Together they won four World Championships, two Olympic gold medals�and the hearts of millions of fans. To our way of thinking, it might seem limited and restrictive. It popped back into my head when I was thinking about an apocalyptic contagion. It is from these movements and of others following which have settled the Clinton Township district east of Goshen and on over into Lagrange County in the Honeyville and Topeka areas. ���������������� The Amish, as has been said before, are a peculiar people.

However, they themselves generally use the term only for members of their faith community, and not as an ethnic designation. A part-time writer who runs a construction business in Virginia, Eicher’s website describes him as “an Amish insider.” His books include the “Adam’s County Trilogy” (known as the “Rebecca” series), set in southwestern Ohio, and the “Hannah” series, set in northern Indiana and Montana.

In author Kelly Irvin's first installment in the Bliss Creek Amish series, readers will find a charming, romantic story of how God works even in the darkest moments. All with the usual politics and backstabbing you would expect in such a cycle involving the Church, of course. Three died immediately; two others died in hospital by the next morning. Mennonite Literature, not a term often spoken of or written about in literary circles, nor is it a section that one might find at the neighborhood Barnes and Noble.

Again, I won’t even spend time on what IF’S of whether or not any of this is true or if it is all scripted.

Translated by Esther Klaassen Bergen; edited by Lawrence Klippenstein. Earlier works of experimental fiction by Dallas Wiebe and Janet Kauffman are joined by recent works of speculative and fantasy fiction such as the novels of Keith Miller and Sofia Samatar, suggesting possible new directions for Mennonite writers.
