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.

A good way to spend a rainy day
As a lover of fantasy I didn’t want to stop reading this book. Every moment I could spare I would lay back and enjoy a few chapters. It always kept me interested the whole way until the last page and the ending tied everything off nicely.
The idea behind the book could have easily come across as cheesy but this was well written and enjoyable.
This book is so good. It's honestly got so many twists, turns and cliffhangers I just don't know what to do with myself!! I hope to read the next one soon ❤️
