to find food and shelter. Rebekah and Anna are tested not only mentally and physically, but also in their faith, as they are pushed to the limits of what they can endure. A danger lurks, stalking them, and, when they are attacked by wolves, it’s quick-thinking and luck that saves them, but the ordeal is far from over.
