This engrossing saga of rejection, love, forgiveness and redemption is a very entertaining and thought-provoking read. Well-written and satisfying. I enjoyed this book very much and it's insights into the Amish way of live were fascinating.

This book is amazing!! It is Amish based, but nothing like you've read concerning the Amish before. This book deals with a "fence jumper" who travels through the life of an "Englisher" and then has his own family before attempting to mend the fences that he jumped in his youth.

Great read, good values, and a wonderful lesson for all of us!

I loved this book! Great story, view into life of the Amish and those that leave the order. Sensitively and kindly done in respect to the cultures and values.

Dusk. A barn lot on an Amish farm in Ohio. Will's father doesn't recognize him at first-it's been eight years-so he holds a match up to Will's face to see him better. "I thought you were dead," Levi Mullet says flatly, then blows out the match and walks away. No hug. No party. This is not how it's supposed to be. Where's the fatted calf, the celebration?
Living in the Deep South, Will has raised a family of his own. But the heart of a prodigal is never far from home. For years he's worked-the only ethic Will understands-to overcome the unrelenting jugementalism, the ban, of his father and the Old Order Amish, while a festering resentment takes its toll on his wife and children. Only when the life of Will's youngest son hangs in the balance does he begin to understand the truth-that love is the proof of God, and forgiveness is the proof of love.
Levi's Will is the haunting story of a fallen man seeking to reconcile the best of the old world with the lessons of the new, in the process building a bridge across three generations.

This is a great book. It's about an Amish family that spans generations and is ultimately, about love and forgiveness in a different setting.
