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.

Creative and intriguing
I really enjoyed the creative storyline of Grounded. The characters were relatable and there was a good mix of excitement, tension and even a little romance. I absolutely was ready to purchase other books in the series!
Fantastic beginning to the series!
The premise of this book is brilliant. The author weaves an incredibly realistic view of what a futuristic world might be like. The battle between good and evil, government and rebels, and varying cultures is the result of a creative genius. I would highly recommend this series.
