Faith kept me plain. Science made me complicated.

Book 1 in the Grounded Trilogy

My name is Lydia Troyer. Growing up in Hemlock Hollow, my life has always been simple. Things in my community haven’t changed much in over three hundred years, since the time my Amish ancestors came to what is now the Green Republic. I milk my cow by hand, make fresh bread every morning, and hope to be courted by Jeremiah, a boy I’ve known since childhood.

When my father falls ill, the English doctor says a hospital outside the wall can heal him. Jeremiah convinces me to go on rumspringa, to experience the outside world as an Englisher in order to be closer to my father during his recovery. Others have gone before me. They claim it’s an adventure. But adventure turns to horror as an ordinary light switch thrusts me into a new world, and revelations about my personal history make me question everything I believe. 

All my life I’ve worked to be simple. I can’t pretend anymore. Nothing about me is simple.

Amish meet x-men

I couldn't put this exciting read down. From opening to ending it kept you interested and involved. You wanted the heroes to win and the way the boundaries between the good people and the bad people were blurry made it seem all the more real. Can't wait to read the next one.

Couldn't put it down until it was finished!
