A Forbidden Rumspring by Keira Andrews
When two young Amish men find love, will they risk losing everything?
In a world where every detail of life—down to the width of a hat brim—is dictated by God and the all-powerful rules of the community, two men dare to imagine a different way. At 18, Isaac Byler knows little outside the strict Amish settlement of Zebulon, Minnesota, where there is no rumspringa for exploration beyond the boundaries of their insular world. Isaac knows he will have to officially join the church and find a wife before too long, but he yearns for something else—something he can not name.
Dark tragedy has left carpenter David Lantz alone to support his mother and sisters, and he can not put off joining the church any longer. But when he takes on Isaac as an apprentice, their attraction grows amid the sweat and sawdust. David shares his sinful secrets, and he and Isaac struggle to reconcile their shocking desires with their commitment to faith, family and community.
Now that they have found each other, are they willing to lose it all?
